Andy Darnley is the founder and president of Nationwide Lifts. The company, 15 franchises, and many affiliates serve the United States and Canada with quality lifts, ranging from traditional and contemporary home elevators to stair and wheelchair lifts and dumbwaiters.

Andy, who started the company 15+ years ago, holds a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the Rochester (N.Y.) Institute of Technology. In addition to being the boss, he remains a licensed elevator mechanic in several states and is a mentor to his mechanics.

A self-confessed workaholic, Andy, of Syracuse, has managed to find time to pen a book (about stair lifts, what else?) and develop new products for the company. In his free time, Andy likes to go boating with his wife and three children.
