When you think of a city that has the best of both coasts, Denver really has it all. With the exception of a shoreline. It's no wonder people want to live here, and businesses see Colorado as an ideal place to start up or relocate. We tend to think of New York or Los Angeles when we consider big names in television. However, Denver-based, High Noon Entertainment has made a name for themselves, producing some of the highest rated shows on Food Network, HGTV, Discovery Channel, Travel Channel and Animal Planet, among others.
Jim Berger, CEO of High Noon Entertainment started the company in 1997 with three partners he had worked with in his television news days at KUSA. Together they launched wildly popular shows, Emergency Vets and Unwrapped and continued to produce winning programs leading to current hits like Cake Boss, Fixer Upper and Dude, You're Screwed.
With main offices in Denver and a presence in both New York City and L.A., High Noon and their staff manage to work in the top of the industry while maintaining a more tolerable, Colorado lifestyle.
In this Pro-Business Colorado edition of Connect & Collaborate, Jim Berger shares some business strategy, and highs and lows with Dave Tabor of CACI.
Also with a keen eye on Colorado businesses, is Frederic de Loizaga, Senior Associate with CBRE in Denver. Frederic focuses on commercial properties in the South Metro Denver market, for companies considering relocating to Colorado. CBRE is fine tuned on real estate by analyzing the potential labor force, the political landscape, and where an industry's competition lies, just to name a few.
"The Denver market is as hot as it can be. So many groups want to break in. There are a lot of first time buyers to Colorado." ~ Frederic de Loizaga
It's the evident success of businesses in Denver that draw more companies, and more job-seekers to our fine city. Opportunity abounds.
