Shipping industry communication specialist Neil Jamieson dies

Former journalist with passion for racing tall ships and protecting the scenery of his native Scotland

Industry PR man with clients including International Registries Inc, Lykes Lines and Germanischer Lloyd

NEIL Jamieson, the shipping industry public relations specialist whose clients included International Registries Inc, Lykes Lines and Germanischer Lloyd, has died. He was 92.

Born in 1930 and educated at The Edinburgh Academy, he went to sea in 1947 as a cadet with Glasgow-based City Line. 

From 1952 he worked as a journalist and newspaper editor in Canada before joining the Royal Canadian Navy as a navigating officer on minesweepers, followed by an appointment as public relations officer.

He returned to the UK in 1960, where he continued his career, becoming head of PR in a number of companies, before establishing his own company, Neil Jamieson Associates, in 1978.

In his spare time, he served on the schooner committee of the Sail Training Association, and navigated schooners in five international tall ship races.

In 1984, he founded and ran the Scottish Scenic Trust for the greater protection of Scotland’s scenery and sea lochs. 

His death was announced by his family.
