Margery Kraus: Power List 2011

Founder and CEO, APCO Worldwide

A clutch of agencies have bought themselves out of their holding companies in the past year and each one mentions what Margery Kraus has done at APCO since she extricated herself from Grey Global in 2004 as the template they aspire to.

Since regaining independence for the firm she cofounded, Kraus has grown APCO from about 350 to more than 550 staffers, with commensurate revenue hikes as well.
