Rawlings-Blake Names New Finance Director

BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore is naming a former Richmond, Va., financial official as its new director of finance.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake’s office said Monday that Harry E. Black will replace Edward Gallagher, who is retiring after 29 years.

Black most recently served as executive vice president and chief operating officer for Global Commerce Solutions, Inc., a government services firm in Washington. Before that, he served as chief financial officer for Richmond. He has also worked for the District of Columbia government.

The mayor’s office says Black, whose appointment must be approved by the City Council, will be introduced to the legislative body at a noon luncheon on Monday.
