Jay Solomon, a former chief foreign correspondent at the Wall Street Journal, has joined APCO as a director in its global solutions practice.
Since joining the WSJ in 1998, he’s reported from Jakarta, New Delhi, South Korea and DC on national security and US foreign policy issues.
Solomon broke the story about secret meetings between the Iranians and Americans in Oman in 2012, an effort that resulted in the nuclear deal that Donald Trump just junked.
Most recently, he was a fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, where served as expert on Iran and North Korea’s nuke programs.
Solomon will counsel APCO clients on foreign policy, national security, cybersecurity, media engagement and brand positioning.
