APCO Worldwide has named Prashanth Rajan, a State Dept. veteran, as director in its public affairs practice.
Rajan, who did tours of duty of India and Pakistan during his seven years of foreign service officer experience, focused on crisis communications, political risk analysis and immigration policy.
Most recently, Rajan worked at KPMG Consulting, advising clients on strategy, crisis management, workforce planning and corporate transformation.
Evan Kraus, APCO global president, expects clients will benefit from Rajan’s ability to “develop strategies to cope with the most difficult geopolitical and business challenges.”
