"In The Royals we have found a long-term, genuine partner to help us completely reset our brand perception in the mind of Australians and establish iSelect as the go-to destination for Australians to take care of all their boring but important life admin."

Says Steve O'Farrell, managing partner, The Royals: "iSelect are a passionate bunch of people that are steadfastly focused on making a difference in people's lives and doing well-integrated, effective work. The Royals share this passion and are thrilled to be partnering with iSelect in their quest to disrupt the face of the service industry in Australia."

The Royals' appointment is effective immediately.

The Royals - they sold you on the big bold vision. Problem is they can't execute it, they can't even come close to executing it. You're in for some real pain with this one. Just check out the latest iSelect crap on air thanks to the forever eager-beavers at CHE...

I don’t know what you are all moaning about - I thought we did some great ads for iselect back in the day. Bad workman. Tools. Blame and all that. Make it magic again you lovely baldies at Royals, don’t listen to the previous two fallen agencies and their bitter agendas above.

Well done said:

We pitched. We lost. Well done Royals.
