Moving within the DDB network, Antes joins from DDB Germany, where she held the role of Chief Marketing & Growth Officer since May 2021, with a remit to promote integration among DDB offices and clients around the country.

Commenting on her new role, Antes said: “Working within DDB has given me so many opportunities and I am very excited to join the adam&eveDDB family to help establish adam&eveBERLIN in Germany. 

“The first time I met with Jens and Philip, I could tell we were united in our ambition and I can’t wait to unleash this power for our clients.”

Before joining DDB, Christina worked at Serviceplan, Europe’s biggest independent agency group, where she rose quickly through the ranks, becoming Managing Director after only 10 years at the agency. 

Two years later she was promoted to Partner in 2018.

In 2015, she founded the agency’s independent Campaign X unit, which quickly won lead agency status on BMW’s MINI in Germany and grew to become one of the most creative and most awarded integrated agencies in the Serviceplan group.

During her career, Antes has worked with key national and international accounts, including Allianz, ABOUT YOU, BMW, HEINZ, MINI, mymüsli, Ottonova, Ooredoo, Pedigree, Sky, Strellson, Taxfix, and ZDF. She is a board member at GWA (German Advertising Agencies Association).
