APCO Worldwide is revamping their leadership team in India, appointing Rahul Sharma as managing director and Yash Kansal as deputy managing director.

APCO opened the New Delhi office in 2006, and the team currently has over 38 consultants.

“As an economic powerhouse and the world’s largest democracy, India is a critical region for our clients,” said CEO Brad Staples. “We take great pride in our history and the proven track record of our teams in India. Rahul’s unparalleled experience, working in a variety of sectors across India and Asia, is a valuable addition that further bolsters our expertise. We are delighted to welcome Rahul to APCO and are excited to see our on-the-ground teams continue to innovate and grow under his and Yash’s leadership.”

“I’m honored to take on the role of managing director,” said former journalist Sharma. “I look forward to working with our talented colleagues across the globe, and specifically in New Delhi and Mumbai, to continue to innovate, experiment and deliver at the highest possible level for our clients.”
