Living our values

"When asked about the Apax values, “choosing right over easy” has the deepest significance in my mind. I see it as foundational, and without it little of permanent value can be created. Growing up in a single parent household, I was lucky to have a mother who made incalculable sacrifices to keep our family together. She displayed resilience that still leaves me in awe, and never once chose the easy path. It is because of her I have the life that I enjoy now."
