We Hear: David R. Mitchell Headed to SapientNitro

It looks like soon-to-be-out Digitas Chicago ECD David R. Mitchell has another gig already lined up. The creative, who we reported yesterday is parting ways with Digitas after 11 years in mid-July, apparently isn’t moving very far as word on the street is that he’s heading over to SapientNitro’s Chicago office. We’re unsure of Mitchell’s start date or title as of yet as the Sapient camp isn’t confirming or denying things (you pretty much know what this means at this point).

Prior to his decade-plus at Digitas, where he led teams on accounts including Miller Lite, Kraft, Harley Davidson and Walgreens, Mitchell served as SVP/ECD at Beyond DDB for nine years. He started his career as a copywriter at McCann Erickson/McCann Direct.
