Peter Kruse



CFO/CEO, Peter Kruse, has a personal vested interest in the home elevator space. When he was in school completing his architecture degree, his father become very ill with kidney disease. Peter and his brother often had to carry their father up the stairs after his treatments because he was so weak. Peter looked everywhere to find affordable and local mobility solutions but couldn’t find a company that specialized in accessible homes. That’s why he started StarLift—to fill the need for mobility solutions in the Twin Cities area.
