Baltimore County Welcomes BGE Home to New Headquarters

BGE Home held an official ribbon cutting for it's new home at Baltimore Crossroad @95. The new corporate headquarters is located off Maryland Route 43 in Middle River. The new 55,000-square-foot building was developed by Chesapeake Real Estate Group. Outgoing BGE Home President Bill Munn, who was working his last day before retirement, said moving the headquarters to eastern Baltimore County from Columbia was a risk because there werent any roads or even a building. The entire site was built from scratch, but he feels it was worth it. It was the best decision we could possibly make, Munn said. He thanked Baltimore County for all of its help and invited County Executive Jim Smith and Councilman Joe Bartenfelder to the ceremony. Munn also promised improved service at the new location. This is a customer centric and a customer service center, and our customer service will be a lot better, Munn added. Kevin Klages took over as the new CEO of BGE Home on March 1. Klages looks forward to the opportunity to take his company to the next level and is excited about the new location. Baltimore County has been outstanding and we appreciate the warm welcome they have given to us, Klages said. BGE becomes the 11th business located along the Route 43 extension since it opened in October 2006. It is really the road to opportunity, and I think its proven its slogan, Smith said. Bartenfelder called the move of BGE Home to the area a crown jewel and hopes it will motivate other businesses to move onto Route 43. When Route 43 was extended and completed, we talked about how important that was going to be for the economic engine of Baltimore County, Bartenfelder added. BGE Home is proud because its new home is considered a Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) certificated Green Building. This includes energy use that is Energy Star compliant, better water management and the use of recyclable materials. The new building will also have increased ventilation and low-emitting building materials, such as carpeting and furniture. In addition, BGE Home is trying to motivate its employees to carpool by designating HOV parking spaces and has a bike rack, a shower facility and a locker room to encourage others to ride their bicycles to work.
