Mr. Dan Kautz is the co-founder and co-owner of K&S Companies, a real estate development and management organization that began in 1986. Prior to working with K&S, Mr. Kautz started, owned, and managed a number of businesses. 

Mr. Kautz graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1982 with a BA in History. He has served in various capacities with multiple non-profit organizations but considers his involvement with both the economics department at UC's Lindner College of Business and the geriatrics program at UC's College of Medicine as particularly meaningful.

My family's deep-rooted connection with UC spans over a century and we hope to be involved for many years to come. At Kautz-Uible, our institute offers an exceptional opportunity to engage with students on their academic journeys at UC and through transformative travel experiences. From captivating destinations like Norway and India, to the New York Federal Reserve and Wall Street, we aspire to broaden their horizons and deepen their understanding of the economic landscape. Through collaboration with the exceptional economists in the UC Lindner College of Business, we collectively strive to enrich the lives of UC economics students and faculty. It’s extremely rewarding to be part of such an effort and I cherish the good friends of all ages I’ve made along the way!
