APCO Worldwide's Raleigh office works closely with local companies to manage their reputations and address their local and global challenges. We help solve clients' issues throughout North Carolina and the Southeastern United States, and we help clients understand new markets and expand their approaches when communicating nationally and around the world.

We produce award-winning work for clients in a variety of sectors, including health care, manufacturing and nonprofit, through:

  • corporate communication and reputation management: We regularly help companies manage their reputations by developing messages that are tailored to strategic audiences and aligned to their business objectives. We then develop strategies and tactics best at conveying these messages and growing the bottom line.
  • crisis and litigation communication: During litigation and other crisis situations, we help clients manage the public environment. This includes providing counsel to companies and organizations that are planning for and responding to crises of all kinds, including financial issues, product recalls and regulatory activity.
  • executive positioning: Top leadership and executives are a vital part of enhancing a company's reputation and conveying the corporate position. Effective executive positioning helps establish companies as thought leaders to increase brand awareness.
  • government outreach: We work with clients to predict, understand and formulate strategic responses to complex public policy, regulatory and reputational challenges.
  • marketing communication: We look at the complete environment surrounding a product or service and use proprietary tools for packaging clients' marketing messages with power and prestige.
  • media relations: APCO offers tailored media relations strategies to organizations operating around the world. We provide clients with a 360-degree view of how best to engage media and tackle the most complex media challenges.
  • social media: APCO is unique among its peers in its community-based approach to social media. We help clients identify opinion leaders in a diverse range of influential online communities and build sustainable relationships with those leaders. Those relationships yield tangible results, both online and offline.

From media relations and public affairs to blogger and public relations, we work closely with our offices around the world to bring an integrated strategic approach to implementing programs. We listen to our clients to understand their issues and challenges so we can develop customized strategies to deliver effective results.
