Just days after Al Kelly became CCO of Euro RSCG New York (yeah, I know we had issues with that one…our apologies), the Havas-owned network’s Chicago office announced that Jason Peterson (right) is now chief creative officer at its Chicago office. Peterson takes over for Blake Ebel, who left a few months back. As for Ebel’s former partner-in-crime, Steffan Postaer, he’ll remain on as chairman after leading creative for six years at the agency.
Meanwhile, Peterson served as ECD at Translation prior and perhaps more notably, was a creative director and founding partner at Berlin Cameron and Partners. During his career, he’s spent time in creative roles at Fallon and Berlin Wright Cameron where he developed creative for accounts such as the NBA, Nikon, Volkswagen and MTV.
