Arnaud Pochebonne, who headed Weber Shandwick's Paris office and served as executive VP for EMEA, has jumped to APCO Worldwide's outpost in France's capital.

In his more than 20-year PR run, Pochebonne was senior consultant at Burson-Marsteller focused on crisis & PA, and staffer at Tilder Assocs.

He began his career at the business intelligence department of the Secrétariat Général de la Défense Nationale, which is part of the prime minister office.

Brad Staples, APCO CEO, said Pochebone's "experience at the highest level of c-suite for public and private organizations made him a long sought-after partner."

Claire Boussagol chairs APCO Europe.
