Following a strong new business run over the past 12 months, The Royals has expanded its creative leadership team with the appointment of Sebastian Vizor in the newly created role of Deputy ECD. For the past two years, Sebastian was Creative Director at B-Reel London
With over a decade in the industry, across London, Sydney and Amsterdam, Vizor has worked with the likes of 72&Sunny, Sid Lee, R/GA, and Clemenger BBDO; helping create integrated solutions and brand platforms for the likes of GE, Netflix and Google.
Vizor’s work has been recognised at all major international award shows but his best attribute is his passion. A big believer in the power of mentorship, he has taken an active role in mentoring AWARD School students and lecturing at Miami Ad School.
Relocating back to Australia from London, Vizor will be based in Sydney and work across both the Melbourne and Sydney offices of The Royals.
His appointment comes after a strong 12 months for the agency, during which it added 18 new clients, including Athena Home Loans, Northern Territory Government, Spotify, Australian Super and Bakers Delight. At the same time, The Royals experienced a 37% increase in headcount and grew its CX offering into a department of 18 people.
Says The Royals Creative Partner Nick Cummins: “I’m really excited that after eight years of building our agency we now are attracting talent of this calibre. Sebastian comes to us with experience from some of the best agencies around the world and I am excited to see what great things we will be able to achieve together in this next chapter for The Royals.”
Says Vizor: “I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to work at The Royals. With its fresh perspective, a great set of clients and super-ambitious leadership team, they are definitely hitting their stride. It’s an immense privilege to be part of the team and I’m thrilled to get stuck in.”
