Reed brings extensive expertise in IT operations leadership. He is a creative technology leader with a proven track record in the hospitality, real estate, and restaurant industries – all of which share key characteristics with senior living. At Capital Senior Living, Reed will drive the overall IT strategy and lead all IT departments, including network development, security, systems and desktop support.
Throughout his career, Reed has delivered a full spectrum of solutions that leverage the latest technology while emphasizing cross functional collaboration, automation and consolidation to simplify operations and meet business goals.

There, he supported several clients in the hospitality industry setting up IT support infrastructure and performing in-depth market analyses.
As Executive Vice President and Chief Information Officer at Aimbridge Hospitality, Reed partnered with the IT Steering Committee to develop the “One Solution” strategy that improved operational and cost efficiency across financial management, procurement, sales and lead management, business intelligence, and corporate communications.
Notably, he delivered a lead management solution on schedule adding over $3 million in sales within the first year. Reed also led the introduction of an automated revenue capture system that reduced staffing and improved the timing and accuracy of revenue feeds from 800 hotels across 15 different hotel brands.
Earlier in his career, Reed held several senior technology roles where he spearheaded initiatives that applied innovative technology solutions to impact positive organizational and operational change.
“Jay brings an ideal combination of leadership experience and business acumen to our team.
