Carim Khouzami was named CEO of BGE in 2019 when Calvin Butler Jr. was promoted to oversee Exelon Corp., BGE’s parent company. The company once known as Baltimore Gas & Electric Co. was the nation’s first gas utility.
Before the promotion, Khouzami was the senior vice president and chief operating officer for Exelon Utilities. He oversaw daily administrative and operational functions of the company’s six regulated utilities.
In 2014, he was named the chief integration officer for the $6.8 billion acquisition of Pepco Holdings Inc. He led all integration activities and served as the key witness in the state regulatory processes.
Having grown up in Baltimore, Khouzami was no stranger to BGE when he returned to the city in 2005 to work for Constellation, BGE’s former parent company. He was named CFO of BGE in 2011.
In 2019, he said he was excited to be back at the company and to enhance its connections with Baltimore.
“I’m excited to be back at BGE, a company that is such a huge part of the community, and to continue to help shape and improve the places we live,” Khouzami said in a conversation posted on the BG&E website.
“Having grown up here, I have a lot of pride in Baltimore and want to see the city thrive. BGE is a big piece of that. We do so much in the community, and I’m thrilled to be a part of the team that is leading that charge.”
