Oliver was founder and joint managing director of Fever – Nelson Bostock’s consumer and social arm – until she stepped down from the position in October.

At Nexus, which operates in health, nutrition and food PR, Oliver will lead "an aggressive new growth strategy" for the agency and launch an integrated consumer comms brand in the autumn.

Oliver will join the board of Nexus, which is chaired by Jonathan Choat, and will help it to acquire businesses that align with the agency’s new growth strategy.

She said of her employer: "Not only does it have an incredibly strong business successfully built up over the past 20 years, it also has significant and commendable ambition to grow and compete through-the-line."

Oliver co-founded Fever in 2010 and worked for Nelson Bostock for eight years, including as a board member. Before this, she was head of consumer brands at Trimedia, now Grayling, for seven years and had a three-year stint as head of media at Larkspur, now Citizen.

Richard Medley, the previous managing director at Nexus Communications, announced that he was stepping down shortly before Christmas, after more than three years in post.

Choat said: "Not only does Frankie have a brilliant track record, she has a compelling future vision of the communications industry that is both exciting and infectious. We need to be much more vivid, and Frankie Oliver is nothing if not vivid."
