The GBC: A framework for private-sector leadership, collaboration
In these challenging economic times punctuated by government partisanship and gridlock, where can innovative thinking, leadership and collaboration for the future be found?
The answer: where they have always been found—in the private sector.
It’s that way today, and it was that way in 1955 when a group of 83 entrepreneurs and business executives met
on January 5 and formed the Greater Baltimore Committee to “take prompt and aggressive action” to address
pressing problems facing Baltimore City.
The members of the new organization, which included Clarence W. Miles, an owner of the newly-purchased
Baltimore Orioles, and a young mortgage banker named Jim Rouse, were “not interested in glamour, platitudes
or false promises,” they said. Instead they sought to create an organization that would apply private-sector
vision and resources to getting things done.
Miles, whose law firm—Miles and Stockbridge—remains a leading GBC member today, was named the first
chairman of the GBC. He and his colleagues envisioned a private-sector action committee to address the critical
business climate issues of the day—Baltimore’s deteriorating downtown and its need for revitalization, critical
transportation infrastructure and new business development.
From that beginning sprung major downtown development, a spectacular revival of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor
and subsequent economic growth beyond to the city’s north and south shores. GBC-led accomplishments
along the way also include downtown baseball and football stadiums, a convention center and restoration of
the Hippodrome Theatre, just to name a few.
Meanwhile, GBC policy advocacy has been influential in shaping government initiatives on issues ranging from
regional transportation to competitiveness for economic growth and job creation.
During the last six decades, the GBC has broadened its perspective to a regional focus, and strong privatesector vision and advocacy for progress is needed more than ever.
The GBC remains uniquely positioned for this role, leading the way today to strengthen transportation infrastructure, the Inner Harbor, workforce development and to support the growth of industry sectors vital to our
economic future. Such sectors include cybersecurity, bioscience, information technology and health care, as
well as industries related to the thriving Port of Baltimore.
The GBC also serves as a respected and credible voice of free enterprise in Annapolis, tackling policy issues
related to our state’s competitiveness such as tax structure, government spending priorities and regulatory
Along the way, the GBC serves as the premier venue in the region for building business relationships as we work
together to strengthen our business climate.
The GBC provides the framework for a unified, connected, visionary and engaged business community. This
directory lists the business and civic leaders who are part of the framework and who drive the work of the GBC.
Sixty years after a group of visionaries met in Baltimore to form a new vehicle for meaningful private-​sector
advocacy, the GBC remains the region’s “go to” organization for getting things done. We gratefully acknowledge the GBC’s strong board leadership, the personal involvement of our members, a resourceful staff nd our
many civic and government partners.
We look forward to continuing our work together to apply private-sector vision and advocacy to the vital
mission of strengthening competitiveness for economic growth and job creation in the Baltimore region and
in Maryland.

GBC’s Core Pillars for a
Competitive Business Environment
◆ Government leadership that unites with business as
a partner. Maryland leaders must consider the private
sector as a partner, not an adversary, and develop a
strategic plan for job creation and growth.
◆ Workforce that is highly educated and meets
Maryland’s business needs. Maryland’s education
institutions must cultivate a workforce suited to the
specific needs of aryland’s business sectors.
◆ Regulatory policies that are streamlined, stable and
predictable. Maryland must project to businesses that its
government regulatory policies are reasonable, relevant,
free of surprises or redundancy and considerate of
businesses’ sense of urgency.
◆ Tax structure that is fair and competitive. Maryland’s
tax policy must be perceived by businesses as being
competitive and devoid of elements that unreasonably
target specific businesses or business se tors.
◆ Competitive costs of doing business. Public policies
must refle t a government predisposition to nurture
business growth and to avoid imposing additional
overhead upon the business sector.
◆ Superior transportation infrastructure with reliable
funding mechanisms. Well-funded and maintained
transportation infrastructure is an essential prerequisite
for business growth.
◆ Strategic and effective state investments in business
growth. Investments should include competitive and
effective tax credits, incentives and tactical initiatives to
nurture private investment.
