“Working with the ambitious team at Eurostar and our friends at DDB Paris makes it all the more satisfying.”

Xavier Mendiola, Managing Director at DDB Paris, said: “Winning Eurostar is the beautiful result of the partnership between adam&eveDDB & DDB Paris, supported by our teams in all Eurostar key markets. We look forward to expanding the Eurostar horizons together.”
