Ryan Cotton, Head of Marketing at Thomas Cook, said: “Having launched our business at a time of heightened travel restrictions, we are now preparing for our first brand campaign that will help us to put the new Thomas Cook on the map. McCann Birmingham impressed us with their strategic thinking, creativity with impact and their understanding of the challenges faced by the travel industry right now.”

McCann Birmingham’s Executive Creative Director, Adam Bodfish, said: “Working with a much-loved brand such as Thomas Cook presents a wonderful opportunity to put Thomas Cook back into the hearts and minds of the British public, so this is a dream win for McCann Birmingham.”
