Company History

Audax Group was founded in 1999 by Geoff Rehnert and Marc Wolpow with the vision of building the leading capital provider for the middle market. Today, Audax Group manages over $11.5 billion in assets across its equity, mezzanine debt, and senior debt businesses. The majority of our experienced team of Co-CEOs and 25 Managing Directors have worked together for more than a decade.

The ColorMatrix founders wanted to take the company global and found a great partner in the Audax Private Equity team. They worked hand-in-hand with us, dramatically increasing our margins and creating value. Their experience at a global level really helped us build cohesive operations and find new market opportunities.”
