Bright Young Man Returns to Grow BIG Business on Hilton Head Island Lee edwards, one of Hilton Head Island’s brightest young entrepreneurs, speaks of The Greenery’s success and his hopes for the future.The old adage, “The more things change, the more they stay the same,” resonates with edwards, who today presides at the business his father began nearly four decades ago.Despite the recent economic downturn, edwards has still found ways to be successful through careful spending and a sharp business plan.
Today, however, it houses a boutique filled with antiques and decorative items.
That responsibility, coupled with his business, has made edwards keenly aware of the need to keep Hilton Head a vital, sustainable community, not just for his own family’s welfare but also for his employees.
When he learned that Mayor Peeples was forming a task force to study the island’s future, it sparked his interest.
“He’s always been a self-starter,” said his father, who promptly put his son in charge of the company’s construction division.
When the chance to expand into the Charleston market presented itself, edwards was eager to tackle the challenge.
