His quick action during COVID kept the company operating and healthy. He embodies the type of leadership we embrace as a business. I’m proud to have him in this expanded role and as the future of the company’s ownership.”
Edge stated that Lewis was key to Instore Design Display’s long-term succession plan and future growth. “Trevor has become a minority shareowner in the business, with a goal of transitioning ownership to him over time,” he explained. “Succession planning is imperative for the future growth of InStore Design Display.

“My career has focused heavily on marketing displays,” said Lewis. “Working in the industry’s trade show sector helped me better understand client needs and the trends impacting their businesses. It was the perfect preparation for my move to IDD. Since joining, I have worked to attract the right people and develop the processes and technologies we needed to create efficiencies and build differentiation. We were able to service clients during the toughest times brought on by COVID. InStore Display Design will continue to strengthen its customer-centric focus and explore new technologies to better serve our clients display needs.”
