Adam&eveDDB has pipped Wonderhood Studios to the post and won Virgin Media, previously with BBH.

Virgin Media departed DDB London in 2011, which was one of the triggers for Omnicom/DDB buying adam&eve in a £100million deal.

More About Advertsing reports A&E brought in some of its biggest hitters for the pitch, including CSO David Golding who is set to depart the agency with the other remaining founder James Murphy at the end of May.

The new team at A&E headed by joint CEOs Tammy Einav and Matt Goff with CCO Richard Brim.

In  2012 Virgin Media launched its marketing campaign featuring Usain Bolt and Sir Richard Branson.

The TV ad, created by DDB with media planning by Fifty6, featured Bolt sitting in Branson’s office and trying to persuade the public that he is Branson.
