Mark loves figuring out how things work, and brainstorming thorny problems with ambitious management teams.
He was attracted to Apax by the talented yet humble people, and the opportunity not just to invest in start-ups but also to craft one – building out a new growth team in Europe.
In his spare time, when not ice swimming, sword fighting, or karaoke singing (badly), he enjoys dark comedies and Korean gangster films.
