The Craig Fahle Show

Business Leaders For Michigan Plan for New Michigan Economy

Tuesday, February 7, 2012

Business Leaders for Michigan (BLM) is the state’s business roundtable, composed of the chairpersons, CEOs or most senior executives of the state’s largest job providers and universities. Together, our members power one-quarter of the state's economy and educate nearly one-half of the state's university students, which makes us a powerful driver for economic development and change.

BLM’s work is concentrated on developing strategy, raising awareness, advocating policy and championing initiatives that grow the state's economy. Our members know what it takes to make the economy grow and create new jobs, and they’ve distilled that knowledge into a comprehensive turnaround plan for the state. Our organizational activities are geared toward achieving the goals outlined in that plan.

What’s more, we keep our focus on the cutting edge by continually researching and benchmarking new data and strategies that can help advance Michigan’s economy.

Craig's guests include Gerard M. Anderson, President & CEO, DTE Energy; Sandra E. Pierce, President & CEO, Charter One-Michigan; and Doug Rothwell, President & CEO, Business Leaders for Michigan.

BLM is a private, nonprofit organization.
