Leader of ShelfGenie, the Top Name in Custom Shelving and Home Storage Solutions
ShelfGenie CEO Andy Pittman has a long history with the organization, having first joined the company as a franchisee in 2009. Seven years later, Andy became the chief operating officer and last year, he took the helm of the organization as CEO. Andy continues as a franchisee owner and explains that being a franchise partner makes him a better CEO because there really isn’t much that the company franchise owners experience that he hasn’t faced himself.
In fact, Andy was among the earliest franchisee owners to join ShelfGenie, the leading home improvement and custom shelving franchise in the nation, when the company first began offering franchise opportunities 10 years ago. While he is proud of all the organization has accomplished thus far in the fragmented shelving, storage and home improvement industry, Andy sees an optimistic and expansive future for ShelfGenie.
“I still think there is huge potential for ShelfGenie. I think over the next two to four years, we can easily double the number of territories we’re in,” he says.

The Design Process
With ShelfGenie, the design process is a personal but simple one. Your personal designer will schedule a time to come to your home and discuss your storage needs and design tastes. Based on these discussions and an assessment of your storage and cabinet space needs, a custom-designed solution will be drawn up for you then and there, with no obligation to you. Upon your approval of the design, ShelfGenie will create and install your unique, expertly crafted storage solution.
Andy is uniquely qualified to lead ShelfGenie as the company continues to expand. In his dual role as CEO and franchisee, he has invested much into the success of the organization. Andy has illustrated leadership as an active member of the ShelfGenie Franchise Advisory Council. In addition, the commitment Andy and his team have to quality and superb customer service has received recognition, with him twice being named Franchisee of the Year.
