DENVER, SEPTEMBER 17 – Television and media industry veteran Patrick Jager has joined Denver-based media production and marketing services companies Everwise Entertainment and Banner Media Group as EVP/Chief Creative Officer and Partner. The announcement was made today by Everwise President Natalie Tysdal.

In his new role, Jager will lead the integration of Everwise with Banner Media Group, a sister company to Everwise focused on providing marketing and brand development services for start-up and established brands.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Patrick and his incredible talent to Everwise Entertainment and Banner,” said Natalie Tysdal, president of Everwise. “In a time when the media landscape is constantly evolving past traditional models, our companies were created to tackle communications issues with a nimble, 30,000-foot view of client needs.

Some of his most successful efforts attained massive appeal and helped define their networks as iconic programs, particularly VH1’s “Behind the Music,” and A&E’s “Biography.” Most recently in his role as senior vice president of development at High Noon Entertainment, Jager served as executive producer on AMC’s “All-Star Celebrity Bowling,” HGTV’s “Fixer Upper,” Travel Channel’s “Trip Flip,” Reelz Channel’s “Polka Kings,” and Game Show Network’s “The Line,” along with over 300 hours of programming.
