Andy Lehmkuhl founded Edge with a self-promise to build a company with a unique and outstanding offering back in 2009. Andy was born in Rhinelander, Wisconsin and spent many of his early years in Oconto Falls. After graduating from college at the University of Oshkosh with degrees in Marketing and Human Resources, Andy worked at developing dental networks in rural populations. Andy then gained 8 years experience as the Director of Professional Relations at Wisconsin’s largest dental group helping the group grow from 60 dentists to over 100 and more than doubling retention rates. It was here that his vision for a company that would cultivate transactions with a fresh and personable philosophy focused on small business and leveling the playing field with larger groups began.
In 2011 Edge added their first accountant, this department was soon followed by a variety of other services that Edge offers today. In his career, Andy has helped over 250 dentists find new employment opportunities, helped transition over 100 dental offices and has built a nationwide network of connections. His talent for negotiation and his incredible ability to make things happen make Andy the guy you want on your team. When not helping dentists retire and working through transitions, Andy spends time with his wife Jessica, daughter Emerson, and son Wesley. He also enjoys traveling, carpentry, hunting, fishing, coaching baseball, sports (Go Badgers, Brewers and Packers) and spending time at his cabin in Crivitz.
Andy has a keen interest and desire to know more and be more connected than the next person, to that end he has sat on the Board of Directors for the Wisconsin Dental Association Foundation, the Board of Directors for the Association of Army Dentistry, and is a member of the National Society of Certified Healthcare Business Consultants (NSCHBC). He was awarded the National Association of Certified Valuation Analysts (NACVA) 40 Under 40 for his work in valuing dental and medical practices, and is a past member of the Institute of Business Appraisers (IBA). Through our team’s and Andy’s efforts, Edge has been a 2015 and 2016 Recipient of the prestigious Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce (MMAC) and Council of Small Business Executives (COSBE) Future 50 Award.
