Production Manager, Creative Services
Jim Maurer joined the University of the Arts 10 years ago with 15 prior years of experience in the printing and advertising industries. He previously worked at BPM Printing, Reimel Carter Advertising and the Brownstein Group.
Learning the print industry from the ground up, Jim started out running a two-color press and helped out in the bindery. He eventually moved into estimating print jobs and ordering paper. After about five years, he decided to make the move into advertising, where he was responsible for estimating internal creative time on all print, radio and TV/video production.
Jim graduated from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts with a certificate in Painting. When time allows, he loves to get out and paint landscapes.
He lives in Burlington, N.J., and has a 12-year-old son who aspires to be the next Tony Hawk.
