Above Average’s Patrick Courtney will be joining the multicultural-focused media brand Fuse Media in the new role of SVP, digital strategy and operations.

In his new position, based out of the company’s New York office, Courtney is tasked with expanding Fuse’s digital and social platforms and fostering new audience, as well as short-form content distribution and revenue opportunities.

Courtney is expected to start July 6 and report to Fuse Media President and CEO Michael Schwimmer.

Before joining Fuse, Courtney served as SVP of programming and marketing strategy for the digital media company Above Average where he managed programming, audience development, distribution and marketing programs. Previously, he served as VP of client services at Affinitive.

“The media environment is changing rapidly, in particular, the pay-TV ecosystem.

Patrick will be a strong contributor in this on-going transformation,” said Schwimmer in a statement.