◆ Business marketing strategy that is aggressive,
coordinated, long-term, and well-funded. Competitive
states invest in comprehensive communication and
promotion of business strengths to internal and
national audiences.

GBC Vision
Greater Baltimore—Baltimore City and
the fi e surrounding counties (Anne
Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Harford and
Howard counties)—will be recognized
as a leader in the global economy.
GBC’s Regional
Regions, not individual
jurisdictions, are the primary
economic competitors in the
global economy. Successful
regions are characterized by
healthy and viable core areas,
while regions with declining core
areas do not perform as well.
The synergy among central cities
and the jurisdictions around them
is critical to a region’s success. A
thriving urban area energizes a
region and serves as a catalyst for
economic and cultural growth. In
Greater Baltimore, strengthening
regional ties and collaboration
benefits the e tire region.

Regional Business Advisory Councils
Baltimore County Business Advisory Council
Regions, not individual jurisdictions, are the primary
economic competitors in the global economy. In Greater
Baltimore, strengthening regional ties and collaboration
benefits the e tire region. With that in mind, the GBC
developed three regional business advisory councils in
Baltimore, Harford, and Howard counties.
The Baltimore County Business Advisory Council is
primarily comprised of Baltimore County businesses;
however, it is open to all GBC members regardless of their
location. It is currently comprised of a variety of industries
including banking, communications/public relations,
education, engineering, retail, real estate, etc. All members are at the senior level/executive management level
in their company.
The councils meet quarterly to discuss specific issues
that may be hindering their business growth and quality
of life. Each council monitors changes in legislation
that effect their business or region and develops policy
statements for the GBC to use to advocate on behalf of
the business community to local and state legislators. In
addition, the councils serve as a source of emerging ideas
or projects for the GBC.
Some of the past or current issues the councils are
focusing on include: working with defense contractors,
APG and other Harford County associations on promoting
the need for better public transportation, completion of
a hospitality and tourism related study titled the Harford
County Destination Market Study, workforce development,
taxation and regulation, public safety, etc.
Through the councils, each of the specified ounties is
well represented and is able to keep the business community aware of issues in their jurisdiction. The councils also
provide tremendous value with regards to gaining access
to key decision makers and providing opportunities to
meet other businesses in the counties.

Year In Review
Chesapeake Conference of CEOs
For the past two years, more than 50 CEOs selected by
the Greater Baltimore Committee have participated in
the GBC’s Chesapeake Conference of CEOs, a facilitated,
day-long series of workshops to discuss issues related to
strengthening Maryland’s business climate.
Private-sector leaders who participated in the GBC’s 2013
Chesapeake Conference of CEOs overwhelmingly agreed
that reforming Maryland’s tax structure and spending process to achieve economic growth was their top priority to
make the state more competitive. To address the priority,
the GBC created a private-sector commission to study
Maryland’s tax structure and fiscal app opriations, which
has been working for a year examining options for tax
reform and for improving the process by which Maryland
government sets spending parameters and priorities.
More than 60 business
leaders from the Baltimore
region attended the
GBC’s second Chesapeake
Conference of CEOs
this summer to review
development projects
planned in the region and
to consider privatesector options for seizing
development opportunities to strengthen
future economic growth.
18 2015 Greater Baltimore Committee Member Directory
Recommended priorities compiled by conference
participants included addressing public infrastructure
challenges in the region, streamlining the private development process to create a sense of urgency within
the public sector, building public-private partnerships
and strengthening connections between education and
business sectors.
Competitive Tax Structure and
Spending Accountability Commission
Acting on the top recommendation of the 2013
Chesapeake Conference of CEOs, in 2014 the Greater
Baltimore Committee formed a private-sector commission
of tax and fiscal xperts, CEOs, former legislators and policy professionals to study Maryland’s tax system and fiscal
management. The commission will recommend options
for reforming the tax structure to position our state more
competitively for business growth and job creation. The
commission will also make recommendations to strengthen the state’s budgeting processes and spending affordability guidelines to foster more effici t and accountable
fiscal manageme t. The GBC commission will present
recommendations to the governor and state lawmakers
prior to the 2015 General Assembly session.
