Apollo appoints managing director of investor relations
Apollo, a high-growth, global alternative asset manager, has appointed Noah Gunn as managing director and global head of investor relations. Based in New York, Gunn now reports to Martin Kelly, chief financial officer and co-chief operating officer of Apollo.
In this role, he is responsible for the development and execution of Apollo’s investor relations strategy, leading the firm’s engagement with current and prospective shareholders, as well as the sell-side analyst community.
Gunn joins Apollo from Athene Holding, a retirement services company, where he served as head of investor relations. In this role, he played a lead role in communicating Athene’s growth, performance and corporate strategy, including the upcoming merger with Apollo.
In March 2021 it was announced that Apollo and Athene agreed to merge in an all-stock transaction with a total equity value of approximately $11 bn for Athene. The transaction is expected to close in January 2022.
The deal brings Gunn back to familiar surroundings: prior to Athene, he was a principal and investor relations manager for Apollo. He has also worked as a sell-side equity research analyst at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Deutsche Bank and UBS covering a broad range of financial services companies.
