Jim Foertsch

Display Engineer/Production Manager*

How do you create lift at Fifteen Degrees?

With 20 years in the digital display industry, I have the experience to handle any sign project, large or small, interior or exterior. My responsibilities include outside sales and survey work, design consultation, project management for all stages of your project or program (I am a certified project manager holding the PMP designation), installation coordinator and supervisor, as well as permit procurement. I have a BS degree in Business Management and owned and managed my own sign company for over 12 years.

How do you create lift outside of Fifteen Degrees?

I love to fish, even though there are many days when I don’t wind up lifting a fish out of the ocean. I’m a volunteer leader for the Boy Scouts – my son is now an Eagle Scout, but that hasn’t stopped me from continuing to go on camping trips.

What brands have you created lift for?

EmblemHealth, Sherwin-Williams Paints, The Heart Institute, North Shore-LIJ, Staten Island University Hospital, Sleepy’s Mattresses, Flushing Bank, Dime Savings Bank, New York Community Bank
