'Let's lead by example': Calvin Butler, new GBC chair, calls for change
Calvin Butler took the mantle as the new chairman of the Greater Baltimore Committee on Wednesday and outlined his vision for how the business advocacy organization will "evolve" and become more of a leader in addressing racial inequities and injustice. Butler, the CEO of Exelon Utilities and former CEO of Baltimore Gas and Electric Co., is the GBC's 32nd chairman. He succeeded Paul Tiburzi, a senior partner at DLA Piper who has been the business organization's chairman for the last three years.
Speaking at the GBC's annual meeting, Butler described the emotions he felt as a Black man after George Floyd's death at the hands of Minneapolis police earlier this year. He also questioned how much Baltimore has changed in the five years since Freddie Gray's death. "Are we much different?" Butler asked.
