Mike Berk is the president and CEO. He started his career in the Stair Lifts business March 1979 in metro NY. Working out of a pharmacy in Hartsdale NY selling and installing stair lifts and seat lift chairs. Over time the business grew and he added more products and services. By 1982 the company became too large for the pharmacy and relocated into a wharehouse and office building. For the next 12 years Mike assumed the position of sales manager and the company grew to become the largest first multi location and Stair Lifts installation and service company of Stair Lifts the Northeast. In 1996 he felt the time was right to move on.
He then opened Stair-A-Lift of NY. Mike realized early in his career that this business has a very personal relationship with the client. They are asking for the right answers to their very specific needs. He repeats the motto- "This is a personal need business, so keep it personal" to everyone working in the company and to himself often. His 35 years experience is invaluable to the company. He has built long lasting relationships with every manufacturer of Stair Lift Access Devices. Working with architects, rehab centers, physical therapists, various foundations and advocates along with custom contractors and the end users of these products he continued to build his knowledge and understanding of the proper applications of each variety of Disability Access Stair Lift equipment and most importantly how persons with specific Physical Mobility Challenges would use the Stair Lifts in their day to day lives.
