Living our values

"My father was an entrepreneur and some of that DNA inevitably got passed on to me. While at business school, I carefully thought of options that would allow me to have an entrepreneurial career while pursuing my passion for finance and business transformation. Apax started beeping very strongly on the radar and ultimately proved to be the right choice. The Firm offers countless opportunities to grow and thrive. That is why I choose "We have impact through insight and tenacity ".
