Great leadership is seemingly impossible to find. United Technologies Corporation was one of the lucky companies to find such leadership in Louis Chênevert. Great leadership begins with knowledge and experience; knowing this, Louis Chênevert began his career by obtaining a bachelor’s degree in production management from the University of Montréal. He took his degree and began a career at General Motors, working there for 14 years. After his time with General Motors, he joined Pratt & Whitney where he was eventually elected president. In 2006 Louis Chênevert was elected chairman and CEO of UTC. During Louis Chênevert’s time with UTC, they faced major economic challenges. Most manufacturers were suffering due to an economic downturn, however, Louis Chênevert was able to use his experience and expertise to guide the company. Impressively, under his leadership, the company was able to not only survive but thrive as an innovator. An example of this expertise is during his initial time as CEO of UTC, where he brought the share-price of the company up from $37 to $117. This proved that good leadership can provide the tools to weather economic hardship. At a time where other companies felt pressure to lay off engineers, Louis Chênevert kept his on staff; even moving some to more expensive areas to increase efficiency. The products of that choice are clear when you consider that UTC assembles the most refined jet engines in the world and is the world’s largest manufacturer of escalators and elevators.

This accomplishment was made without the use of paying unfair wages, relocating to cheaper areas, or disregarding environmental concerns. Louis Chênevert didn’t participate in any outsourcing, making UTC a major supporter of manufacturing economies in Canada and the US. Louis Chênevert used his forward-thinking nature to ensure the company’s prosperity while supporting workers and aiding communities with quality jobs. In 2014 Louis Chênevert resigned and passed his position as CEO of UTC with Edward Kangas taking the helm.

“Hand me that bottle of beer,” so I would tell my wife after a long day at work. As I sit down on the sofa and guzzle down my drink, I feel relieved with the sweet scent and taste of my liquor. However, there is no nice beer like the one that is drunk in the presence of friends, especially the Canadian Craft Beer. Eli Gershkovitch has taken the ‘liquor store model’ to a whole new level. Using brews perfected in Gastown, Eli Gershkovitch has come up with the perfect ales, pilsners, and lagers that make Canadian revelers mouths’ water.

 

As the CEO of the Steamworks Brewing Company, Eli Gershkovitch has once again placed Canada on the global cartogram, helping a significant percentage of the Canadian Craft Beers scoop numerous awards in the just concluded Open Beer Championship. Some of the best Canadian Craft Beer brands in the market today include the Unibroue 17 Grande Reserve, Fat Tug IPA, Trois Pistoles, Peche Mortel En Fut De, Peche Mortel, and Nectarous.

 

To be the man he is today, Eli Gershkovitch has had to sacrifice a lot of time and energy to do what he loves best. Working as a pilot and lawyer but on a part time basis, Eli Gershkovitch has been able to create a balance between three distinct careers with being a master brewer dominating among the three. Currently, Steamworks Craft Breweries commands a huge following primarily because Canadians consider it the center of quality and value (CalgaryHerald). By using technology to his advantage, Eli Gershkovitch has been able to diversify and tap into markets that were once non-existent.

 

At the moment, Eli Gershkovitch is prospecting taking the business to the rest of the world, with the United States of America being his first pits stop. In a nutshell, Eli Gershkovitch has pioneered a new age whereby Canadian Craft Beer is now viewed by the rest of the world as the new black, something that was more of a fallacy a decade ago. It is without saying that out of the more than a hundred Canadian Craft Beers in production today, more than half of the batch beats beers from other parts of the world hands down.

There was a time when Key Performance Indicator or KPI for short, for the shipping industry was measured according to their on time performance. Each type of transportation had its own criteria. For rail movement, it was measured according to schedule departures, ship and aircraft movement was measured by their on time performance and the trucking industry was measured by the service type. Each type was seen as a separate entity when talking about KPI. Not so anymore. With the progress that has been made in all things internet, it is now possible to see it as one unit or entity.

With all this new technology, it is technically possible to track a package from the time the sender takes it to the shipment office, to the point at which it is delivered to the recipient. The problem now industry observers are facing is that they are not getting all the pertinent data to make an informed analysis when deciding KPI. This is because, when a shipment involves most if not all of the different types of shipping, some of the data is either getting lost or is just not available (LinkedIn). For those of you who are trying to make a decision based on performance, this can be a problem. Data such as the cost of shipping, customs clearing, final mile delivery arrangements, Minimum Quantity Commitment (MQC) are now in jeopardy.

However, there is a method to tackle these problems and it is called Electronic Data Interchange or EDI. A company such as Edisoft specializes in this by offering several different products. Started in the mid-1990’s Edisoft spent considerable resources in solving the KPI conundrum. They got the best heads in the business and worked on a software that seamlessly integrates EDI with accounting as well as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software. This allows businesses to take care of their shipping issues with their partners. The company offers several different end-to-end supply chain products such as Edisoft Merchant, MerchantXChange and Merchant QuickPAK. Edisoft Merchant is an integrated EDI platform, MerchantXChange is a Value Added Network and Merchant QuickPAK automates order promotion.
