Stanley W. Fields
CEO, CFO, Founder
Stanley W. Fields is the founder, chief executive officer, chief financial officer and a director of United News International (UNI).
Fields is a serial entrepreneur with 30 years of experience in media, environmental initiatives and other businesses. Fields, who acknowledges “I failed my way to success,” says United News International is a culmination of lessons he learned the hard way and perhaps the best-timed business of his career.
In 2010, prior to founding UNI, Fields launched a pilot video news service called Net Green News. Prior to Net Green News, Fields was involved in the creation of several other media and environmental initiatives, including Cultural Creative Network and Pulse Information Network (PIN), and was an early investor in GridPoint Inc.
Outside of his business endeavors, Fields has also been involved with major philanthropic activities, including serving on the corporate board of the Environmental Media Association from 2006 through 2009.
Fields came of age at a boarding school in Singapore in early 1970s while his father ran a logging operation in remote Indonesia. He also spent time in Manila, the Philippines, as a youth. The experience shaped his world view as an adult. He often refers to himself as a “global citizen” because of the unique time and place he came of age.
Fields is a fourth-generation Oregonian and resides with his family in Lake Oswego, Oregon.
