uSwitch Switches to 3 Monkeys Communications

uSwitch.com, the independent price comparison and switching service, has appointed 3 Monkeys to handle PR for its energy proposition, following a five way pitch.

uSwitch.com – which saved UK consumers over £112m on their energy bills in 2014 – also helps households get a better deal on home phone, broadband, digital television, mobile phones and personal finance products including mortgages, credit cards, current accounts and insurance. The company was founded in 2000 and was recently acquired by Zoopla Property Group.

Commenting on the appointment, Charlotte Nunes, Head of PR at uSwitch.com, said:

“3 Monkeys really impressed us with their strategic insight into our audience, as well as a fresh approach to boosting consumer engagement in the energy market, which is so vital right now. We are looking forward to working with them on creative campaigns that build on our consumer champion brand values and encourage more people to reduce their energy bills.”

Angie Moxham, Chief Monkey, added:

“uSwitch.com has carved out a credible position in a highly competitive market as the brand that lobbies for consumers rights as well as offering easy access to better deals. We are very impressed with their track record and ambitions and are looking forward to partnering with them to drive the business and brand forward.”
