Living our values

"I have always wanted to be a mechanical engineer like my dad growing up. I love the idea of building things from scratch, doing things in the right way and optimizing outcomes. Though pivoted to a different professional track later in my life, the mentality of 'choose right over easy' has instilled in me and led me to Apax where we care about the impact of our decisions and work with our partners to find the right path to growth."
