Living our values

“During the weekend you will find me building Lego structures and exercising in the park with my two young daughters. I am teaching them four languages and wish they will have the opportunity to explore the world and become conscientious citizens. I really value the collaborative culture at Apax and enjoy working and learning from its diverse team. That’s why “succeeding as one global team” and “choosing right over easy” resonate strongly with me.”
