Margery Kraus founded APCO Associates in 1984 as a subsidiary to Arnold & Porter, one of Washington’s largest law firms, and from where APCO’s name is derived. Grey Global Group,(a subsidiary of the Martin Sorrel owned WPP) a New York-based global advertising and marketing agency, purchased majority ownership of APCO in 1991 from Arnold & Porter.Martin Sorrel is Jewish and an important part of the International Jew crowd
On September 28, 2004, APCO announced its independent buyout from Grey Global and has thus become one of the largest privately owned public relations firms in the world. The firm has been described by Public Relations media outlet Everything-PR as ” one of the world’s most powerful PR firms.
Just a month after the “independent buyout” APCO entered into a tie up with Kissinger Associates a “strategic consulting company” founded by Henry Kissinger another of those mysterious Jewish advisors whose incredible rise to power surprises all but the Jewish cabal who know exactly what happened

Here’s the Shin Bet connection to APCO
It starts here, with a fomer member of APCO’s International Advisory Board, a man named Doron Bergerbest-Eilon:
Doron Bergerbest-Eilon is the former head of the protection and security division and the senior ranking security official of the Israeli Security Agency (ISA), a position equivalent to the rank of major general. Mr. Bergerbest-Eilon is the founder, president and CEO of ASERO Worldwide, where he advises clients on strategic and tactical security challenges and provides assistance to both governments and corporations to prepare, mitigate and recover from threats of terrorism and other hazards; and to protect lives and critical assets and ensure continuity of operations.

Apco’s involvement in various intelligence and security-related projects is done through its strategic partner and sister company Asero Worldwide.
While Apco’s expertise is in the field of communications, Asero specializes in homeland security and risk management consultancy.
In ASERO’s own words
Apco and Asero have many overlapping consultants and management members. For example, Doron Bergerbest–Eilon who used to be on Apco’s International Advisory Council was also founder and president of Asero Worldwide.
Mara Hedgecoth, the daughter of APCO CEO and President Margery Kraus also sits in Asero as Vice President. At the same time, Mara Hedgecoth also serves as Vice President and Director in APCO Worldwide.

How an American lobbying company Apco Worldwide markets Narendra Modi to the world
In 2006, an American lobby called Apco Worldwide, which doubles in public relations and boasts clients ranging from dictators to global investment banks, stepped into India. Uncharacteristically for one of the most muscular business lobby groups in Washington, it was a quiet entry. So it was not until three years later that Apco’s business in India really came into its own.
Apco muscled out a raft of PR companies, including the now defunct Vaishnavi Communications of controversial lobbyist Niira Radia, to win the contract to promote Vibrant Gujarat, the showpiece investment meeting of chief minister Narendra Modi that often sees dizzy pledges to do business and lavishes praise on Modi’s administration.
For a company not averse to serving controversial clients on controversial issues – supporting unpopular reforms or opposing popular regulations – and consequently locking horns with their opponents, Apco is coy about its association with Modi. On paper, Apco works for the Industrial Extension Bureau (iNDEXTb), the Gujarat government’s nodal agency for investments. But for all purposes, it is identified as the public relations manager of the Gujarat chief minister.
In an article published by The New York Times on February 8, 2011, an Apco executive named Steven King responded on behalf of Modi about the “lingering controversies” in Gujarat, a reference to the riots of 2002 and the aftermath. Journalists of foreign media outlets that ET Magazine spoke to say it is Apco that they approach with requests to interview Modi.
What exactly did a firm linked to Kissinger . Martin Sorrl and Israels domestic agency do for Modi?
Was the India against Corruption Movement which was supposedly the brainchild of Ajit Doval and which was greatly responsible for Modis rise really APCO’s idea? Did APCO help “implement” it?
What role did the Shin Bet linked firm play in India’s politics and what did Modi and the BJP give it in return?
WHAT QUID PRO QUO DID SHIN BET GET FROM MODI?
