Company director and former Citigroup corporate and investment banking MD Chris Knoblanche has been appointed Chairman of iSelect, effective from July 1.

He replaces the comparison website’s co-founder Damien Waller, who will remain on the board as a non-executive director.

Mr Knoblanche currently serves on the boards of pet healthcare company Greencross, GE Capital Australia and Aussie Home Loans.

He is also on the advisory board of Norton Rose Fulbright Lawyers. He has previously served as a partner in merchant bank Caliburn (now Greenhill Investment Bank), regional MD of Deloitte Management Solutions Asia and CEO of Andersen Business Consulting Asia-Pacific.

Mr Knoblanche says iSelect is in line for further growth in the Australian comparison market.

“A diverse range of opportunities lies ahead of this innovative and exciting business, and I am looking forward to making a positive contribution at the board [level] and working with iSelect’s CEO Alex Stevens and his management team,” he said.
