Merger of Greater Baltimore Committee and Economic Alliance of Greater Baltimore Approved
The newly merged organization will create a bold vision for the region’s future through new ways of working
At its annual meeting on May 25, 2022, the Greater Baltimore Committee (GBC) members formally approved its merger with the Economic Alliance of Greater Baltimore (EAGB). The merger brings together two storied regional organizations to create a singular vision for how Baltimore will compete and thrive on regional, national, and global stages and the strategic role business will need to play.
The merged organization, which will operate in the near term as the Greater Baltimore Committee, will focus on collaboration and equity in all of the Greater Baltimore region’s communities. It will also enhance marketing the region’s dynamic assets.
“When we announced our intent to merge in January, we promised that our approach and the role of business would be different and we would make consistent and important progress,” said Brian D. Pieninck, President and CEO of CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield, GBC Board member and former Chair of EAGB. “Over the last several months, we have demonstrated our commitment to that promise by successfully bringing new voices into the conversation and working in partnership with our region’s businesses, communities, and elected officials. There is much work still to be done, but we have shown that what we intended to, what we have done, and what we will continue to do will be demonstrably different and result in positive change and progress for the region.”
