APCO bolsters its Middle-East team

APCO has nabbed Tom Allison from Hill & Knowlton to strengthen its business in the Middle East as director of strategic comms.

APCO UK MD Simon Miller said Allison's brief was to 'help integrate the relationship' with the company's strategic partner in the region, Talal Abu-Ghazaleh.

He will also manage Borouge – a joint venture between Danish plastics company Borealis and the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company – described by Miller as a 'significant international account'. In addition he will be expected to provide media relations counsel for a raft of clients.

Allison will be based in London and report to Miller. He will also work closely with Cleopatra van de Winkel, APCO's regional director of strategic comms EMEA. At H&K he was senior associate director in the agency's corporate division. He was previously a director in the financial division of The Communication Group.
