Dissatisfied with the coverage of women’s sports, two sisters, Antonia and Charlotte Newman, founded Team Fenom with a singular goal, to create the most recognizable brand in women’s athletics.
Team Fenom is an online community connecting fans and a destination for women’s sports news and fitness information. Fenom was derived from combining female and phenomenal. Team Fenom is an expression of the global community of individuals who support women’s sports.
In addition to filling a void in sports media, Team Fenom empowers females through sports. Our work promotes women’s athletics, assisting in its growth and sustainability. We encourage girls to be active and pursue sports and fitness.
Antonia Newman, Co-Founder and CEO
As CEO, Antonia works feverishly to expand Team Fenom’s reach and position the organization to set the standard for women’s health, fitness and sports coverage in the media. Her love of and past experience with athletics and women’s sports drives her to do the work she does in support of Team Fenom daily. Antonia has over five years of sports management experience. She has worked in basketball development with the Atlanta Hawks and in marketing and fan development with the Hawks & Thrashers. Given her devotion to athletics and passion for women’s sports, Antonia has volunteered her services with Florida Southern College’s women’s basketball program, the WNBA’s Atlanta Dream, and the Atlanta Beat of Women’s Professional Soccer.
Prior to becoming a sports management professional, Antonia graduated with honors from Florida Southern College, earning a B.S. and MBA. Her athletic achievements include being a two-time Kodak/WBCA All-America honorable mention, holding school records in rebounds and blocked shots, and leading her team to four seasons of post-season play. After a successful collegiate career, Antonia played professional basketball in Europe. In 2013, she was inducted into the Florida Southern College Athletics Hall of Fame.
Charlotte Newman, Co-Founder and COO
An entrepreneur with a love of sports and a penchant for communication, Charlotte is fascinated by digital media and is an avid blogger. She started two blogs—one a summary of the best stories in technology and digital media. Charlotte’s interest in digital media grew out of her communications experience as an advisor to two U.S. Congressmen, Chris Murphy and David Scott. In her role as co-founder of Team Fenom, Charlotte draws on extensive experience writing opinion editorials, speeches, and policy statements on Capitol Hill.
Charlotte holds a B.A. from Wellesley College and graduated from Harvard Business School. She currently sits on the board of the Harvard Business School Club of Atlanta. In line with her passion for all things sports, Charlotte is an avid runner and huge sports fan in general. She formerly played basketball and ran track.
