UC College of Business alumnus Georg Rosenbauer, MBA '63, and his wife, Eva, a 1969 UC graduate, were in attendance as officials cut the ribbon to open the exhibition "Cleopatra: The Search for the Last Queen of Egypt" at the Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal on February 18, 2011. The exhibition, which features artifacts uncovered by French underwater archaeologist Franck Goddio, was made possible through the financial support of the Hilti Foundation, which Georg Rosenbauer headed from 1994 to 2006.

Georg and Eva met at UC and eventually married. Georg went on to hold top positions at global corporations, including Pillsbury and RJ Reynolds Tobacco Company, ultimately becoming president and CEO of RJ Reynolds International. In 1984, Georg joined the Hilti Group, holding various positions until becoming president of the Hilti Foundation in 1996. In addition to Goddio's work, the foundation also supports a range of other cultural, social and educational projects.
