Three years ago, as part of an effort to craft more of a typical corporate hierarchy, Apollo named James Zelter and Scott Kleinman-at the urging of Mr. Harris-to the newly created roles of co-presidents. However, it has been a challenge for Mr. Harris to learn how to let them do their jobs without intervening, people close to Apollo say.
Some of those people remain unconvinced of Mr. Harris's ability and willingness to take steps required to modernize the firm. He regularly dominated investment committee meetings, hammering young analysts about their financial models, former employees say. Not replying right away to a Saturday morning email from Mr. Harris would yield a response 10 minutes later of "?". And he frustrated people with his iterative decision-making process, sometimes taking a year to decide not to do something.
Any Apollo bros can confirm how much of a dick this guy is. Sounds like a loser (if I was a billionaire I would not be getting in the model weeds with analysts or emailing them on Saturdays)
