Two Great Leaders Make Career Moves!

Tony Earley, Executive Chairman of DTE Energy, announced this week he would take the helm as PG&E's new CEO next month in San Francisco.  We congratulate Tony on his new job, but are sad to lose him from the community.  While Tony says he's coming back in a few years to retire in metro Detroit, we'll miss his steady leadership for a state that needs all the good leadership it can get.  Tony was a former chair of Detroit Renaissance, our predecessor organization, and led several major initiatives to build out downtown Detroit's public spaces and improve the schools.

The good news in this story though is that Gerry Anderson steps up to add the Chairman's title to his President & CEO role at DTE Energy.  Gerry is an active BLM board member and chairs our Accelerate Michigan initiative - a partnership between BLM and the University Research Corridor designed to increase university-business engagement.  We congratulate Gerry on his promotion!
