Timothy P. Cost, a 30-year corporate-affairs and investor-relations veteran with executive experience at several of the world's top health-care companies, today was named global chair, health care, and executive vice president at APCO Worldwide, Margery Kraus, APCO founder and chief executive officer, announced.

Cost served most recently as senior vice president, corporate affairs, for Wyeth, the $22-billion global health-care company recently acquired by Pfizer.

"Tim's appointment marks a significant step in APCO's growth as a leading counselor in the health-care sector," said Kraus. "He has been a leader in health-care communication for decades, and now our clients will gain the value of the depth of his experience and special expertise."

"The landscape has changed, and companies need to be better aligned, faster and more integrated in their marketing, policy and communication than ever before," said Cost. "APCO is well positioned to help senior leadership execute on this challenge."

Cost joins a diverse team of health experts at APCO, including Courtney Piron, head of the firm's health-policy practice and former director in Pfizer’s economic and policy research group; Wayne Pines, former associate commissioner for public affairs at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration; Ken Thorpe, former deputy assistant secretary at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS); Kirsten Thistle, head of the Washington, D.C., health practice and expert on science and risk communication; Bill Pierce, former deputy assistant secretary for public affairs at HHS; and Tresja Bolt, who leads APCO's health-care work in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region.

APCO expects Cost's combination of expertise in public affairs, business and corporate communication to be a major asset for the firm.

"This is a time of change for health-care companies, and Tim's extensive career in health care has given him an unparalleled understanding of the unique challenges and opportunities faced by our clients in this sector," said Robert Schooling, managing director of APCO's Washington, D.C., office. "We are honored to welcome him to APCO and look forward to his leadership."

"We welcome Tim's deep understanding of all ends of the corporate communication spectrum, from strategic counsel to investor relations," said Nelson Fernandez, managing director of APCO's New York office. "We are thrilled to have him as part of our team."

While at Wyeth, Cost had global responsibility for the company's internal and external communication efforts, government affairs, public policy, alliance and advocacy leadership, corporate contributions, crisis management, investor relations and corporate responsibility. Prior to joining Wyeth, he was executive vice president, corporate affairs, at management-services giant ARAMARK. He was a member of the senior management team that led a multi-billion-dollar leveraged buyout, taking the company private in 2007.

Earlier in his career, he served as senior vice president, corporate affairs, at Pharmacia Corporation, a global pharmaceutical company that was acquired by Pfizer in 2003. He also spent six years at Bristol Myers Squibb, leading the company's investor relations and competitive intelligence activities, and was senior vice president, communications and strategy, for biotechnology company Centocor, Inc. (now part of Johnson & Johnson). Cost began his career with Eastman Kodak Company, advancing through positions of increasing responsibility in marketing, strategic planning, communication and investor relations.

Cost is a member of the board of trustees at Jacksonville University in Florida and a charter member of the Senior IR Roundtable. He has served on many boards including the Calloway School of Business at Wake Forest University, CEO Council for Growth and Philadelphia 2016. He was chairman of The Franklin Caucus, chairman of the Philadelphia Leadership Exchange and chairman of the board of the National Investor Relations Institute.
