Apax Foundation Manager
Kate Albert re-joined the Communications team in 2013 after a 2-year secondment to Investor Relations through the Apax VIII fundraise. She is a member of the Sustainability Committee and also manages the Apax Foundation.
Kate joined Apax Partners from South African paper manufacturer Sappi and is based in the London office.
Kate's grandfather was the son of non-English-speaking immigrants, growing up in a family of nine living in three rooms in the poorest part of London. He was clever, hard-working and - crucially - had access to a good education which enabled him to spring the family in one generation from poverty to comfort. Her family background drives Kate's deep interest in social mobility. Social mobility resonates with Apax's meritocratic culture and is one of the main focuses of the Apax Foundation's grants programme.
