Grayson Miller
Director of Digital Business Development

Facebook / Twitter Instagram / LinkedIn / Website

As the Director of Digital for StyleDemocracy, Grayson lends his expertise to almost all facets of StyleDemocracy. Years of sharpening his teeth in the retail industry and a post-graduate degree in Digital Marketing has helped Grayson become a leader in the digital retail media space.  When Grayson isn’t working on events, social media or digital marketing strategies for StyleDemocracy, he can often be found at most of Toronto’s premier fashion events networking, blogging and taking photographs for StyleDemocracy. The words different and weird could be used to describe him, but he embraces it like a badge of honour. Thinking different and being different is what makes him tick.  In Grayson’s opinion great style is something that everyone can achieve with the right information and knowing the right places to shop.

Oliver currently holds the title of Director of Inventory Solutions and Events Coordinator for StyleDemocracy. Oliver began working in the retail sale event business at a very early age, when his dad started the company back in 1999. While his birth certificate may not indicate too many years of experience, he knows the in’s and out’s of warehouse sales. When it comes to style, Oliver starts from the ground up. Oliver makes sure he dresses with simplicity in order to let his shoes do all the talking. You can be sure to see him adopting that same approach on the golf links as he is an avid golf enthusiast.
