BGE has promoted John Corse to vice president and general counsel for the company, replacing Dan Gahagan who announced his retirement in September.

Corse most recently served as Associate General Counsel for BGE’s parent company Exelon where he oversaw litigation activities for many of Exelon’s operating companies, including the Maryland-based competitive business and Exelon utilities BGE, Pepco, Delmarva Power and Atlantic City Electric.

Corse has a long and distinguished career in Maryland, starting his legal profession in Baltimore at the law firm of Piper & Marbury which later became Piper Rudnick LLP.  He was also an insurer with USF&G Corporation before joining Exelon in 2003 as Chief Litigation Counsel for Constellation. John has been active in many pro bono efforts with the Baltimore City Bar Association and is a supporter of the United Way of Central Maryland.

Resides in:

I’m a proud Baltimore resident, my wife and I have lived in the Charm City for 32 years now.


I have a Bachelorof Arts in political science from Stanford University and a Juris Doctor from the University of Kansas School of Law.

How did you get involved with United Way of Central Maryland? 

Exelon is very active in the communities that we serve and encourages employees to get involved in organizations that they care about through volunteer service. The work that the United Way of Central Maryland does in Baltimore and across the state really resonated with me.   They have the broadest reach and touch so many areas, it is great to be involved with an organization that helps so many people and groups daily.

If you had not chosen your current profession, what profession would you choose and why? 

If I was better athlete it would have be fun to try to play tennis professionally.  I grew up playing tennis and played tennis in college, but I didn’t have what it takes to make it to the professional level.  Today’s athletes are incredible and I am in awe of what they can do on the court.

Favorite vacation:

The most fun my wife and I have is when we go visit our daughters at college.  It is wonderful to see them enjoying their experiences at Stanford and Notre Dame.

When I want to relax, I … :

I’m a sports nut, my wife says I’m a man of all (sports) seasons.  I love any and all sports-football, baseball, basketball, tennis and soccer-they are all a great way to escape from the real world.

 Favorite musician: 

Bob Dylan. The first concert I went to was in 1973 and it was a Bob Dylan concert. I really appreciate and admire everything he’s done with his career.

Favorite quotation:

Pick almost any line from a Bob Dylan song.
