Ralph Edwards

Director

Ralph Edwards is a champion of small business. Having spent the last 25 years owning and operating a variety of businesses, all of which are still in operation today, Ralph's understanding of the challenges business owners face helps to guide the FCA Board.

For eight years Ralph owned and successfully managed Bright Eyes Sunglass Stores Australia. He took the existing business from 80 to 140 franchisees and in that time improved franchisee margins and profitability, making Bright Eyes one of Australia's largest sunglass retail networks.

Ralph has been a member of the FCA QLD State Chapter for a number of years, serving in the position of Vice President for two years and as State Chapter President for the last five years. Ralph made the BRW Fast 100 list three years in a row and relishes the challenges and relationships that are made through running your own business.
