Living our values

“Perhaps the most unusual of family traditions – growing up we would celebrate birthdays at 6:30am; we called it “cake for breakfast”. My dad worked two jobs, including a nightshift, and he’d arrive just as my mother would light the candles. She’d ensure we finish most days with a book, while he got ready to start again. It all somehow worked, and with much joy. And today I get to do what I do because of their tenacity and their ability to adapt with a smile on their faces.”

Juan's Story

JP is originally from Quito, Ecuador, but grew up between Ecuador and the US. Though interested in a broad set of topics as a kid, he delved into physics and finance during his undergraduate years. His time in finance has seen him focus on industrials, energy, transportation, consumer, and more recently technology investing across the Americas. This background made Apax particularly compelling for him, given the firm’s curious, everlearning culture and its global ethos.
