Letter - APCO: independent, and impressive in UK

I was surprised to see APCO listed as a member of WPP and paired with GCI in your report on the top 150 consultancies in the UK (21 April).

In fact, APCO Worldwide is the fourth-largest independent global comms consultancy, with 73 per cent ownership by APCO management. It gained independence in 2004.

The real story behind APCO UK during 2005, our first full year as an independent consultancy, is quite phenomenal. Revenues increased by over £500,000 from the previous year to a record £4.3m - a 27 per cent increase on 2003.

Our UK office continued to serve as a leading hub for APCO and added considerable depth and talent to the team, while continuing to grow under MD Simon Miller.
