WASHINGTON: APCO Worldwide has hired Zoe Thorogood, a former adviser to UK Prime Minister David Cameron during his most recent reelection campaign, as a director in the public affairs practice of its Washington, DC, office.

She was previously a campaign press adviser to Cameron during his successful 2015 reelection campaign. Thorogood has also served as a political special adviser to Eric Pickles, UK secretary of state for the Department of Communities and Local Government, leading comms strategy for policy areas such as housing and planning, local government, fire, integration, and faith relations.
