Shea, who joined Bowne in 1998, was named Chairman and CEO in January 2007. During the next four years, he led the company through a transformative process that included implementing new market strategies, streamlining operations through the divestiture of non-core assets, introducing new products, forging new joint ventures, enhancing liquidity and completing a number of strategic acquisitions.  In November 2010, he oversaw the sale of Bowne to RR Donnelley, generating a 67% premium for shareholders. Shea currently serves on the board of privately held Document Technologies, Inc., a technology services company owned by the New York private equity firm Harvest Partners LP.

With the addition of Shea, the LoJack Board of Directors will consist of nine members, including seven independent directors.   

"Dave is a highly accomplished leader who brings to our Board both strategic vision and a track record of significant operating results achieved over more than 30 years in the technology services industry," said LoJack Chairman Rory Cowan. "In leading the Board at Bowne, he demonstrated not only a commitment to corporate governance but also overwhelming success in translating strategy into value for the company's shareholders."

Commenting on his appointment, Shea said, "This is an exciting time for LoJack, as the Company focuses on expanding its leading position in stolen vehicle recovery to a broad range of best-in-class products and services for the 'connected car' market. LoJack is the preeminent global brand for safety, security and protection. I look forward to working with the board and management team to help lead the Company to a bright and profitable future."

Shea joined Bowne as Executive Vice President of Business Development and Strategic Technology, and later became Senior Vice President and CEO for Bowne Business Solutions and Bowne Enterprise Solutions. He served as President and Chief Operating Officer of Bowne & Company from August 2004 to January 2007 before being promoted to lead the company as Chairman and CEO.

He began his career at IBM Corporation in 1977, serving in a variety of roles including sales, sales management, consulting and general management.   

Shea is a graduate of Fordham University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing.
