ACD Dan Peters Leaves SapientNitro for AKQA

By Patrick Coffee 

akqaA quick update to our post last week on ECD John Carstens’ departure from SapientNitro Chicago: it seems that ACD Dan Peters left the agency at approximately the same time.

Following a West Coast relocation, Peters now fills the same role at AKQA San Francisco.

While the agency has yet to comment, Peters’ LinkedIn page has him leaving Sapient earlier this month after serving as ACD for two and a half years and working on campaigns for clients Harley Davidson, McDonald’s, Dodge and others.


We know him primarily for sending us pics of Sapient’s then-new Chicago digs back in August 2012. We also note that his departure follows that of fellow ACD Jordan Polonsky, who now serves as creative director at Chicago-based mobile app development company Eight Bit Studios.

Updates when we get them.
