Kanareck resigned from FH in November after four years at the agency. He joined in 2010 from eBay, where he was European comms director.

Kanareck has taken up a new role as chief comms officer at Ovo Energy – one of the UK's fastest growing power suppliers. Last year, former US vice-president Al Gore invested £8m into the company as it prepares to float later this year.

Ovo was launched in 2009 to take on the Big Six energy companies.
