Koby Altman Bio, Married, Family, Net Worth
Cleveland Cavaliers' manager Koby Altman needs no introduction. A well-suited guy in his thirties, there might be very few things left for him to achieve. But, Koby wasn't born with a silver spoon in his mouth; he had to struggle his way up to reach the ranks.
In the humble journey from a middle-class family to becoming a glorified manager, Koby credits his single mother for all the success.
Bio: Age, Ethnicity, Family
Koby Altman was born on 16 September 1982 in Brooklyn, New York City. He was raised in a low-income family. Koby's parents were separated even before his birth.

Koby is a married man with a loving wife at his disposal.
The manager and his partner, Rachael Emily Garson had got engaged on 17 September 2017. The news of their engagement was later published in the Cleveland Jewish News.

The couple later got married in a low-key wedding ceremony on 18 August 2018. Together, the husband-wife duo shares a girl child; however, their daughter's identity is kept a secret.
With a loving family of three, Koby might be one of the few people to have succeeded both personally and professionally.
