Stephen Murray CCMP Capital has been my role model for many years now. As a matter of fact I think it has been almost 10 years since the first time I met him. Our first run in was at a business conference in New York City and we talked over a cup of coffee during a break at a three day conference. For the next few days we were stuck in the same conference room listening to the same speech we had both heard thousands of times over and over again. The great part of it was that I got meet him and he ended up hiring me for a temp position years down the road. It was more of a favor to me during a crisis, but it was very much appreciate and forever remembered.
I only spend two weeks at Stephen Murray CCMP Capital when he hired me on for a temp, but during that time I actually had a blast. I had not had much experience with that type of work before, but he had me up and going in no time at all. Me and my wife had gone through a divorce at that time and he hired me to help pay for my divorce lawyer. When I say helped me, I also mean he actually threw in a few grand into getting me a better lawyer than what I had. The crazy thing about it is that with his lawyer, I got everything I “needed” out of the court date. She did not get my home or my car. Two things I was scared of losing.
Because of Stephen I got to keep my life and gain a new friendship. Something that is very hard to find from a person in today’s world. Thankfully for me, I found it with Stephen that day we met in New York City. If I ever had to hand out a recommendation of Stephen Murray CCMP Capital it would probably be the best one out there as the company is one of the best. Not only did it used to be run by the best, but the way the company is structured is actually pretty amazing. For anyone searching for the perfect position and opportunity to learn what it is like to work at a professional firm, CCMP is most definitely the place to apply at. Even my short time spent there, I became a much better person than I have ever been in my life.
