About CCMP Capital And Stephen Murray’s Sad Demise

CCMP Capital is a private equity firm that operates globally. The firm specializes in growth equity investments and buyouts in North America and Europe. The firm has partnered with the best management teams that have been able to use its operating resources and deep industry experience that are all very integral when matters related to efficiency and growth are concerned. Since 2006, the firm has been operating as an independent firm though it continues to manage the private equity portfolio owned by J.P Morgan Partners.

Typically, the company makes investments that are not less than $100 million in size and ranging to $500 million in every transaction to companies that are between $250 million and $2 billion in size. The firm has a special emphasis on providing estate diversification solutions to businesses that are owned by founders, enabling corporate carve-outs and management buyouts, helping businesses that are still in the developing stage grow as well as taking public companies private.

The firm has deep experience that is a direct product of its significant transactions in the four areas it operates in. It has invested heavily in energy, consumer and retail, healthcare and industrial sectors for a very long time such that it knows the right move to make in different varying market conditions. It has a deep understanding of the specific opportunities and issues that arise in these industries precisely the reason it is an established partner of choice among the managers in the four different niches.

All its portfolio companies benefit a great deal from its deep operating resources. The resources are made of partners who work full time to ensure that only the best practices are applied in every given sector. The firm’s chief operating professionals collaborate with the management of each portfolio company so as to come up with detailed value creation plans.

In March 2015, the firm suffered a major blow when its Chief Executive Officer and President Stephen Murray CMP Capital passed on. His untimely death at 52 years left many missing him and his selfless dedication at work. He was a Boston University Economics degree holder and a Business Administration Masters degree holder from Columbia University. He was a respected private equity investor and philanthropist who supported different charitable organizations aimed at improving the living conditions.

Murray’s experience and dedication on Wall Street was also being felt by the many boards he served in. He sat on the board of many companies that included Pinnacle Foods, The Vitamin Shoppe, Aramark and many others. He was also a Vice Chairman at Boston College among many other bodies. Those who felt his Midas touch at work will surely miss him because he was selfless, principled and a perfectionist. He is a perfect example of a professional who is qualified and passionate at what he does.
