Resume: Set to become the second-youngest owner in the NFL, Bisciotti founded Aerotek in 1983 and helped build it into one of the world's leading high-tech, aviation and corporate staffing firms. It is now called the Allegis Group. The Hanover-based business is reportedly the sixth-largest staffing firm in the world, third-largest in the United States. Allegis had nearly $2.7 billion in sales in 2002, $1.2 billion in 2003, according to published reports. The firm's Web site said it has 4,600 internal employees and 65,000 contract workers across the United States, Canada and Europe. Forbes ranked Bisciotti 388th on its list of the 400 richest Americans last year with a reported net worth of $625 million. Bisciotti purchased the Ravens from Art Modell for $600 million in two stages, paying $275 million four years ago and he's set to transfer $325 million from a trust to complete the sale later this week. Modell will retain a 1-percent ownership share and will have an office next to Bisciotti in the team's new Owings Mills training complex that remains under construction.

Personal: Bisciotti married Renee in 1984 and they have two sons, Jason, 18, and Jack, 16. One of the University of Maryland's biggest athletic boosters and an avid golfer, Bisciotti occasionally plays golf at area courses with Terrapins basketball coach Gary Williams.

Quotable: "There's a big difference between fame and fortune," Bisciotti said. "I have the luxury of gaining fortune at a young age and have no interest in the fame.

"I want the Baltimore community to be proud of their team like we were with the Colts, like we are with the Orioles and have been with the Ravens. I have an obligation to the fans and the community."

"Steve Bisciotti is a good man and I think he's going to be an excellent owner," Art Modell said. "He's got passion and he's got enthusiasm for the game. My legacy will be a successful Bisciotti."

"I think Steve's going to be a really good owner and will do a fine job," Pittsburgh Steelers owner Dan Rooney said. "I've noticed that at some of the meetings people will try to take him a different way and he catches on fast. He makes up his own mind."