Red Line
The GBC continued its advocacy efforts as the leading
business champion for construction of the 14.1-mile
light rail Red Line from Woodlawn through downtown
Baltimore to the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical System.
As the Maryland Transit Administration nears completion
of the approval process for federal funding for the Red
Line, the GBC continues to aggressively promote the extraordinarily positive impact the project will have on the
region. It will transform the region’s fragmented northsouth rail transit lines that do not connect with each other
into an integrated, connected system that will provide
easy transit access to thousands of jobs in the region. The
Red Line is one of only seven projects across the nation
included in President Obama’s FY 2015 budget for federal
New Starts funding.
Innovation Partners
The GBC’s Innovation and Technology Committee worked
as part of a team with the Tech Council of Maryland and
the Howard County Tech Council to host the inaugural
Innovation Partners meeting this summer. The meeting
matched large purchasing companies with emerging
innovative companies. Ten follow-up meetings were
scheduled between the young innovative companies and
the purchaser companies, producing 14 deals between
the eight large companies and 13 emerging companies
as a result of the 2014 meeting. The Maryland Innovation
Partners Coalition announced in October that three new
purchaser companies will participate in the 2015 meeting.
Opportunity Collaborative
The GBC is a partner in the Opportunity Collaborative,
the consortium charged with developing a Regional Plan
for Sustainable Development for Greater Baltimore. The
Collaborative’s members include local governments,
state agencies, universities and nonprofit o ganizations.
The GBC’s Robert Hellauer, director of regional transportation and federal government affair , is a member of
the steering committee. The plan will help the Baltimore
region coordinate investments in housing, transportation
and workforce development to lower transportation
costs for families, create cleaner and safer communities
and increase educational and employment opportunities
throughout the region. A financial implementation
strategy is being developed to accomplish the recommendations of the planning process.
Inner Harbor 2.0
The Waterfront Partnership, GBC and Mayor Stephanie
Rawlings-Blake are working together to implement the
Inner Harbor 2.0 plan, unveiled in fall 2013 to enhance
and improve Baltimore’s waterfront district. The plan,
developed by Ayers Saint Gross, outlines opportunities to
increase green landscape throughout the Harbor, identifies new and st ategically located free attractions and
amenities to extend the destination experience throughout the Harbor district, develops a framework that
knits together the promenade with public open spaces
along the waterfront, guides capital planning for future
renovations and improvements and develops a model
for adapting the promenade and public open spaces
as a “green infrastructure” in support of the Waterfront
Partnership’s Healthy Harbor initiative to make the Harbor
“swimmable, fishable y 2020.”
Hire One Youth
For the third year, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and
GBC President and CEO Donald C. Fry partnered with city
businesses to generate private-sector job opportunities
for the city’s youth through the Hire One Youth program,
part of the city’s larger YouthWorks summer jobs initiative.
More than 100 private-sector employers signed up to
participate in the program, which began at the end of
“Green Tracks” Project
Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake launched the
city’s “Green Tracks” project on November 5, 2014. The
project was initiated by the GBC and Ayers/Saint/Gross
several years ago to focus on the elimination of blight
and creation of new green space along the East Baltimore
Amtrak corridor. The initiative is focused on the blocks
along the Amtrak rail corridor, from the tunnel at Bond
Street to the overpass at Milton Street.

CEOs Fighting Diabetes
The GBC Health Care Committee has focused on reducing
and preventing diabetes this year through a partnership
with the Maryland chapter of the American Diabetes
Association that engages six regional CEOs in the fight
against diabetes in the workplace: Christopher Brandt,
CEO of Audacious Inquiry; Skip Counselman, CEO of
RCM&D, and committee chairman; Charles Monk, managing partner, Saul Ewing, LLP; Brian Rogers, chairman of
T. Rowe Price; Carmel Roque, CEO of Keswick Multi-Care;
and Samuel Ross, CEO of Bon Secours Baltimore Health
System. They are engaging their employees by promoting
aspects of their company’s wellness were showcased at a
region-wide event in 2014.
