Katie Newman

Katie has been a Greenwich resident since 2017, along with her husband, Michael, and their three children Maclaine, Will, and Larkin. Katie grew up in Greenwich where she attended Greenwich Academy and was a longtime member of Saint Barnabas with her family (“the Gregorys"). She has fond memories serving as an acolyte and junior chorister, and her mother, Pat Gregory, served on the vestry at the time. It has been a joy for Katie to introduce her family to Saint Barnabas and to christen her youngest daughter Larkin here a year and a half ago. Professionally, Katie is a Partner and Senior Tax Counsel at Apollo Global Management in New York, specializing in tax matters with respect to Apollo’s private equity funds, their investors and their investments worldwide. She also advises the firm on its public holding structure and its compensation plans and serves on the Board of Directors of Apollo Commercial Real Estate Finance. Prior to joining Apollo, Katie practiced at the law firm of Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP. She received her A.B. magna cum laude from Harvard University and her JD from Georgetown University Law Center. Katie serves on the Board of Directors of Women’s Justice Initiative, a non-profit focused on education, access to legal services and gender-based violence prevention, and on the Board of Directors for Chances for Children, a non-profit which provides clinical intervention services for families with young children to strengthen family bonds.
