Heritage client, the Department of Hospitality and Tourism Management (HTM) in the Pamplin College of Business at Virginia Tech announced it will be renamed the Howard Feiertag Department of Hospitality and Tourism Management, in recognition of a generous contribution to the department from hospitality industry icon and longstanding faculty member Howard Feiertag.

In November 2017, Feiertag was honored for his lifetime contributions to hospitality education and practice at a gala held in the DC area, which was planned and managed by Heritage. Over 200 alumni, students, faculty, and hospitality industry leaders were in attendance and many more contributed to a video montage and 50-page memento book filled with anecdotes and words of thanks.

Highly regarded nationally and internationally, the HTM department is ranked No. 2 in the nation and No. 6 worldwide among hospitality and leisure management programs in the 2017 QS World University Rankings.
