Spinelli Succeeds Hoover as President of Eltech Elevator

Bronx, NY – Bryan Clairmont, President of American Elevator Group, today announced several promotions, including that of Gregg Spinelli to the position of President of Bronx-based Eltech Elevator.

Spinelli transfers to Eltech from Unitec Elevator, where he served as Vice President of Operations. He succeeds Michael Hoover, who in addition to his previous role as President of American Elevator & Machine Corporation, accepted the additional responsibility for leading Eltech after the founders of the business retired at the end of 2021.

Hoover joins AEG’s Corporate team as Senior Vice President of Business Development, reporting to recently promoted Chief Revenue Officer Eric Lazear. Michael will be tasked with accelerating AEG’s portfolio growth objectives, with a particular focus on strategic accounts.

In accepting his new appointment, Hoover commented: “I am delighted that Gregg will be driving Eltech’s success from this point. Eltech is a significant player in the New York independent service sector, and Gregg’s energy and determination will continue to improve their deserved reputation for quality of service. I look forward to supporting Gregg’s ambitions, and those of AEG’s other elevator companies, as I work to introduce new opportunities from our corporate center.”

Clairmont agreed, adding: “We are so fortunate to have this breadth of experienced leadership to draw from to drive our business. The promotions of Gregg, Michael and Eric to their new positions will continue to support our declared intent to deliver the highest service standard to our customers.”
