Firm Brings Government Relations and Communications Counsel to Help Colorado Businesses Accelerate Growth


Denver, C.O. (May 29, 2019) – Banner Public Affairs today announced its latest expansion with the addition of a new office in Denver, Colorado. Recognizing the growth opportunity as indicated by the state’s rapidly growing population and an increasingly diversified economy, Banner senior vice president, Christian Whiton, has relocated to expand the firm’s government relations and communications services to Colorado’s capital. The Denver office is now the fifth location for Banner Public Affairs.

“Denver’s economy is growing quickly, and companies need trusted partners to navigate the technology, government and defense space and position for success,” said Brett Thompson, partner at Banner Public Affairs. “Christian Whiton is well-equipped to help forward-leaning organizations in Colorado partner with the government.”

Prior to his move to Denver, Whiton was based jointly in Banner’s Washington and Los Angeles offices. He joined Banner in 2017, after serving as a senior advisor for strategic communications at the U.S. Department of State. During the Presidential Transition, Whiton was the media advisor for the nominations of the Secretary of State, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, and Ambassadors to Japan and Israel.

“The addition of the Denver office means that Banner Public Affairs now has an office in every major time zone within the United States,” said Brett Thompson. “More expertise in more places allows us to continue tackling some of the most complex issues in a changing political environment, helping our clients thrive during their big moments.”
