HRTM School Renamed to Honor Fritz Knoebel

January 20, 2012 |


Last quarter, the Daniels College of Business School of Hotel, Restaurant & Tourism Management adopted a new name. Its namesake is Ferdinand “Fritz” Knoebel, who was a prominent player in Denver foodservice distribution industry before his passing in 2005. Ferdinand’s widow, Betty donated $17.5 million to the school in his honor. Their gift (one of the largest in the school’s history) will establish the Knoebel Center for the Study of Aging and continue support of the Fritz Knoebel School of Hospitality Management.
