Hamilton Receives Distinguished Alumni Award at UMSL

Steve Hamilton, CEO and chairman of CSI Leasing, received the 2022 Distinguished Alumni Award from the University of Missouri-St. Louis (UMSL) at its 31st Annual Founders Celebration.

Throughout Hamilton’s tenure at CSI, he has hired and mentored many UMSL graduates, not just from the St. Louis area, but from all over the world. He also serves on the UMSL College of Business Leadership Council.

“I am honored and humbled to receive this award,” Hamilton said. “UMSL gave me a chance. Without my start there, I probably wouldn’t be anywhere close to where I am today in terms of being successful in the business world. I’ve been with CSI for over 40 years now, and today, the company is largely managed by UMSL graduates. We recognize that UMSL graduates are people we want to employ.”

Hamilton joined CSI in 1983 as a corporate attorney before becoming general counsel. In 1999 he led CSI’s international expansion to Europe, Latin America and Asia until becoming president and COO in 2008. He was named vice chairman and CEO in 2016, then chairman in 2018. Previously Hamilton was an associate with law firm Susman, Schermer, Rimmel & Parker and a clerk to the honorable George F. Gunn, Jr., on the Missouri Court of Appeals.