2014 Maryland General
Assembly Session
After more than three years of
advocacy by the GBC promoting its
“Gaining a Competitive Edge” report
and eight “core pillars” for economic
growth and job creation, the issue of
strengthening Maryland’s competitiveness for business growth gained
significa t traction in 2014.
The General Assembly passed a
firs -ever joint legislative agenda for
economic growth and job creation,
championed by Senate President
Mike Miller and House Speaker
Michael Busch. The legislative leaders
also created a commission to identify ways to keep
Maryland’s business climate competitive.
Throughout the session, the GBC urged lawmakers to
make Maryland’s competitiveness a priority and to focus
on legislation that would promote economic development and job growth. Successful legislation from the
session included bills passed to recouple the state’s estate
tax, to establish a cybersecurity investment fund, the
creation of the Maryland E-Nnovation Program and an
increase in credits for research and development investment, among others.

60 Years of Vision,
Leadership, Accomplishment
Pratt Street Piers, 1955
The Beginning
Eighty-three Baltimore business leaders met for dinner
on January 5, 1955 and created the Greater Baltimore
The idea to create an action-oriented
organization of business leaders to
visualize ways to meet Greater Baltimore’s
competitive challenges and apply privatesector influen e and resources to accomplish key initiatives had been percolating
for three years among a small group of
business people, including a young
mortgage banker named James Rouse.
James W. Rouse
Private-sector leaders were concerned about growing
challenges Baltimore faced—a decaying central city,
outmoded land use, declining property values and
tax revenue.
The Greater Baltimore Committee was formed to take
“prompt and aggressive action looking towards the
solution of many of the city’s most pressing problems,”
announced a press release GBC founders issued at their
first 1955 meetin . The organization was “not interested
in glamour, platitudes or false promises,” but instead was
envisioned as an action committee dedicated to developing solutions to chronic problems that were impeding the
city’s business growth.”
Clarence W. Miles, a founding partner of
Miles & Stockbridge and president of the
Orioles, which he had brought to
Baltimore the year before, was named
the first GBC chai man. Thomas B. Butler,
president of the Mercantile Safe Deposit
and Trust Co., was vice-chairman;
Clarence W. Miles
Daniel A. Lindley, president of the
Canton Company, was secretary; and Jerold C. Hoffbe ger,
president of the National Brewing Co., was the first
GBC treasurer.
Downtown, 1958
26 2015 Greater Baltimore Committee Member Directory
Rouse was named chairman of the GBC’s first xecutive
committee. Rouse later served as the GBC’s chairman in
1964 and 1965.
Its founders envisioned the GBC as “a voluntary citizenarm of government; non-sectional; non-political, and
non-profit ma ing,” the press release stated. “It comes into
existence because the problems of civic improvement in
Baltimore are so complex, urgent and diversified th t as
many citizens as possible should assume a share of the
Among the city’s needs cited by the GBC’s 1955 founders were: accelerated construction of the Jones Falls
Expressway; building a civic center for conventions,
cultural activities and sports events; development of the
city’s port facilities; developing a plan for modernizing
mass transportation; and developing a comprehensive
urban renewal plan.
The GBC was born out of an awareness that many proposals that would contribute to the economic, cultural,
or social vitality of Baltimore City failed not because the
opposition was so strong, but because the support was
so weak.
At the time, many development projects were being
proposed. However, most failed due to the lack of broad
community support. The GBC’s founders “realized that
no amount of programming by the federal government,
and no methods of attack undertaken by public and
private service agencies, could be successful unless they
were also supported and influen ed by local business
leaders who knew Baltimore’s strengths and weaknesses
first hand.”
It was to be the GBC’s role to work for the ideas that might
initially lack a strong voice but which had significa t
meaning for the development of a greater Baltimore.
The idea of a business-led civic group like the Greater
Baltimore Committee was not original. Founders cited
similar groups that existed in 1955 in other cities, including Pittsburgh, Milwaukee, St. Louis, and Philadelphia.
Charles Center—the GBC’s first sign ture project. The
GBC started with Charles Center, developing a bold plan
for massive redevelopment of Baltimore’s downtown core,
a midtown section between Saratoga Street on the north
and Lombard Street on the south, and Liberty Street on
the west and Charles Street on the east.
