Exelon Corporation has appointed Calvin G. Butler Jr., CEO of Baltimore Gas and Electric Company (“BGE”), as senior executive vice president of Exelon and CEO of Exelon Utilities.

“With this strong leadership team in place, Exelon Utilities will continue to drive innovation and deliver the best possible results for our customers and the communities we serve,” said Christopher M. Crane, president and CEO of Exelon. “Calvin is part of a deep bench of talented industry leaders who are building Exelon’s next generation energy-grid with a focus on sustainability, resiliency, and reliability.”

In his new role, Butler will oversee Exelon’s six local electric and gas companies — Atlantic City Electric, BGE, ComEd, Delmarva Power, PECO and Pepco. Together, they form the nation’s largest utility company by customer count, serving approximately 10 million electric and gas customers in New Jersey, Maryland, Illinois, Delaware, Pennsylvania and the District of Columbia, respectively. He will remain a resident of Baltimore and work out of Exelon’s D.C. offices.

Butler is an 11-year veteran of Exelon and has more than 25 years of leadership experience in the utilities industry and in regulatory, legislative and public affairs. As CEO of BGE, he was responsible for implementing the utility’s strategic priorities, including its initiatives related to safety, reliability, customer service, innovation and diversity and inclusion. Butler serves on BGE’s board of directors and on Exelon’s Executive Committee.

In addition, he is board chair of the Gridwise Alliance, an advocacy organization promoting modernization and innovation for the nation’s electrical grid, and serves on the board of directors for RLI Corp., where he is a member of the Audit and Nominations/Governance Committees. He is an Independent Trustee of the PNC Funds Board, and previously served on the board of directors for the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond.

“Under Calvin’s leadership, BGE has made significant advancements in customer service and electric reliability, resulting in record customer satisfaction and solid financial results,” Crane said. “His strong track record will be invaluable as we further our commitment to provide clean, affordable and reliable energy in the communities we serve.”
