When Educational Data Systems, Inc (EDSI) CEO Kevin Schnieders started
working for his father's Dearborn-based company in the early 1990's,
EDSI had only one government contract worth $20,000. Since that time,
the company's focus on workforce development and management consulting
has driven its growth from one office with 18 employees, to its current
network of 26 offices with 450 employees in seven states, including
Michigan. The company generated $28 million in revenue last year.