Highlights of the Charles Center project’s early development process included:
1956—The project was conceived by the GBC Planning
Council, a nonprofit subsidiary formed and chaired by
Hunter Moss, a commercial real estate consultant. After
a national search, renowned architect David A. Wallace
was hired as the council’s first director of planning.
1957—Mayor Thomas D’Alesandro, Jr. signed a
contract with the GBC Planning Council and the
Committee for Downtown to develop a plan for
downtown revitalization. That same year, Walter
Sondheim, Jr. was named chairman of the Baltimore
Urban Renewal and Housing Agency (BURHA).
1958—The GBC conducted a campaign to promote
the proposed Charles Center project to elected
officials and the public, gaining the support of Mayor
Thomas J. D’Alesandro, Jr. In November, city voters
approved a $25 million bond issue for property
acquisition and site work for the project.
1959—The City Council adopted the GBC Planning
Council’s Charles Center project as an urban renewal
plan. The Charles Center Management Office was
created as a division of BURHA to manage the
implementation of the GBC plan. J. Jefferson Miller,
retired executive vice president of the Hecht Company,
served as the office’s first general manager, insisting
on a salary of one dollar per year. In 1965, the office
would evolve into Charles Center-Inner Harbor
Management, Inc., a nonprofit corporation.
The first GBC p ess release cited the Greater Milwaukee
Committee’s record of accomplishment as evidence that
“doing business in a fin , effici t, geared-for-motion
community is better than doing business in a run-down,
traffic-clogged, wretched community.”
Early Years—Planning
Baltimore’s Transformation
The many substantial issues tackled by the GBC during
its early years, including construction of the Jones Falls
Expressway, development of Friendship Airport (now
BWI Marshall), construction of the Baltimore Civic Center,
and creation of the Maryland Transit Authority. But two
hallmark projects were spawned by the GBC in its first 15
years that changed the face of Baltimore—Charles Center
and the Inner Harbor redevelopment.
Charles Center
www.gbc.org 27
Inner Harbor—seizing an opportunity. With work on
Charles Center well underway, in 1963 newly elected
Mayor Theodore McKeldin proposed a “new inner harbor
area, where the imagination of man can take advantage
of a rare gift of nature to produce an enthralling panorama of office buildings, parks, high-rise apartments,
and marinas.”
1964—Architect David Wallace produced a plan for a
30-year, $260 million effort to redevelop the harbor’s
1965—Charles Center-Inner Harbor Management,
Inc. was created as a nonprofit successor to the
Charles Center Management Office. J. Jefferson Miller
continued as general manager of the Charles Center
project. Martin Millspaugh, who had been a key staff
member of the Charles Center Management Office,
became president and general manager of the Inner
Harbor project.
1966—The Inner Harbor plan went before voters
for bond funding. Walter Sondheim, Jr. chaired a
committee to promote the plan to city voters. The
GBC produced 300,000 flyers distributed to registered
voters and civic organizations. In November, voters
approved a $12 million bond for the project.
1968—U.S. Department of Housing and Urban
Development (HUD) released a $22.4 million federal
grant for Phase 1 of the Inner Harbor project. In
October, demolition began at Pratt and Cheapside
attraction. However, major development of offices in the
harbor area occurred earlier in the 1970s, including the
USF&G Building (1973), now the Transamerica Tower; the
IBM Building, (1975), the Garmatz Courthouse (1976), C&P
Telephone Company headquarters (1977), and the World
Trade Center (1977).
The Maryland Science Center’s completion in 1976 preceded Harborplace’s opening by four years. Other attractions to blossom at harbor’s edge in the 1980s included
the National Aquarium (1981), The Hyatt Regency Hotel
(1981), and the Gallery (1988).
GBC turns attention to “quality of life” issues
In the 1970s and beyond, the GBC called on the resourcefulness of its business leaders to meet Baltimore’s social
and economic challenges just as they had done in the
1950s and 1960s to meet Baltimore’s physical challenges.
Wholly new systems were demanded in education,
housing, employment, and transportation.
