SECRETARY, MARYLAND DEPARTMENT OF BUSINESS AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT, BALTIMORE

RESUME: Appointed secretary of business and economic development on Nov. 23, 1998, by Gov. Parris N. Glendening; managing director for BT Alex.

GREATEST ACCOMPLISHMENT: "To have been appointed by Governor Parris N. Glendening to be secretary of business and economic development. I didn't have to think twice about accepting the job. Not only was it an honor to work for a governor who understands that educational excellence is the surest engine of future economic growth, but I was thrilled for a chance to work productively for a state that has afforded so much opportunity to me."

ON THE RECORD: "Having been in business the last three decades, I think I know what businesses are looking for. They want government to be responsive to their needs. Managers understand the word `yes,'and they understand the word `no.'But they don't understand the line, `I will get back to you in six weeks.' Maryland is rapidly becoming one of the most responsive states in the most business-friendly nation in the world, and I am proud to be a part of Governor Glendening's economic development team."
