About the speaker

Stanfield Gray Founder/CEO, DIG SOUTH & DIG Innovation Conference

Stanfield Gray lives at the intersection of innovation and the New South, the place where culture and the digital economy intersect to produce startup offspring. The founder of DIG SOUTH Media and DIG ICON (Innovation Conference), Stanfield’s goal is to match leading global brands with fast-growth startups, help them forge collaborative relationships and get deals done. In other words, DIG is about knowledge and networking. Held at the Charleston Gaillard Center, DIG has grown from 454 to 2000+ annual attendees and hosted more than 5000 total attendees since 2013. In 2017, DIG will welcome 100+ speakers including VOX CEO/Chair Jim Bankoff, Jet.com Chief Customer Officer Liza Landsman, DraftKings CEO Jason Robins and other thought leaders. DIG tracks focus on digital innovation in technology, business and marketing. Gray holds a BA from the South Carolina Honors College and an MA from the University of Mississippi. And, more importantly than all of the aforementioned, Stanfield is most inspired by his wife, Sunny, and their two whip-smart kids, Stella and Garrison.
