On the 4th July, APCO Worldwide, which offers consultancy services in public affairs and strategic communication and has had a presence in France since 1996, announced the opening of a new office in Lyon.



This regional location confirms the group’s desire to support actors (companies, professional associations, NGOs, etc.) in the Rhône-Alpes region as well as subsidiaries of international groups which face national and international challenges in terms of public affairs and communication.

We support companies based in Lyon and beyond and facilitate their relations with their political, media and societal environment. Lyon is today a recognised player in the international economy in terms of the health sector, as well as other sectors, and it is therefore essential that we consolidate our presence there”. Anne-Kuentz Lafourcade, Director of Consultancy at APCO Worldwide France.

In their 30 years of experience, APCO Worldwide has spread around the world, opening 35 offices based in the world’s main economic, political and media capitals across all continents (Asia, America, Europe, Middle-East, Africa).

Today, the international group is showing the ambition to develop its growth in France and become one of the key players in its sectors of excellence: public affairs, corporate communication and crisis communication.

With 30 staff members in France today, we have noted that our methodologies and the international integration of our teams satisfy more and more French clients” Edward Walsh, General Manager of APCO Worldwide Europe.”
