2 Gov. Martin O'Malley plans to announce today the appointment of Christian Johansson, a Harvard University-educated entrepreneur who has run a Baltimore-based business and government alliance, as the state secretary of business and economic development. Johansson, who must be confirmed by the Senate, would replace David W. Edgerley, who resigned in December to pursue a career in the private sector or education. O'Malley has sought to reorganize the Department of Business and Economic Development, a process that emphasized efforts for the biotechnology industry and international trade and consolidated some functions.

At a time of financial crisis, Gov. Martin O'Malley has chosen as the state's new economic development chief a thirtysomething Baltimorean whose private-sector experience includes a failed dot-com, two companies based out of his mother's home and a year at a consulting firm. O'Malley's choice of Christian S. Johansson to lead the state Department of Business and Economic Development might seem risky for a Cabinet post recently held by men decades his senior with far more experience in business and government.

The Greater Baltimore Alliance yesterday said yesterday that it had named a 31-year-old entrepreneur and consultant as the No. 2 executive at the economic development organization, positioning him for the top job when the group's leader leaves in six months. Christian S. Johansson will assume the role of executive vice president July 7 and become a potential successor to President and Chief Executive Ioanna T. Morfessis, who will step down Dec. 31 to start her own business. The regional business group, whose mission is to lure and retain businesses, still intends to conduct a national search for a replacement for Morfessis, said John A. MacColl, GBA board chairman and vice chairman of insurer St. Paul Cos. Inc. But he and Morfessis, who announced her resignation in April, left little doubt that Johansson had made a strong impression on GBA leadership.

NEW YORK - Tim Henman's classic game of serve-and-volley tennis was made invisible yesterday at the U.S. Open. Henman, the 30-year-old Briton with the tidy white clothes and tidy game, was deflated by Roger Federer's precision from both the backhand and forehand sides and punctured by his sharply angled volleys. In only 1 hour, 46 minutes, Federer, the world's top-ranked player, moved into his first U.S. Open final with a 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 win over fifth-seeded Henman. In today's final, Federer will face Lleyton Hewitt, the Australian pest who didn't back down from the booming serves of Joachim Johansson and will not back down from Federer's calm pursuit of perfection.

WASHINGTON - The Washington Capitals had put together a great plan for this season. A run at the Stanley Cup was in their view finder. And Washington may still make the run. But if the Caps do, they will do it in quite a different way from what they had first imagined. Saturday, the team learned it will be without defenseman Calle Johansson, its longtime defensive anchor. The 14-year Caps' veteran is having surgery today to repair a severely torn right rotator cuff and will be out for up to eight months.

Maryland's unemployment rate is creeping higher, though still trailing the national average. The state's struggling with a budget deficit, and many agencies, including the Department of Business and Economic Development, face sharp funding cuts. Yet Christian S. Johansson, the agency's new secretary, is bullish about Maryland's position in the recession. The 36-year-old Harvard MBA was tapped by Gov. Martin O'Malley in January to lead the agency, He knows that past governors have typically chosen DBED leaders with more experience, but Johansson said he believes he'll be judged more on the results he can deliver to businesses and workers across Maryland.

Standing at one of the 16 floor-to-ceiling windows inside his 20th-floor luxury condo, Christian S. Johansson brings to mind a popular movie scene -- you know, the one about being king of the world. Indeed, Johansson's lofty perch at the Harbor Court in downtown Baltimore is certainly fit for a king. Or at the very least, a successful 35-year-old bachelor who enjoys living in a residential building attached to a four-star hotel, complete with restaurants, a concierge and doorman, gym and more.
