PR's Jim Shea Completes 44-Year Career
James G. Shea has retired after more than a quarter of a century as head of Southern Pacific's public relations activities.
Shea, who has been vice president-public relations of both Southern Pacific Company and its subsidiary, the SP Transportation Company since 1973, wrapped up his 44-year career on September 30.
Shea joined SP at Los Angeles in 1937 and rose through various sales and public contact assignments at Palm Springs, San Diego and other Southern California cities. In 1950, he was appointed public relations director for the Pacific Electric Railway Company, the former Southern Pacific subsidiary in Los Angeles.
In 1955, he moved to San Francisco as general public relations manager and in 1973 became vice president-public relations, with responsibility for public, press and community relations.
Shea, a native of Los Angeles, is a second-generation railroader. His father, Daniel J. Shea, Sr., served as a locomotive engineer on the Los Angeles Division and retired with 42 years of service.
He is Secretary of the Board of Regents of the University of Santa Clara. He has been the national president of the Railroad Public Relations Association and a regional vice president and national director of the Public Relations Society of America.
