Here's a bit of what Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank has been up to this year: He reported his 14th straight quarter with more than 20 percent revenue growth; hired 300 new workers at Under Armour's Locust Point headquarters; expanded into foreign markets; partnered with the NFL and General Electric in a $10 million challenge to fund innovations in preventing and treating concussions in youth players; opened his first retail store; entered four horses in undercard races for the Preakness; and joined the advisory board for the group that's trying to develop a Baltimore-Washignton maglev line. Oh, and he's dabbling in distilling some Maryland rye whiskey. The way things are headed, Mr. Plank will give Baltimore its first Fortune 500 company since Constellation Energy was sold before the decade is out. And as long as he has anything to say about it, it's not going to leave.
