Byron Marlowe

In memory of Professor Byron Marlowe

Byron Marlowe joined the Carson College of Business hospitality faculty at WSU Tri-Cities in 2015 and became the director of the wine and beverage business management program. Professor Marlowe went out of his way to create mentorship and career connections for students in business, wine business and other related industries. Many students describe him as an exceptional mentor and the reason why they got their dream job.

Professor Marlowe was named a Don Smith Distinguished Professor in 2020, which supports a faculty member who embodies Smith’s spirit – an outstanding teacher, strong mentor and accomplished industry professional. In spring 2020, he taught and performed research on customer experience in tasting rooms in Austria through the Fulbright Program. Read more about Byron Marlowe’s legacy…
