“As the business representative to the home of the American rail industry, the Greater Baltimore Committee always strives to improve the competitive environment for the Class I freight railroads that service the Port of Baltimore and its inland markets. The freight railroad industry is a vital cog in the economics of the Port of Baltimore – 127,600 jobs, $2.9 billion in personal wages, and $310 million in annual state and local taxes – all of which makes Baltimore a leader in American industry.”

Donald C. Fry has been the President and CEO of the Greater Baltimore Committee (GBC), the central Maryland region’s most prominent organization of business and civic leaders, since November 2002. Fry served as GBC Executive Vice President from 1999 to 2002. From 1980 to 1999 Fry was engaged in a private law practice in Harford County. During this time he also served in the Maryland General Assembly. He is one of only a handful of legislators to have served on each of the major budget committees of the General Assembly.

Fry is a 1979 graduate of the University of Baltimore School of Law. He earned a B.S. in political science from Frostburg State College.
