Fuse CEO Featured in California Business Journal

Headshot SHL

“Fuse started because of my desire to focus on putting working solutions into the hands of the warfighter. I wanted to build a creative entity that applied the best practices of commercial design thinking to the problems that warfighters face – whether flying at night over the ocean or digging a fighting hole in the middle of the desert or trudging through a Pacific island and getting shot at.” So starts a Q&A with Fuse CEO and co-founder Sumner Lee in the California Business Journal.


Reporter Debra Amato asks, “How is Fuse doing things differently?”

Lee: “We’ve grown by connecting ourselves at the hip to the warfighter, building systems they need. We apply great, warfighter-focused design to the systems we build. Our teams go to the combat information center on a cruiser, the flag plot on a CVN and into E-2D Advanced Hawkeye squadrons, conducting workshops with pilots. We do that so we can give those guys better tools than they have today.”
