Stephen J. Bisciotti (born April 10, 1960) is the current majority owner of the Baltimore Ravens of the National Football League. He founded a family of technical staffing companies known as Allegis Group, which owns Aerotek and TEKsystems.
Steve Bisciotti came from a working-class Italian-American family in a Baltimore suburb. His parents, Bernard and Patricia Bisciotti, moved to Severna Park, Maryland, in March 1961.
Growing up, Bisciotti loved sports. His father took the children to Baltimore Orioles and Colts games. In his senior year at Severna Park High School, he played on the football team, though he has said he “wasn’t much of a high school athlete.”
In 1982, Bisciotti graduated from Salisbury State University in Maryland with a degree in liberal arts. A year later, at 23, he and his cousin Jim Davis started Aerotek, a staffing company in the aerospace and technology sectors. Running the company out of a basement office with secondhand equipment, Bisciotti and Davis produced $1.5 million in sales in the first year. Aerotek grew into the Allegis Group, which is now the largest privately held staffing firm in the United States and 4th in the world. Bisciotti’s involvement in the sports business has brought more attention to his once low-profile company.
