He is undeniably held in high esteem by his colleagues and it is our pleasure to present him with this year’s award.”

He has initiated and spearheaded a number of the company’s charitable and environmental initiatives, including the House of Hope Food Drive, which is a partnership with St. Vincent’s Medical Center that has collected over 22 tons of food for food pantries; and the statewide Aquarion Environmental Champion Awards program, which is celebrating its fifth anniversary in 2015.

Additionally, Silverstone is an active community volunteer and serves on a number of organizational boards including the St. Vincent’s Special Needs Center; the Stamford Museum and Nature Center, Workplace, Inc., CT Beardsley Zoo, and the Barnum Festival. He also serves on the Mystic Aquarium President’s Council. In Washington, Silverstone serves on the National Association of Water Companies Government Relations Committee and Communication Committee.
