The announcement was made Wednesday, a day after the Republican left office under term limits. Current SBAM President and CEO Rob Fowler will remain the Lansing-based organization's CEO.

Calley, who lost his campaign to succeed Rick Snyder as governor, says in a statement that he is "thrilled" to advocate for the men and women who open and operate small businesses.

Fowler says Calley has a long and accomplished record advocating for small businesses. The 41-year-old former state lawmaker and banker from Portland helped craft two major changes in business taxes as lieutenant governor.

SBAM serves more than 26,000 businesses across Michigan.
