Rich Simons / EDGE Business Systems

Rich Simons is a founding partner at EDGE Business Systems who helps growing organizations acquire office technology solutions, specifically copy-print-scan devices, custom for their business.  While the industry that Rich serves has many commoditized products, he believes that every office is unique and deserves a custom solution.   With this mentality, EDGE made the 2017 Inc 5000 list as one of the fastest growing private companies in the country and the only one from its industry.

Before launching EDGE, Rich worked in the land development and real estate industry representing land developers in commercial, residential and multi-use opportunities.  After a successful career delivering projects throughout the Midwest and South, Rich sensed the downturn of the economy in 2006 and was looking again for an aggressive change.   Shortly after relocating to Atlanta, Rich entered his current industry in 2007 and has been going strong for 11 years and counting.

Aside from long work weeks, Rich spends time with his family, coaching youth sports (he is still working on his patience!) and plenty of time in the gym to maintain his sanity.

Rich loves connecting on LinkedIn and learning about your unique situation whether it’s healthcare, legal, education or general business.  He can be reached for questions at
