The ITEN WIRED Team
Dean Davis is the Chief Information Officer for Gulf Winds Credit Union, a local financial institution serving the banking needs of Gulf Coast residents. Relatively new to the Pensacola area, Dean and his family relocated from the Bay Area California after working in technology leadership roles in a Silicon Valley based Credit Union for over 14 years. Originally from Hawaii, he graduated with his Bachelors in Information Systems at Brigham Young University Hawaii and his Masters in Information Systems at Hawaii Pacific University.
Dean resides in Gulf Breeze with his wife Jin and three kids (12, 14, and 16). Being new to the area, he was looking for an opportunity to volunteer in the community and to connect with like minded technology professionals and was introduced to ITEN Wired and enjoys helping out in the Logistics/Registration committee. In his free time he enjoys spending time with his family at the beach, home projects, and riding his motorcycle.

ITEN WIRED: GROWING THE CYBER COAST
ITEN (Innovation Technology Education Network) WIRED Summit is the Southeast’s premier cybersecurity and IT conference to connect, collaborate and build community with industry leaders,
entrepreneurs and educators on innovation, technology and entrepreneurship topics.
The three-day event highlights the area’s cybersecurity, information technology and entrepreneurial communities and explores emerging technology and innovators in start-up tech, artificial intelligence, robotics, and emerging technologies on the national scene.
The summit, which began as an economic development initiative in 2008 by the Greater Pensacola Chamber of Commerce, is now hosted by IT Gulf Coast and Florida West Economic Development Alliance.
ITEN WIRED also operates as a not-for-profit, tourism-focused, community event with proceeds being donated back to local STEM initiatives, including an endowment with the University of West Florida’s College of Science and Engineering.
The next ITEN WIRED Summit will take place on October 6-8, 2021.
Meet the Team
The ITEN WIRED planning team is composed of volunteers from IT Gulf Coast, Florida West Economic Development Alliance, and other members of our local IT, tech and entrepreneurial community.
