London – 28 February 2024: Camarco, the financial and corporate communications consultancy owned by APCO, launched a technology sector team headed up by Senior Director Marc Cohen, supported by Associate Director Gabriel Hedengren.

Additionally, artificial intelligence and tech specialist Gordon Mackay joined APCO as a senior director in London.

“It is with great pleasure that I welcome Marc, Gabriel and Gordon to Camarco and APCO,” Camarco CEO and Chairman of APCO in the UK Geoffrey Pelham-Lane said. “They bring great expertise in the technology and life sciences sector, an area of strategic importance for our business. APCO already advises some of the largest technology companies in the world and now we are able to both attract significant new client relationships as well as better supporting APCO’s existing clients in the sector with a full range of global communications services.”

Cohen has 20 years of experience advising both public and private technology companies in his years at the PR Office (PRO), Kreab Gavin Anderson, FTI Consulting, Financial Dynamics and Bankside Consultants. Hedengren has 7 years of sector experience having worked with Cohen at PRO and before that at FINN Partners. Mackay brings over two decades of policy experience from both government and the private sector, garnered through various roles at international consultancies, in government and the United Nations.

Cohen and Hedengren will focus on supporting deeptech and life sciences companies, as well as VCs, from early stage and scale up all the way through to IPO and beyond. Mackay will work at the intersection of tech policy, sustainability and multilateral organisations providing strategic multilateral policy advisory support to major tech industry firms.

Camarco has grown from inception 10 years ago to one of London’s leading corporate and financial communications consultancies with 50+ staff and a strong reputation in the market.