Without them, achievements like Charles Center and
the Inner Harbor would become islands in a sea of
mediocrity—or worse. Even though the GBC agenda
shifted toward what could be considered more “community development” issues, the rationale for involvement
remained strengthening the region’s business climate and
its economy.
Baltimore’s “Renaissance” Blossoms
The signature revitalization projects that the GBC championed in the 1950s and 1960s—Charles Center and
the Inner Harbor—bloomed in the 1970s and 1980s.
Meanwhile, the GBC turned its attention to “quality of life”
issues, including education, housing, minority business
development, regionalism, and cultivating the next
generation of leaders for Greater Baltimore.
Charles Center
The Charles Center project was fully completed in 1986.
More than $235 million had been invested, of which $200
million had come from private sources. The project added
two million square-feet of office space, 652 apartment
units, the Morris A. Mechanic Theater, 3,000 parking
spaces, and 430,000 square-feet of retail space.
Inner Harbor attracts
fast-pace of development
Many view the July 2, 1980 opening of Harborplace as
the single event that characterized the Inner Harbor’s
dramatic transformation from docks to a world-class
28 2015 Greater Baltimore Committee Member Directory
Public education. In public education, the GBC
found a contributory role for the business community,
recognizing that quality public education is a process
fundamental to Baltimore’s progress in all other
areas of community life. From its earlier educational
programs—the Adopt-A-School Program, School/
Business Partnerships, to later helping the city’s school
system strengthen its budget management, the GBC
continues to seek reform in the City schools to ensure
a quality and available workforce.
Housing. Ardent work had began in the mid 1960s
to rid vital city areas of blighting influences. The GBC,
through its Urban Renewal Subcommittee work during
the 1970s, studied issues affecting housing, such as
zoning, housing code enforcement and planning.
A reinforced regional focus. From the 1950s through
the 1970s, the GBC was an organization comprised of
a small group of business leaders, focusing most of
its attention on individual downtown development
projects. In 1978, the Chamber of Commerce of
Metropolitan Baltimore merged with the GBC. This
merger provided the area with a single, private-sector
voice concerned with the problems and issues facing
Baltimore City and its five surrounding jurisdictions—
Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Harford and Howard
counties. It was understood among GBC members
that, while much of its early work focused on projects
Nippon Maru visits Baltimore, 1960
www.gbc.org 29
Baltimore Harbor, 1970
in Baltimore City, the GBC’s ultimate focus was regional
in nature, as evidenced by the GBC’s earlier support
for the 1963 creation of the Regional Planning Council,
now the Baltimore Metropolitan Council.
Minority business development. Recognizing
the need among fledgling minority businesses for
financing, the GBC in 1984 facilitated the creation of
the Development Credit Fund (DCF) to serve minority
businesses. The GBC gained com­mitments from the
state’s six largest banks totaling $7.5 million, coupled
with direct loan guar­antees for minority businesses
through the State of Maryland. The Development
Credit Fund was the first joint public-private financing
entity of its kind in Maryland.
A new stadium for the Orioles
USF&G construction, 1973
Sports play a key role in the spirit of any city. Historically,
the GBC has had a role in professional sports development since its opening days. The GBC’s first Chai man,
Clarence W. Miles, teamed with Mayor Thomas J.
D’Alesandro, Jr., and won the bid to bring the St. Louis
Browns baseball fran­chise to Baltimore. Miles gained national attention for his persistence on what was regarded
as a lost cause.
The GBC’s contributions to keeping the Orioles in
Baltimore and winning legislative approval for construction of the Camden Yards site are well documented. The
GBC led business efforts to win legislative approval for the
stadium project in 1987, and successfully defeated legal
challenges from stadium opponents.
Inner Harbor, 1977
30 2015 Greater Baltimore Committee Member Directory
The GBC, stepping in at a critical juncture, broke the stalled
lease negotiations between the Orioles and the Maryland
Stadium Authority. The GBC arranged a guarantee to back
the sales of season tickets for the next 10 years. GBC leaders recruited 30 members to support a $10 million letter
of credit to back the ticket sales guarantee that helped
close the Orioles’ deal. This initiative broke the impasse
that led to agreement on a long-term Orioles lease and the
construction of the Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
Other GBC initiatives in the 1970s and 1980s
Support for construction of the Baltimore
Convention Center. The Baltimore Convention Center
opened in August 1979. It underwent an expansion
in 1996 that tripled its size. The center has been
instrumental in building Baltimore into a major east
coast destination. Today, Baltimore attracts more than
12 million overnight visitors.
