(Albuquerque, NM) The athletic program at the University of New Mexico is a $30 million business operation. On Tuesday, July 9, the Business to Business Breakfast Series at the Anderson School of Management presents Paul Krebs, Vice-President of Athletics at UNM, for an inside look into collegiate athletics at UNM and around the county.

Paul Krebs
Krebs will discuss his diverse strategic plan intended to make UNM a major player in the challenging and competitive world of intercollegiate athletics. He will also give details on how his plan meets the challenge of generating an ever-increasing flow of revenues to cope with cost escalations that are driven by national trends, largely outside his control and in the face of rigorous NCAA compliance.

Krebs is in his seventh year at the University of New Mexico. During his time at UNM he has achieved a Top 25 ranking for his overall program, student athlete grade point averages and graduation rates now exceed those of the general student body, and he has set the pace for many national programs. Other significant accomplishments by Paul Krebs include: an overhaul of UNM’s South Campus facilities, a $60 million renovation to The Pit, a $7 million indoor practice facility, and renovations to the End Zone Club at University Stadium. Krebs also recently hired basketball coach Craig Neal, football coach Bob Davie, and women’s basketball coach Yvonne Sanchez, among many others.

A native of Canfield, Ohio, Krebs has a bachelor’s degree in Business from Bowling Green State University and a master’s degree in Athletic Administration from Ohio State.

The UNM Anderson Business to Business Breakfast Series is sponsored by George and Sibilla Boerigter and SoundOff Signal. The lecture series hosts business leaders from across the country to speak on topics of current interest and is offered at no cost to the business community.

Paul Krebs presentation on July 9 will be held in the Jackson Student Center on the UNM Campus beginning at 7:30 a.m. and a light breakfast will be served. The public is invited to attend but RSVPs are required. To register go to www.mgt.unm.edu/events/B2B or contact Sara Lucero at 505-277-6413.
