You can also run the command: groups to see which groups you belong to. It will list the primary group first followed by other:-

Groups don't have owners.

Your system administrator may have a list of groups and be able to name a person (or a position within your administrative domain) who is authorized to approve changes to membership in any particular group. If there is such a person, there is no requirement that that user be a member of the group.
