Chief Executive Officer & Managing Partner
As CEO of RW Jones, Sean is our senior-most public relations counselor. During his two-decade career, he has played an integral role in counseling clients and helping them to implement full-scale strategic communications programs and issues management initiatives. With a lifelong passion for education, Sean works closely with presidents and executive leaders to think strategically about their institutions and their role in both shaping their institutional narratives and contributing to the public discourse in a meaningful way.
Prior to joining RW Jones, Sean led the crisis and media relations practice at one of Los Angeles’ largest and oldest PR and public affairs firms. In this role, he connected clients’ PR and political strategies in ways that supported their sometimes-disparate demands.
Sean received his master’s in PR from the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School for Communication and his BA in politics and history from Occidental College.
When not advising clients on communication opportunities and challenges, Sean enjoys spending time with his wife, Michelle; their son, Ryker; their daughter, Teagan; and their dog, Winston.
