The Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce extends our deepest condolences to the Crane family upon the passing of Christopher Crane, the former CEO of Exelon Corporation and the 2018 recipient of the Chamber’s Daniel H. Burnham Award for Distinguished Leadership. Christopher was a pillar of our community, a visionary leader, and a true advocate for economic growth and prosperity.

Exelon achieved several remarkable accomplishments under Christopher’s guidance, including advancing clean energy initiatives and furthering innovation in the industry. His commitment to sustainable practices and community engagement set an example for businesses across the region.

As we reflect on Christopher’s legacy, we recognize that his impact transcends corporate achievements. Christopher will be greatly missed, but his influence lives on in the hearts and minds of those who had the privilege of knowing him. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends during this difficult time.

-Jack Lavin, President and CEO, Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce
