Thompson Coburn Chair Tom Minogue will receive the highest honor for a C-Suite executive in the St. Louis Business Journal’s inaugural C-Suite Awards. Tom and 13 other executives from the St. Louis region’s largest public and private companies and community nonprofits will be honored at a December 5 banquet at the Hilton at the Ballpark.
Tom will receive the Legacy Award for his 20 years of leadership as Chair of Thompson Coburn and his decades of service to some of St. Louis’ largest civic and charitable organizations.
During Tom’s tenure, Thompson Coburn became the largest firm in St. Louis and forged a national presence, opening new offices in Chicago and Los Angeles and expanding in Washington, D.C. Revenues have quintupled, from $40 million to over $200 million, and total attorneys have grown to over 375 and total employment to almost 750. True to the Firm’s values and commitment to its people, the Firm did not lay off a single person, neither an attorney nor a staff member, during the 2008 economic downturn. Recognizing that diversity is a central component of a successful business enterprise, Thompson Coburn led the development of innovative, award-winning diversity programs that directly address the Big Law diversity gap and provide significant opportunities for underrepresented attorneys and law students.
A native St. Louisan, Tom has drawn on his business experience and deep community connections to help a host of civic and charitable endeavors grow across the region. He currently sits on 11 different civic and charitable boards supporting education, health care, the arts, youth activities and economic development. Here are remarks leaders of some of those organizations shared with the St. Louis Business Journal:
