SapientNitro, part of Sapient, has signed an agreement to become the agency of record for First Data Corporation, a global leader in electronic commerce and payment processing.

SapientNitro will now be handling corporate identity and through-the-line advertising for Atlanta-based First Data, including creative, media, and strategy.

Commenting on the development, Larry Drury, Senior Vice President, Global Marketing, First Data, said, “We are thrilled to work with SapientNitro to re-define our brand and build customer awareness. We believe that our vast product portfolio and payments expertise helps drive customer revenue and profitability and look to SapientNitro as a strategic partner to develop a brand platform and comprehensive media strategy to reach our target audience.”
