Resolved Question:

What would be the correct etiquette when announcing that a Football Team owner and his wife will be speaking at an engagement when the wife expects her name to be listed in full including maiden name-married name? Would you say XXXXX XXXXX and his wife Ann Douglas-Smith will be speaking at the luncheon this Friday?

Yes, that is exactly how you would list the names in the announcement.

You may want to say "and his wife/business partner, Ann-XXXXX XXXXX" if she truly is a partner in the business, as this would give her a little more acknowledgement other than just "wife".

But the way you have listed the actual names is exactly how it should be done.
