The Hal Riney Icons of Marketing Dinner was created two years ago to recognize and celebrate the amazing innovation that makes the Bay Area so special. It was named after Hal Riney in recognition of his legacy in the creative community and the industry as a whole in the Bay Area. Each year, we take great importance in recognizing an icon from the industry that has contributed and affected the community, one that has left a significant legacy that we all continue to benefit from in our businesses.

This year, sfBIG honored Deborah Conrad, Intel CMO. Intel deserves the recognition as a company that has contributed technology at the very foundation of the computing industry, the web, and the digital world.

Would we even have a digital marketing industry today if it wasn’t for INTEL technology? Intel is a brand that has been built from here in the Bay Area, and morphed into a global icon and one of the most recognized and respected brands in the world. Deborah is a global marketing leader and a person who has been an important player in the Intel story.

One of the many highlights of the evening, sfBIG made its annual donation of $10,000 to the University of San Francisco in Hal Riney's name.
