"Ted" Bauer — co-founder of Houston's AIM Management Group, which merged with Invesco in 1997 — gave $40 million to the University of Houston's College of Business Administration, which now bears his name. Cemo Hall is named for UH alumnus Michael J. Cemo, former president and CEO of AIM Distributors, Inc.
"We could not be happier to host this event with Invesco," said Bauer Dean Latha Ramchand.
