Benjamin R. Newland

Benjamin R. Newland founded Newland Ventures to provide Middle Eastern investors with access to carefully screened and selected US real property, private equity and real-asset investments, with the comfort that those investments are properly structured, fully negotiated and on fair-market terms.

Previously, Benjamin was a partner in the New York and Dubai offices of the "Global 50" law firm of King & Spalding LLP, and an associate at the international law firm of Cleary, Gottlieb, Steen & Hamilton. His entrepreneurial and business experience includes co-founding and serving in various business capacities at Active.com, the leading provider of sports event registration and information, which subsequently listed on the NYSE and was then taken private by Vista Equity Partners for US$ 1 billion.

Benjamin earned a JD from the University of Chicago Law School, and his BA from Columbia University where he graduated summa cum laude and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. He is proficient in Spanish. Benjamin serves on the board of Friends of Rye Nature Center.
