Tom StandishIn recognition of his meritorious service to the Cameron School of Business and the University of St. Thomas and his significant contributions to business and the community, Tom Standish, executive vice president at CenterPoint Energy, was presented the CSB Distinguished Alumnus Award.

“The Cameron School of Business continues to graduate outstanding talent that are well prepared to make a lasting mark in all areas of business,” Standish said. “Having been selected from all of these alumni, I am humbled and proud to accept the Distinguished Alumni Award.”

Standish was honored during CSB Alumni Week, but could not attend so Dr. George and Zain Hussain, ’13, a representative of the CSB Alumni Board, met with Standish at CenterPoint Energy to present the award.

Trained as an engineer and moving into a regulatory area of CenterPoint Energy, Standish earned a Master of Business Administration from UST in 1984. The liberal arts and professional curriculum gave him the training he needed to rise through the ranks.

“I am honored to have been chosen as the first recipient of the Distinguished Alumni Award from the Cameron School of Business,” Standish said. “I have often relied on my UST education for the combination of business knowledge and moral and ethical training that is so critical today."
