APCO Worldwide Launches Alumni Program to Strengthen Relationships and Facilitate Connections

by | Nov 30, 2022

The APCO Alumni program—globally-coordinated platform connecting APCO Worldwide alumni with each other and with APCO—launched to nurture the firm’s global alumni community, Founder and Executive Chairman Margery Kraus announced today.

“At our core, we are a people business, and the relationships we establish when working together often stay with us for the rest of our careers and lives,” Kraus stated. “Our alumni have built exceptional careers with some becoming our clients, others joining competitors and many obtaining leadership positions in business, politics and civil society. All of them represent a connection that is part of our network and history at APCO. It is for this reason we wanted to establish this global platform where our alumni can come together to connect, learn and grow as both individuals and within a community.”

By enrolling into the program, alumni will have access to a prestigious community, upcoming alumni events across the world, a platform to share news and developments and opportunities to network within the community, whether it is a chat with a former colleague or exchanging ideas with a business leader.

“I’m thrilled to see this program come to life at APCO and reconnect with our alumni,” APCO Chief Communications & Marketing Officer Mara Hedgecoth said. “It’s so important for us to provide a place for this community to reunite, make new acquaintances and further relationships based on our common experiences at APCO. We anticipate that building and supporting this community will help keep us close with our alumni community and allow us share insights and developments, as well as continue to collaborate with each other in new ways.”

Alumni will be able to enroll in the program at the APCO Alumni Center (alumni.apcoworldwide.com). While this is a new initiative, APCO aims to embed its company culture in day-to-day activities, not only from the corporate level but also across its local teams. The firm hopes to continue expanding its collective network and is working to ensure that there are numerous opportunities for APCO alumni to stay engaged within this community.
