  • I thoroughly enjoyed my time as a board member of Capex. The most valuable aspect of being a member was the ability to network and develop personal relationships with my peers in Chicago. I believe the events allowed deal professionals to meet in a more casual atmosphere without the pressures or distractions of a broader networking or ACG event.
