— UW-Whitewater’s impact on the local economy is more than $407 million, according to a study from the university.

The study, authored by economics professor Russ Kashian, found that includes payroll, investments in buildings and spending from people on campus. That’s not counting the almost $18 million it contributes in tax revenues each year for the state.

“This is a strong report that emphasizes what many of us have believed for a long time,” said ” said Jeffery Knight, president and CEO of the Greater Whitewater Committee and chair of Knight Public Affairs. “This university does an amazing job of educating our young adults into tomorrow’s leaders, but has a profound economic impact on the city of Whitewater and its diverse business makeup.”

— Staffers at the Madison marketing firm Hiebing say they’re proud to be part of the “ongoing legacy” of founding president Roman Hiebing, who died last week.

Hiebing founded the firm in 1981 after working with clients such as Kellogg’s and United Airlines at Leo Burnett. Hiebing was also an author, taught at UW-Madison’s School of Business and won the silver award from the American Advertising Federation, one of the top honors in the field.

“We’re so proud to be a part of Roman’s ongoing legacy. He was a visionary leader who shaped the culture of our agency in every way possible when he founded it 35 years ago,” Hiebing president Dave Florin said. “His passion to positively impact businesses through his gifts as a marketer was inspiring from the start.”
