NEW YORK, USA // The showbiz bug bit Garrett Wagner at a very young age when his rendition of ‘Cabaret’ brought Our Lady of Lourdes grade school to its feet. Today he’s an entertainment marketing executive (who sings in the car, badly) with over 20 years of industry experience. Wagner is a leader who has built and managed cross-functional creative teams responsible for campaigns that have moved culture, won awards, and built brands.
Currently Wagner is the SVP Executive Creative Director for Showtime Networks, where he’s responsible for all creative marketing of the brand and its extensive slate of programming. Over the past year, his work has led to massive streaming growth, record audiences for series like The Chi & The Circus, and the network’s biggest debut season ever with Your Honor.
Prior to this, Wagner served as Director of Global Creative Marketing for Netflix where he was responsible for worldwide marketing of a slate of drama series, including those from creators Jenji Kohan, Ryan Murphy, and Shonda Rhimes. Before that, as VP of Creative for FX Networks, Wagner directed branding efforts and launched series such as Fargo, The Americans, People v OJ, and Pose to name just a few, amassing a record seven consecutive PromaxBDA Marketing Team of the Year awards, and four consecutive Clio Marketing Team of the Year awards.
Earlier in his career, Wagner was VP Creative Director of Logo, launching six seasons of what would become a true cultural phenomenon, RuPaul’s Drag Race. He started his career at Showtime Networks, as a key member of the team that led the ‘no limits’ branding effort.
Wagner’s work has received multiple PromaxBDA, Clio Key Art, GLAAD, Mark, and One Show awards.
