Helping companies and individuals manage intense media/marketplace environments


Jackson Street was founded by Andy Shea, a 20-year communications professional with over 15 years of focused reputation management agency experience.

Prior to forming Jackson Street, Andy was a Senior Vice President at Dezenhall Resources, a Washington, DC-based crisis management consultancy. Throughout his career, Andy has advised a diverse mix of companies, industry organizations and high-profile individuals confronting complex adversity within the United States and around the world. Andy has led hundreds of high-stakes initiatives, deploying creative, proactive communications measures for clients under extreme pressure. He has provided catastrophe support for companies in need of rapid response communications services, helping clients manage unanticipated catalysts that spark short-burst media and political interest. Early in his career, Andy was a political research consultant and worked for several news organizations, including the Political HOTLINE, Evans & Novak and CNN’s "Capital Gang" and "Reliable Sources."

To provide best value for clients, Jackson Street maintains strategic alliances with a strong, diverse network of pressure-tested, like-minded specialists -- research providers, social networking resources, political consultants, foreign government strategists, media and government relations advisors, advertising professionals, and others. Unlike agencies that restrict clients to the capabilities of on-site staff to maximize revenue, Jackson Street's allies represent the best-in-class of their respective fields for individual and selective retention as needed, and only when needed.
