Business Alumni Couple Featured in LSU Foundation Cornerstone
November 26, 2018
BATON ROUGE - Tom (finance, ’82) and Lisa (accounting ’89; law, ’94) Adamek, longtime philanthropic supporters of the LSU E. J. Ourso College of Business, have made their largest gift to date in support of the Department of Finance and the Office of Business Student Success. The Adameks’ generosity will provide tools for future business leaders to enter careers that suit their talents, interests and values.
A self-proclaimed “numbers guy,” Tom started his career at Bank One of Louisiana (later acquired by Chase Bank) under former LSU Foundation president and CEO and Board of Directors member Lee Griffin, whom Tom considers a mentor. Today, Tom is president of Stonehenge Capital Company LLC, a specialty finance company.
Lisa was a part of the inaugural class of the Center for Internal Auditing, through which she received an internship and, later, a job at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. She returned to earn her JD from the LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center and practiced as a business attorney. She now focuses on her role as a mother, community activist and certified Yoglates instructor.
The Office of Business Student Success offers students comprehensive educational and professional development services, ranging from study abroad programming to career coaching. Through Tom’s engagement with the Dean’s Advisory Council, in addition to their children’s experiences, the Adameks understand the need for OBSS’ services.
