Living our values

The Apax value that resonates with me most is also the one that’s challenged me the most. Early in my career I struggled with the balance between speed and accuracy. Patience has never been my strong suit; while I wasn’t necessarily choosing easy over right, I was choosing speed over right. I quickly learned that quality work takes time. I refocused on developing a meticulous attention to detail and a devotion to finding the right answer, rather than the easy one. Today I pride myself on doing what’s right, whether at work or in my personal life, especially when it’s not easy.