Created The Leadership program. In 1983 the GBC
launched The Leadership, a year-long “leaders in
training” orientation program of seminars, weekend
retreats, experiential activities, and meetings with
some of the region’s most influential individuals. More
than 800 executives from business, non-profits, and
government have graduated from The Leadership.
Created CollegeBound Foundation. In 1988, the
GBC teamed with Baltimoreans United in Leadership
Development to create the CollegeBound Foundation,
whose mission is to help inner-city students go to
college. CollegeBound’s scholarship portfolio for
2014—15 includes 75 unique scholarships with a
total value exceeding $1.5 million. Up to 128 students
benefit annually from scholarships and grants
awarded through the CollegeBound Foundation.
Facing Stubborn Challenges,
Updating the Vision
With the keystone Charles Center and Inner Harbor projects maturing, GBC leaders worked to address stubborn
challenges facing the city and region such as education
reform and public safety. The GBC also recognized the
need for an updated vision to guide the development of
the city and region in the 21st century.
Targeting the biotech potential. In 1990 and 1991, the
GBC began its work to redefine Baltimo e’s economic
future to include a major emphasis on technology
industries—particularly biotech. In the early 2000s,
strengthening the region’s biosciences sector would
emerge as one of the GBC’s top strategic priorities.
Education reform. In the 1990s, the GBC issued a call for
“dramatic restructuring of our educational systems that
promotes creative, entrepreneurial approaches to education.” In the late 1990s and early 2000s, the GBC played a
key role in shaping funding and management reforms for
Baltimore City Public Schools.
Smart on crime. In Sept. 1995, the GBC issued its “Smart
on Crime” Report which, among other things, advocated
for increasing drug treatment on demand as a crime
reduction strategy.
NFL football returns. The GBC played a decisive role in
the 1996 effort to gain legislative approval of the stadium
deal that brought the Ravens to Baltimore.
Promoting a regional perspective. In July 1997, the GBC
issued “One Region, One Future,” a report detailing that
regions, not individual political jurisdictions, are emerging as the primary competitors in the global economy.
In 1998, the GBC partnered with the Greater Baltimore
Alliance (now the Economic Alliance of Greater Baltimore)
and subsequently with the Baltimore Metropolitan
Council to produce a series of “State of the Region”
reports, benchmarking the Baltimore region’s economic
vital signs and those of 19 other key competing regions.
www.gbc.org 31
Institutions on the east side. The GBC played a key role in
the formation of East Baltimore Development Inc. (EBDI),
with GBC members pledging $1 million in operational
funding to launch the non profit e tity charged with
managing the development an 81-acre neighborhood
revitalization and life sciences research park.

Reducing homicides and violent crime. In 1999, in its
report “First Things First,” the GBC called on all Baltimore
City mayoral candidates to adopt a goal of reducing
homicides in the city by 50 percent. The GBC backed up
its challenge by creating a $500,000 homicide reduction
fund and applied it to funding strategic or tactical initiatives aimed at reducing violent crime and homicides.
City government efficie y. From 2000–2002, volunteer
GBC-member executives conducted a series of management and efficie y studies for key Baltimore City government agencies and its human resources management.
In 2003, the GBC studied management of the city’s Inner
Harbor operations and the fiscal ope ations of the city’s
public school system. The city used the reports as “game
plans” for reforms that saved millions of dollars.
Restoring the Hippodrome Theatre. In 1998, the GBC
launched the Hippodrome Theatre renovation project by
persuading Gov. Parris Glendening and Maryland legislators to include $1.7 million in state’s budget to begin the
project planning. During the next two years, the GBC led
efforts that ultimately gained $27 million in state funding
and $5 million in private funding, before handing the
project over to the Baltimore Center for the Performing
Arts (now the Hippodrome Foundation). The Hippodrome
Theatre at the France-Merrick Performing Arts Center
opened on February 10, 2004.
