The name Stephen Murray is always associated with CCMP Capital, but have you ever wondered why it isn’t associated with his philanthropic efforts? Generally, anyone that has worked in the field of finance gets more recognition for what they do with their business rather than what they do as a person.

Murray was insistent on finding ways to give back using his vast knowledge and his skills.
Stephen Murray may have focused on learning how to help others invest their money, but clearly he believed it was wise to invest in the person.
