WASHINGTON, D.C., October 11—The lines between traditional public affairs and lobbying continue to blur, and top professionals are crossing over from one discipline to the other, finding their knowledge of the public policy realm equally valuable in both arenas. The latest example is Stuart Eizenstat, a longtime partner at Washington law firm Covington & Burling, who is joining APCO Worldwide as a senior counselor and a member of the firm’s advisory board.
 
Eizenstat is an expert in international economic policy who held prominent positions in both the Clinton and Carter administrations before become a lobbyist.
 
APCO also announced that Peter Hannaford, a former advisor to President Ronald Reagan and onetime president of his own public affairs firm, and Dick Swett, a former New Hampshire congressman and ambassador to Denmark, have joined the firm’s list of senior consultants.
 
“Our team of senior counselors represents rich and varied backgrounds in politics, business, and international relations,” says agency president Margery Kraus. “We believe it is essential to offer our clients and our staff this level of experience and expertise in the complex and changing world of international business.”
 
In the Clinton administration, Eizenstat served as deputy secretary of the treasury, under secretary of state, under secretary of commerce, and ambassador to the European Union. At Covington & Burling, he was head of the international trade and finance practice. His previous lobbying experience included a stint as partner with the law firm of Powell Goldstein Frazer & Murphy.
