Pat Schoelen became Vice President of the signage division in 2014 when Graphcom merged with Designs of the Times, where Pat had served as president and owner for the previous 18 years.
He oversees daily operations and sales for Graphcom’s sign division, which includes client meetings, purchasing review, sales estimating, and managing a 15-person signage team. “I love to work with people and help them grow in everything they do,” he says.
Prior to launching Designs of the Times, Pat worked in sales and marketing for Kerley Signs and spent 11 years with Hub Furniture as the operations manager for 26 DC-based stores. He also served as a volunteer paramedic for 12 years in Montgomery County, Md. Today, he serves on his church’s Board of Directors and holds membership with the Frederick Chamber of Commerce and the United States Sign Council.
Pat loves to camp, bike (both pedal and motor), and work outside. He and his wife, Candy, have four children and two grand children, and live on a farm with horses, goats, chickens, dogs, cats, and a mother-in-law!
