Living our values

“I grew up in an entrepreneurial environment where my parents and many family members had their own little businesses. Every morning the doors opened, and the race restarted to provide our customers with an outstanding service and experience. The success that came with dedication and passion to be different every day was truly inspiring. And re-inventing yourself while preserving your core identity was key to create decades of customer loyalty. That’s why “We learn, adapt and grow” is my favourite Apax value.”

Markus' Story

Markus always had the passion of being an entrepreneurial CFO in international businesses. Providing financial visibility, being a sparring partner across the organisation, and optimising cash and costs enabled making better business decisions that accelerated value creation. That’s why he was attracted to join Apax where he can share his experience across the global diversity and the various industries of the Apax funds' investment portfolio. At home, Markus loves cooking favourite recipes or new dishes for family and friends. And matching it with the perfect glass of wine!
