Kevin Plank


Kevin Plank

Kevin A. Plank (born August 10, 1971 in Kensington, Maryland) is an American entrepreneur and businessperson.

In 1996 he founded Under Armour, a sports apparel brand. A football player with the University of Maryland who eventually became special teams captain for the Terrapins, Plank thought up the idea because he "got tired of having to change out of the sweat-soaked T-shirts he wore under his jersey, so he developed a type of moisture-wicking fabric for athletic performance" [http://www.fastcompany.com/magazine/97/under-armour.html]

Following his dismissal from Georgetown Preparatory School, Plank attended St. John's College High School before arriving at Maryland.
