WASHINGTON, DC—Mark Medish, former senior staff member of the National Security Council during the Clinton administration, is joining APCO Worldwide to run its Global Political Strategies executive advisory service.  Medish will lead a team of senior former government and corporate officials from around the world who have formed a diplomatic corps for global clients, particularly as they do business in challenging markets.

 

Medish will also serve as an executive vice president of APCO Worldwide.

 

Prior to joining APCO, Medish had a public service career that spanned national security, financial policy and international development. He served at the White House as special assistant to President Bill Clinton and NSC senior director for Russian, Ukrainian and Eurasian Affairs. He also served under Robert Rubin and Lawrence Summers as deputy assistant secretary of the Treasury for international affairs, where his regional portfolio covered Central Europe, the newly independent states, the Middle East and South Asia.

 

Before that, he was senior advisor to the administrator of the United Nations Development Program and special assistant to the assistant administrator for Europe and the NIS at the U.S. Agency for International Development.

 

Earlier in his career, Medish was partner in the international law firm of Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld where he co-managed the firm's global strategic advisory group specializing in sovereign debt restructuring and corporate cross-border trade and investment.

 

Medish joins APCO from the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, a global policy think tank with headquarters in Washington, D.C., where he served as vice president.
