Louis Chenevert, a renowned Canadian entrepreneur has said that no matter the pedigree, educational background or social status in the community, you can be something people will be looking up to. Louis Chenevert was born in 1958 in Montreal, Canada. His life as a boy followed the pattern of other children in the neighborhood and his parents were not part of the affluent. They led a simple life with normal struggles of raising their children.
As he kept growing up, Louis Chenevert knew what he wanted. He kept telling himself that he would one day be at the top. That is what is happening in his life. To date, Louis has been a production manager at General Motors, an advisor of Goldman Sachs, one of the world’s reputable service companies, and a CEO of United Technologies (UTC) among other positions. Mr. Chenevert acquired the entry-level education that later enabled him to attend classes at HEC Montreal Business School at the University of Montreal where he graduated with a degree in production management. With skills in production management, one is able to major into the production of quality products in large quantities and at a very high speed using the least amount of money.
Now with a degree at hand, Louis Chenevert went out to search for a job. His first job was at General Motors, a motor vehicle assembly plant located at St. Therese, Quebec. While at GM, Louis Chenevert brought many changes to the production department where he was the head. After some time, his friend, Guy Hachey, would give him several responsibilities of oversight. At one point, Guy said of the production, “We were now able to .produce a new vehicle every 60 seconds. There was no room for errors. If we made a mistake, it’d mean 60 defective cars in 60 minutes.”
Louis Chenevert worked for General Motors for 14 years. He later moved to Pratt & Whitney Canada (PWC), an aerospace company that specializes in the production of aircraft engines. Although Louis Chenevert did not have knowledge in aircraft engine production, the company recorded increased production during his tenure. In 1999, Louis Chenevert was named PWC’s president. The company employs over 3,000 workers.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably already heard of the fashionista known as Doe Deere. Her name has become synonymous with high-end beauty products that have been made available to everyone without pretentious prices. The brand creator of both Lime Crime and Poppyangeloff has made herself by a slew of effective social marketing campaigns that have set the standard for many would-be entrepreneurs around the globe.
It would be unfair to say that these two brand creations are her only assets, no matter how successful they have been proven to be. She has also established herself as a social media icon for her unique ability to immortalize herself in photographic form, and has also made her mark in the music world as well. Sometimes daring, but always on the forefront of cutting-edge fashion and female empowerment.
Doe Deere, born Xenia Vorotova, stays true to her sign of Gemini with the ability to transform herself into various female fashion forms. Although the creative look may shift, she retains the ability to remain recognizable within the ever-growing sea of social media personalities. Perhaps her Gemini-like dual nature abilities stem from having been born in Izhevsk, Russia, moving to the United States while retaining the ability to speak both languages. Her insight as to multi-agriculturalist concepts of beauty have been embraced worldwide and rocketed her to iconic status in the world of fashion.
Having moved to the United States at the impressionable age of 17, Doe Deere focused her energies on studying fashion at New York City’s Fashion Institute of Technology. The symbiosis of fashion education and natural eye-for-style was expounded upon by her marriage to Mark Dumbleton, the co-creator of Lime Crime. With over 20 years together, their bond has deeply been established as an unbreakable one, both in private and professional terms.
Whether you are new to the scene of Lime Crime and Poppyangeloff, or remember days performing in the fairy tale rock band known as Sky Salt, there is still lots to look forward to from Doe Deere.

Anyone seeking to meet or see Eric Lefkosky in person should make their way to the Motel Bar as he is an avid fan of the hotel’s chicken salad and French fries and he always makes a point of going there at least once a week.
Eric is quite an early riser as his typical day kicks off at five in the morning during which he hits the gym and ends at six in the evening. His day is usually characterized by non-stop work at Groupon and a twelve-minute lunchbreak. In other words, Eric works for approximately twelve hours straight before he retires to his home in the evening. In the past, he would quickly turn off work mode once he’s out of the office but thanks to tremendous growth that the company is experiencing, it is difficult for him to leave his work in the office.
Even though he used to enjoy spending time on his previous companies, Eric reveals that he now enjoys focusing on only one thing at a time since he took over as the Chief Executive Officer of Groupon. When asked about his opinion on the harsh criticism that the company receives, Eric says that negative reception from the media is quite normal for growing companies and even cites conglomerates like Facebook and Amazon. In other words, he perceives this as a trend for growing companies and considers it as a sign of growth. It is difficult for Eric Lefkosky to avoid the media as his day to day work involves being under the public eye, but when he is not at work, he often tries his best to stay out of the press.
Eric and his business partner on good terms. He considers his colleague as a close friend more than a best business partner as they have been working together for more than a decade. Nevertheless, he reveals that things have not always been smooth between them. For instance, during the early years when business was still low, they had a lot of tension between them, but now that the grass is greener the pressure is no longer there. Plus, they run different companies now thereby leaving no chances of having friction between them.
Eric’s strongest quality is the fact that he is success driven and leaves no room for thoughts of failure. He can juggle the roles of being a businessman, a husband, and a father efficiently by creating boundaries between work and his personal life and executing each of his duties at the right time and place.

This is a placeholder account for Talos Energy LLC in Houston, Texas. Questions about the company should be directed to 713-328-3000.
The company recently went public after merging with Stone Energy, a deal costing almost $2 billion. Instead of filing for an initial public offering (IPO), Talos opted to join with Stone Energy Company which was already publicly traded, by acquiring controlling interest of 63% while Stone remained with 37%. With the closing of the deal, a more massive offshore energy player was created to focus on the Mexican and United States sides of the Gulf of Mexico. Talos Energy has already begun trading on NYE under “TALO” sticker. Tim Duncan, Talos’ Chief Executive Officer described the move as a transformational combination. He added that Talos can now capitalize on its high-quality asset portfolio due to its strategic positioning, which also enables it to take advantage of potential opportunities to further develop its business.
Talos Energy was established six years ago by Timothy Duncan, with the $600 million financial support of top private equity firms Riverstone Holdings and Apollo Global Management, it was able to focus its operations on the Gulf. The firm had planned to go public through an IPO in either 2014 or 205, but following the oil burst, they postponed the plan. Talos was successful last summer when it won some of the offshore bids with other partners of the energy reform process in Mexico, which opened up offshore blocks to foreign investors. The Zama-1 filed discovery is the first major one in Mexico’s deregulation process, and the exploratory drilling uncovered 1.4 billion to 2 billion barrel of crude oil, which could yield around 425 million barrels.
