We have a great relationship with Apple, having been fortunate enough to have our apps promoted on the App Store on numerous occasions.
If there is a possibility of getting a promotion we will do everything possible to make it happen.
Should the client wish we can advise on creating a developer account for them to publish under their brand, or we can publish the app directly on their behalf.
