Asked what gets him out of bed in the morning, Max says:

Aside from my two boys normally waking me up, what gets me out of bed in the morning is discussing business models with senior leaders, learning about their operations and the key drivers of their success.

Outside of work Max enjoys spending time at home or exploring new cities with his wife, with their two boys also keeping them on their toes. Max enjoys all sports, though is mainly restricted to watching these days.
