全球 – 安可顾问(APCO Worldwide) 日前宣布任命Brad Staples(左一)从明年1月起开始担任全球首席执行官,他目前担任国际部总裁。

公司的创始人兼现任CEO Margery Kraus(左二)将转任公司的执行董事长;创始人之子 Evan Kraus(左三)将成为公司的总裁以及运营董事总经理。 Neal Cohen(右一)将成为副董事长,并且兼任全球客户策略总裁。

“As we celebrate the close of our 30th year, I wanted to make sure we had a plan in place that created certainty for the company as we look forward to our 4th decade,” said Margery Kraus. “Today’s announcement is a seamless evolution of the leadership of our firm designed to drive stronger global collaboration, deeper relationships with clients and more compelling, creative programming that delivers greater impact for clients and their stakeholders while empowering a new generation of the firm’s leaders.”

“I am honored to lead APCO forward into this exciting, new chapter for our company, our employees and our clients around the globe. Margery has provided extraordinary leadership over the past 30 years, building APCO from a single employee into an industry-leading, global enterprise,” Staples said. “Our common culture and integrated approach to client service has always been a key differentiator for us. While our offer and our ideas will continue to evolve, we remain absolutely committed to deploying our best resources across the firm to solve our clients’ most complex challenges.”

This new generation of leadership for the firm reinforces the company’s commitment to the changing global nature of business and communications and a shift in corporate interests to new, international markets. It also capitalizes on Staples’ nearly two decades of experience building and leading APCO’s international operations.

Evan Kraus’ new role expands on his 18 years of experience at APCO creating and strengthening the company’s digital and creative offer. While assuming more operational responsibility for the firm, his experience will assure the firm’s commitment to bringing the best analytics, digital, ideas and creative to its long-standing heritage of public affairs, issues, and corporate brand and reputation.

Cohen’s experience as one of the most senior client strategists at the firm will be a critical component to the firm’s goal of remaining a trusted client partner. As vice chairman of the board, Cohen’s leadership will be invaluable in infusing knowledge of the marketplace and the clients into board decision-making.

Staples will be based in London and Evan Kraus and Neal Cohen will continue to be based in Washington, D.C.

“Brad, Evan and Neal represent the very best of APCO – deep global perspectives, understanding of the changing communications landscape and commitment to providing the very best thinking to our clients,” said Margery Kraus. “They have helped build APCO into the company it is today, and I am convinced these changes and the decisions that will follow will set a very exciting and positive course for our future.”

“I am looking forward to collaborating with Brad on this next phase of our growth,” said Evan Kraus. “I am also thrilled we can build on Neal’s 28 years at APCO, where he managed the global operations and advised many of our major clients. His experience will continue to be invaluable as we take the firm to the next level.”
