Living our values

When I was first called "humble tinkerer," it sparked a mix of curiosity and self-reflection. Research led me to Wilson Greatbatch, whose ingenuity revolutionized medical technology with the invention of the pacemaker. As I delved deeper, I grasped the essence of this label—it encapsulated the Apax value of learning, adapting, and growing. Like Greatbatch, I strive to embrace every challenge as an opportunity to innovate and evolve. In this pursuit, I embody the ethos of continuous improvement, echoing the sentiment that chance indeed favors the prepared mind.
