Mayo A. Shattuck III, who coordinated the sale of two Baltimore institutions to out-of-state concerns and ran the region's power company for a volatile decade, has retired from the parent of Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. Chicago-based Exelon Corp. didn't announce his retirement so much as mention in passing — in a hefty securities filing Thursday — that Feb. 28 was his last day as an employee. But Shattuck, 58, isn't cutting ties with the company. Previously executive chairman, he is now non-executive chairman of Exelon's board.

Taking on an accounting project and defending against shareholder lawsuits probably weren't what A.B. "Buzzy" Krongard anticipated when he re-entered the public spotlight last year from the shadows of the CIA. But that's what he's gotten as chairman of PHH Corp., an ungainly chimera of a company that can't close the books on last year or the first quarter and doesn't know when it can. Combine that with an increasingly difficult mortgage market - PHH's biggest business - and you've got a challenge that belies the "retirement" that Krongard, 69, is supposed to be enjoying.

A.B. "BUZZY" Krongard, the former investment banker and CIA spymaster, can break boards with his hands, trained with police SWAT teams and studied martial arts with a personal kung fu master. He's not somebody who finds pleasure being out of the action. So, three months after he was pushed aside as the No. 3 man at the spy agency in a corporate-style shake-up, Krongard, 68, has agreed to become nonexecutive chairman of the board of PHH Corp., a big fleet management and mortgage loan company about to be spun off from its parent, Cendant Corp.

WASHINGTON -- Howard J. "Cookie" Krongard, the embattled State Department inspector general who is accused of hindering federal investigations of the Blackwater security firm in Iraq and who has engaged in a bitter public feud with his brother, Alvin B. "Buzzy" Krongard, resigned yesterday. Dubbed by some in Washington as the "bickering brothers from Baltimore," "Cookie" Krongard, 66, a former international lawyer, and "Buzzy" Krongard, a former investment banker and senior CIA official, traded accusations last month over whether the State Department inspector general knew that "Buzzy" was serving on an advisory board of Blackwater USA, currently under investigation by the State and Justice departments.

Rep. Henry A. Waxman said yesterday that he is moving forward with plans to call Baltimore's Krongard brothers before his committee next month - despite attempts by Howard "Cookie" Krongard during the weekend to cancel the hearing. "There is no legitimate legislative purpose to be gained by publicly pitting two brothers against each other," Cookie Krongard's lawyer, Barbara Van Gelder, wrote to Waxman, chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Van Gelder wrote, "I would ask that this committee not hold any additional hearings into this matter."

PHH Corp. Chairman A.B. "Buzzy" Krongard has punched a great white shark in the face, learned kung fu and helped run the CIA, but last week he did something even more swashbuckling. He returned a journalist's phone call. And talked about his company. The feat, unthinkable for too many corporate bigwigs, left Krongard unscathed, as always. But it shouldn't take a daredevil chairman for a public corporation to fulfill one of its most basic duties: dispensing information to the public. Too many corporations have taken federal rules designed to improve financial disclosure and twisted them into an excuse to duck reporters and citizens.
