Living our values

“Growing up, I loved watching Ken Griffey Jr. and, naturally, as a Mets fan, Mike Piazza. In an era where most have tarnished reputations from steroid use, these two chose playing right over easy. The two were rewarded when they were inducted together into the Hall of Fame, without any of their peers – one having been a former #1 draft pick, the other #1,390.  I’ve admired that Apax approaches investing as my childhood icons approached baseball, and personally look to choose right over easy each day.”

Jesse's Story

Jesse’s first job was at a hardware store – his boss knew how to sell, but not how to run a business.  He got hooked on working to create processes and structure to build up the operations.  Having worked on the Global Buyout and Digital investment teams, as well as the operating side at Boats Group, Jesse remains hooked on that shared goal of working alongside teams and partners to build better businesses.
