CCO Daniel Simon

Creative Leader

Daniel has been on the Aperto board of directors as CCO since 2014. As creative strategist and transformer he is responsible for the brand, communication and creation spheres. The father of three daughters perfected his competencies as a founder of several agencies, among them the creative agency PLANTAGE BERLIN in 2001 – that has belonged to the Aperto group since 2009. In 2006 he started a strategy agency in Berlin and Beijing that has merged into the Aperto brand. Before his time as agency manager, he was a bassist and composer in a successful band signed to the EMI label. Daniel’s firm belief that innovative ideas come only when one combines receptive people and a stimulating environment, has formed the cornerstone of the Aperto brand and provided an image that unites creatives over all spheres of the agency. It makes sense that the Aperto band was his idea in the first place!

A brilliant idea is always a new combination of existing ideas. A brilliant agency is one that enables those ideas.
