Biography

Chris Newman
Chris became affiliated with Saint John’s at the urging of her longtime friend Mary Hesburgh. Mary, who in 1987 was launching a support organization to increase Saint John’s visibility in the community, invited Chris to an inaugural luncheon. The rest, as they say, is history. The event marked the beginning of the Irene Dunne Guild, a major support arm of the Health Center.
Chris went on to serve as president of the guild serving one year on her own and one year alongside trustee Mary Flaherty.
Chris’s talents impressed members of the Saint John’s Health Center Foundation, and in 1995 she was invited to become a trustee. She has proudly held that position for more than two decades. In this role, she has hosted numerous fundraising events for the hospital. As a member of the board affairs committee, Chris has made it a priority to identify strong new members who can contribute their own unique talents to the Foundation.
Chris is married to AECOM founder and chairman emeritus Dick Newman. AECOM is a multinational company that provides design, building and project management services. The couple, who met as students at Bucknell University, celebrated 58 years of marriage this year, and Chris says that it just gets better every year. Residents of Santa Monica, Chris and Dick maintain close relationships with their three grown sons, John, Rick and Kevin, daughters-in-law Lori and Amy and long-term girlfriend Mari, and four grandchildren.
Chris supports several other institutions in addition to Saint John’s Health Center. She is on the boards of the Children’s Institute, Inc., a Los Angeles nonprofit dedicated to the treatment and prevention of child abuse and neglect, and Blue Ribbon, the premier women’s support organization of The Music Center. She served as past president of the Juniors of Social Service, which supports Regis House’s educational, recreational and social service programs in Los Angeles.

Chris was born in Warsaw, Poland. Her family moved to Canada when she was 3 years old. Chris’s parents told her that when she went to the park each day, she would watch the other children but not say a word. She simply listened. Then one day she opened her mouth and she could speak English perfectly.

Today Chris Newman still waits to speak until she feels she has something worth expressing. So when she talks, you know it will be worth your while to listen. And you’ll likely be enhanced by the experience.
