Josh Harris is the Managing Partner of the Philadelphia 76ers. Josh’s family history in Philadelphia is deeply rooted—all four of his great-grandparents settled there, all four of his grandparents lived there and parents met there. Following in his father’s footsteps, Josh attended the University of Pennsylvania, witnessing the iconic 76ers championship in 1983 during his time there.

Under Josh and David Blitzer’s leadership, the 76ers have grown to be one of the NBA’s 10 most valuable franchises (Forbes) and have quickly emerged as one of the fastest-growing global sports brands. The team has widened their portfolio through a variety of organizations and initiatives, including the Sixers Innovation Lab, NBA 2K League Team and the 76ers Gaming Club.

Josh and the 76ers are active members in the Philadelphia and South Jersey communities through charitable giving and partnerships with hospitals, youth centers, schools and food distribution centers. In 2015, the Sixers Youth Foundation was established to focus on youth development across the Delaware Valley and in 2016 the team unveiled a new $86 million training complex in Camden, NJ. The project not only created a new world-class and innovative practice facility for the team but demonstrates the teams’ commitment to the area and its revitalization along the waterfront.

The Philadelphia 76ers are a part of Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment (HBSE), a leading sports and entertainment platform, of which Josh is the Founder. In connection with the HBSE portfolio, Josh is the Managing Partner of the Philadelphia 76ers and the New Jersey Devils. Josh is also the Managing Partner of the Washington Commander.

Outside of HBSE, Josh is the Founder of 26North, a next-generation, multi-asset class alternatives platform with an initial focus on private equity, credit and insurance solutions. Prior to founding 26North, Josh co-founded Apollo Global Management and spent over thirty years building the firm into a leading global alternative investment manager and one of the largest alternative credit managers.

Across his platform – including through his foundation, Harris Philanthropies, Josh is committed to using a blend of philanthropic giving and impact investment to improve outcomes for underserved groups in communities where he has a deep connection. Specifically, Josh is focused on supporting vulnerable youth through sports and educational programming, championing equity and sustainable wealth creation in diverse communities and enhancing health, wellness and educational outcomes.

Josh holds an MBA from Harvard Business School, where he was named a Baker Loeb Scholar, and graduated summa cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business with a B.S. in Economics. He currently serves on the Boards of Harvard Business School, the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, the NBA, and the NHL.
