Living our values

"To never stand still is the main personal standard I hold myself accountable against. It translates into never being content with the status quo, having a constantly moving set of goals, and enjoying exposure to uncertainty and adversity as a premise for progress.

Thus, I am particularly attracted to our value “We learn, adapt and grow” – describing an institution that puts learning and evolving at its core and highlighting the desire of Apax's people to develop every day."



Lucas' Story

Lucas’ passion to evaluate and understand businesses was first sparked by watching his parents build and grow a small business. Observing the required hard work, tenacity, and the challenges encountered also embedded him with a deeply held respect for any entrepreneur and risk-taker.

Apart from the opportunity to work with innovative entrepreneurs, Lucas was attracted to Apax by its equally talented and humble professionals and their shared desire to develop a deep and differentiated understanding of the companies Apax partners with.
