Mark DeWitt

Mark DeWitt started in the elevator trade as a sales representative with Miami Elevator upon the completion of his MBA. He advanced to Branch Manager with ThyssenKrupp Elevator (purchased Miami Elevator) and was in charge of running the Savannah, GA Branch that encompassed a two hour radius from Charleston, SC to the Florida border. Within this time period, he managed 32 employees and over 1,000 units under maintenance. He was also charged with not only managing the operations of two growing cities (Savannah, GA and Charleston, SC); but, also responsible for selling maintenance, repairs, modernization and new construction.  He returned to his hometown of Jacksonville, FL and helped to grow the service operations of Schindler Elevator as the New Business Development Representative. He would like to help you with his industry knowledge by bringing you a customer focused elevator company that puts you back in control.
