CCMP Capital is an investment company that specializes in leveraged buyouts and growth equity in the middle market sectors of the economy. For the last decade or so, CCMP has made a reputation operating in the Healthcare, Industrial, Consumer and Energy sectors.
The firm owes a huge part of its past and present to the late Stephen Murray, a forward thinker, and shrewd administrator. Until his demise, Stephen Murray served a tenure of ten years as the President and CEO of CCMP Capital. He was also one of the co-founding principles of CCMP Capital back in 2006 after he had realized there were massive investment gaps in the middle market economies.
At the age of just 52 years, Stephen Murray died too soon, but he made a huge impact to both CCMP Capital, his family and the general public. The incoming CCMP boss expressed the level of grief at the firm over the loss of the founding partner. Stephen Murray had mastered private equity investments throughout his career. He rose through the ranks since joining the mother company that was Manufacturers Hannover Corporation as a trainee.
Stephen Murray also attended the prestigious Boston College and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree. Five years later, he enrolled in a master’s program in business administration at the Columbia Business School. Stephen’s mastery of leveraged buyouts and growth equity made him an indispensable employee as the Manufacturers Hannover Corporation underwent subsequent mergers and takeovers.
In the year 2005, he became the director of leveraged buyouts, and it took him no time to identify gaps in market opportunities. A year later, Mr. Stephen Murray led a few other comrades in forming CCMP Capital. They hit the ground running and made the firm a success which earned them the respect of other companies. Stephen Murray rightfully took up the demanding role of CEO and President of CCMP Capital.
Patch noted that Stephen Murray will be remembered across the corporate and social communities. He served on the college board of the Boston College as well as the Make-a-wish Foundation where he was also an active contributor. Stephen Murray’s involvement in social and philanthropic initiatives taught others to embrace values of community and responsibility.
At the family level, Stephen was married to his wife Tami and was blessed with four children who now carry on his legacy. Hopefully, his family continues to make wishes come true for other needy families out there.
