Meakin takes on Nexus board role

The former MD of Cairns & Associates Jon Meakin has re-emerged as a director at Nexus Communications, which is seeking to expand its work with consumer brands.

Meakin will work on the Cadbury Trebor Bassett trade and First Milk dairy co-operative accounts, as well as on new business, alongside creative and planning director Alan Twigg.

He reports to CEO Jim Horsley in the newly created role. The consumer team is 28-strong, accounting for around half the agency.

Meakin joined Cairns in February 2005 from The Communication Group, where he was consumer MD for five years. He quit TCG two weeks after promotion to the board (PRWeek, 19 November 2004), and left Cairns after just eight months (PRWeek, 3 November 2005).
