Ed graduated from the University of Florida School of Architecture in 1968, and returned to Palm Beach County to practice architecture. After gaining five years of experience with several renowned architectural firms, he joined forces with John Glidden to open Oliver & Glidden Architects in 1975. Over the next 30 years, the firm expanded exponentially and became known as Oliver-Glidden-Spina & Partners (OGSP). In 2008, they restructured the firm to allow the senior partners to pursue their individual business objectives, and under the banner of Oliver Design Group, Ed and his team can now pursue a variety of business opportunities.
Ed has four grown children, two granddaughters, and hopes for many more – much like the typical Italian family. Ed and his wife live on a 20-acre ranch in western Martin County, where they raise Brangus cattle and enjoy living in harmony with wildlife and nature.
