Reflect has appointed Lee Summers as chief executive officer to lead the company’s efforts to meet the growing demand for digital customer experiences in brick-and-mortar stores and physical venues.
Reflect provides enterprise-level digital signage, large-scale LEDs, video walls, interactive applications, wayfinding, and more. Reflect’s client roster includes more than 47 retailers, destinations and brands such as Target, GameStop, Best Buy, Verizon Wireless, Macy’s, Cedar Fair Entertainment Company, and Nebraska Furniture Mart, where Mr. Summers was previously employed and responsible for choosing Reflect’s in-store digital media program.
“Reflect is the best kept secret in retail,” said Mr. Summers. “As a client, I chose Reflect because it’s the only turnkey solution on the market. The system’s backbone is its robust software that is scalable and secure. These attributes are strengthened by a great culture that promotes creativity and digital innovation. I’m very pleased to join the team.”

His natural abilities coupled with his exceptional leadership and digital agency knowledge made him the ideal choice for CEO."
In addition to his previous position as manager of marketing, technology and strategic business development at Nebraska Furniture Mart, Mr. Summers’s experience has included management positions at The Integer Group, New Asset Advisors, Tracylocke and DDB. He attended the Art Institute of Dallas.
Outside of work, Mr. Summers enjoys spending time with his wife and two children and is an enthusiastic supporter of his children’s creative pursuits in the visual and performing arts. He also serves as the marketing chair for The Warren Center for Children with Developmental Challenges.
