WASHINGTON, D.C.— Professor Itamar Rabinovich, former Israeli ambassador to the United States, has joined the international advisory council at APCO Worldwide. He brings extensive global knowledge and will work closely with APCO’s on-the-ground experts to counsel clients seeking access to developing markets.
Rabinovich recently concluded a second term as president of Tel Aviv University. He is an expert on modern Middle Eastern history, and in addition to his significant administrative and fiduciary responsibilities at the university, he served as a senior research fellow at TAU’s Moshe Dayan Center for Middle Eastern and African Studies and an incumbent of the Yona and Dina Ettinger Chair in Contemporary History of the Middle East.
Before Rabinovich began his presidency at TAU, he was Israel’s chief negotiator with Syria under the Yitzhak Rabin government. He also served as Israel’s Ambassador in Washington, D.C., during the critical period from 1993 to 1996.
