New UW-W business school building to be named after alum

(Published Oct. 31, 2006, 12:38 p.m.)

The new College of Business and Economics building on the UW-Whitewater campus will be named "Timothy J. Hyland Hall."

The naming of the building was announced Friday, Oct. 27, at a celebration for the completion of the fundraising for the $41 million building project. More than $5.7 million in private funds was raised for the project, which will begin in spring 2007. The UW System Board of Regents approved the naming at its August meeting.

Hyland, 46, a 1982 graduate of the College of Business and Economics, and his wife Natalie made a significant commitment to the building project earning them the right to name the building.

"It feels great being in the position to give back to the college where it all started," Hyland said, "The building's naming is not an award for any personal or professional achievements - because there would be many alumni, educators and administrators more worthy than I. Instead, it recognizes that Natalie and I heard the need and were blessed to be able to respond in a significant way.

"Tim and Natalie Hyland have made an extremely generous gift to UW-Whitewater's College of Business and Economics," Chancellor Martha Saunders said. "Hyland Hall will be the signature building of our campus and I am so pleased that it recognizes an alumnus who has accomplished so much and who remains connected to our campus."

A Wisconsin native who grew up in Sturgeon Bay, Hyland began his professional career with the accounting firm of Deloitte Haskins and Sells in the audit department of their Phoenix office. In 1989, Hyland joined the health-care management and consulting firm of Schaller Anderson, Inc. and in 2004 he retired from his role as senior vice president for business development, mergers and acquisitions after having served several years as its chief financial officer.

He currently owns Hyland Real Estate Investment Group and continues to be actively involved in real estate and angel investing.

A past national president of Pi Sigma Epsilon, Hyland remains active in the marketing organization and chairs the Pi Sigma Epsilon National Educational Foundation. He served on the coordinating committee for UW-Whitewater Foundation's fundraising efforts for the new building. He is also a member of the finance council at his local church.

Tim and Natalie Hyland live in Scottsdale with their son John.
