About Joe Gilbody

After spending nearly twenty years working in various roles within Information Technology, Joe became heavily involved in the management of an emerging technology called Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) with companies such as Rowenta, Inc. and the Stride Rite Corporation. It was through this experience that Joe realized the value of inter company data exchanges, and saw the potential in forming his own company.

In 1994, Joe ran with his vision and started a one-person EDI / E-commerce staffing and consulting company from the front porch of his home. Today, EDI Staffing owns a 20,000 square-foot office building in Raynham, Massachusetts. We have evolved into a full service e-commerce company with offices in three states, and consultants working for clients across the US. EDI Staffing works with more than 30 percent of Fortune 1000 companies, and continues to expand with revenue growth of more than 40 percent in the last three years.
