Joseph Napolitan has been advising political candidates since 1956 and is believed to be the first person ever to describe himself as “political consultant”.

He has been a personal consultant to nine foreign heads of state, served on the campaign staffs of Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson, and was director of media for Vice-President Hubert H. Humphrey.

Napolitan, founder of AAPC, co-founder of IAPC and honorary member of EAPC, is the author of "The Election Game" and numerous articles and papers on politics. In 1999, Napolitan was chosen by PR Week magazine as „one of the 100 most influential PR people of the 20th Century“, and he also was selected by the Pew Foundation as one of the eight political consultants who have contributed most to establishing and maintaining high standards in this business.
