Phil Andrew joined Express Lift Co. in Northampton, the U.K., in 1978. Over the next 18 years, he held a range of positions with Express Lift. In 1996, he joined the elevator engineering group at the University of Northampton (then Nene College) as a Senior Lecturer, teaching the Lift and Escalator Industry Association Professional Diploma in Engineering (Lift and Escalator Technology). He led the team that developed the inter- nationally recognized Northampton MSc in Lift Engineering, then the Foundation Degree in Lift Engineering. In 2003, he was promoted to Principal Lecturer and Divisional Leader for engineering. From 2000 until his retire- ment in 2004, Andrew served on the National Interest Review Committee for the ASME/ANSI A17 code committee and represented the university on Committee MHE/4 of the British Standards Institution responsible for lift safety standards within the U.K. Dr. Stefan Kacmarczyk joined the elevator engineering group at the University of Northhampton as senior lecturer in 2002. In 2003, he became the course leader for MSc Lift Engineering, then postgraduate field leader for Lift Engineering. He has published over 70 journal and international conference papers in the area of vertical transportation and elevator engineering.
