It is with deep sadness that we share the news of the passing of Dr. Eur. Eng. Gina Barney on Thursday, 6 July 2023, as officially announced by colleagues at Lift Industry News. Dr. Barney was not only an engineer and researcher but also an extraordinary leader in the vertical transport industry.

Throughout her illustrious career, Dr. Barney authored an impressive collection of 23 books and numerous publications, solidifying her reputation as a foremost expert in the field. She held pivotal positions in industry organizations, including the BSI’s MHE/4 lift committee and the CIBSE lift group. Additionally, she served as the Director of Gina Barney Associates.

Dr. Gina Barney had a longstanding collaboration with Elevatori Magazine, where she contributed as the English Editor from 1988 (when the magazine became bilingual) until 2018. Even after stepping down, she remained an Honorary English Editor, consistently ensuring the magazine maintained its high standards.
