A building at Marshall University has been renamed in honor of the president and CEO of Intuit.

The former Marshall University Foundation Hall is now the Brad D. Smith Foundation Hall. Smith is a 1986 graduate of Marshall.

The name change was announced Friday in conjunction with the foundation’s annual donor recognition dinner, which celebrates donors with a lifetime giving of more than $100,000 to Marshall University. Foundation CEO Ron Area says Smith has long been a major donor.

The 50-year-old Kenova native has been president of Intuit since 2008. Intuit is a software company that makes Quicken, QuickBooks and Turbo Tax. The company has 8,000 employees worldwide.
