Joshua Harris was born into a Jewish family and grew up in Chevy Chase, and went to The Field School in Washington D.C. He later continued his education at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and subsequently earned an MBA from Harvard Business School. During his time at college, Harris competed in wrestling, triathlon and the marathon. Although at one time considered pursuing a political career as a Republican, but eventually decided to concentrate on the private sector instead.
Joshua started his real working life at Drexel Burnham Lambert, a major Wall Street investment banking firm, but after it went bankrupt, Harris, Leon Black and Marc Rowan founded Apollo Global Management in 1990, in which he has worked ever since, with increasing success overall and so regarding his own net worth too. At the moment, he serves as one of the managing partners of Apollo.
In 2011, he was also a part of the investment group that purchased the Philadelphia 76ers team in the National Basketball Association for $280 million. Alongside Harris, other investors were Will Smith & Jada Pinkett Smith, James Lassiter, Michael Rubin, Marc Leder, David S. Blitzer, Art Wrubel, Adam Aron, and Jason Levien, among others, in what has proven to be a profitable business venture, if not necessarily in results on the court.
Joshua also has a keen interest in sports, and in August 2013, Harris and Blitzer led a group of investors in a $320 million purchase of the New Jersey Devils of the National Hockey League, including the rights to the Prudential Center in Newark. After former English Premier League (EPL) soccer club Aston Villa’s owner Randy Lerner announced that the club was up for sale, Harris considered purchasing the seven-time English champions, but he bought an 18 percent of the stake in Crystal Palace, another EPL club, in late 2015 instead. Looking yo the future, should a National Football League club ever be based in London, then Harris would be interested in that investment too!