Building the region’s life sciences sector. In 2002,
the GBC developed a strategic initiative to leverage the
region’s key strengths—its world-class research centers—
to drive the next phase of the city’s revitalization and the
region’s life sciences industry growth. Toward that end, the
GBC worked to support the development of life sciences
parks near the University of Maryland, Baltimore on the
city’s west side, and adjacent to the Johns Hopkins Medical
32 2015 Greater Baltimore Committee Member Directory
Transportation infrastructure, strengthening regional
transit. Since 2000, the GBC has focused on the major
issue of transportation infrastructure. In 2003 and 2004,
the GBC identified d amatically improving transit as another key priority that requires immediate attention if the
region is to remain competitive for workforce and business development. During the 2004 General Assembly
session, the GBC successfully gained commitments from
Gov. Robert Ehrlich and state legislators to earmark more
than $243 million to begin planning the light-rail Red Line
from Woodlawn to Bayview that would transform the region’s fragmented rail transit assets into a fully-integrated
regional rails transit system. Later in 2004, the GBC and
a coalition of civic and environmental organizations and
foundations in the region formed the Baltimore Transit
Alliance to push for continued funding and development
of the Baltimore Regional Transit System. Today the $2.9
billion Red Line project is well into the engineering stage
and is poised to receive a $900 million federal funding
Other transportation infrastructure issues have included
advocacy for high-speed rail in the northeast corridor
and improving rail freight transportation support for the
Port of Baltimore, and the need to address deteriorating,
often more and 100-year-old rail related infrastructure in
Maryland and along the northeast rail corridor, including
tunnels, bridges and Baltimore’s Penn Station.
Strengthening minority and woman-owned
businesses. In 2003, the GBC developed and is leading
the “Bridging the Gap” initiative to promote the inclusion
of minority-owned and woman-owned fi ms in emerging
business opportunities. The program provides recognition
and support for minority entrepreneurs, opportunity networking with industry leaders, updates on best practices
for key business management issues, and partnerships
that nurture the development of minority-owned and
woman-owned businesses. Partners in this initiative
include Baltimore Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, the Downtown
Partnership of Baltimore, the Mayor’s Office of Minority
Business Development, and the Governor’s Office of
Minority Affair .
Bridging the Gap accomplishments include a successful
initiative with the major hospitals in the region that
increased hospital procurement from minority-owned and
woman-owned vendors by more than 114 percent. The
initiative prompted the Greater Baltimore Urban League to
honor the GBC with its 2008 Whitney M. Young Jr. award.
Focusing on business competitiveness. Since 2010,
a primary focus of the GBC has been to address the
long-term “disconnect” between Maryland’s government
leaders and the private sector over Maryland’s business
climate policy and the nature of our state’s competitiveness for economic growth and job creation. That year, the
GBC facilitated a series of workshops and focus groups
with business and economic development leaders that
generated a “Gaining a Competitive Edge” report articulating eight core pillars for business competitiveness. The
GBC has since framed its legislative advocacy around the
core pillars.
A Compact for competitiveness. In 2013, building on
the eight core pillars, the GBC’s inaugural Chesapeake
Conference of CEOs developed a set of specific poli y
priorities proposed as the framework for a proposed
mutual “Compact for Competitiveness” that government
50th anniversary, Shaefer, Sondheim and Bentley
and private-sector leaders could jointly embrace to
ensure that Maryland’s public and private-sector leaders
are on the same page when it comes to the issue of
strengthening Maryland’s competitiveness. The top priority, by overwhelming consensus, is reforming Maryland’s
tax structure. Other priorities are: develop a 10-year
transportation strategy, invest in Maryland’s port and
airport resources, implement regulatory reform, deploy a
STEM-related education strategy, invest in infrastructure,
nurture innovation and entrepreneurship, strengthen
the state’s economic development resources, implement
outcome-driven accountability in K–12 education
and leverage business resources
and partnerships.
