United Technologies’ sales have soared in recent years thanks to a booming construction market in China and demand from the United States military. The Hartford, Conn.-based company’s strong brands—like elevator manufacturer Otis and jet engine-maker Pratt & Whitney—helped it rake in $65 billion in revenue last year, placing it once again at number 45 on the Fortune 500 list. In November 2014, Gregory J. Hayes replaced Louis Chênevert as CEO, who had a strong performance record and helped the company achieve 12% annual returns since 2008. Recent moves, like paring the conglomerate down to focus primarily on aviation and construction, have paid off so far. Hayes has also suggested that he may sell UT’s Sikorsky unit.
