I have worked in the field of finance for many years. During my years as an accountant, I’ve interacted with many people from numerous fields. As a result, I’ve often had cause to deal with people who are truly committed to excellence. One such person is the late Stephen P. Murray. Murray is someone who I remember fondly.
Before his untimely and unexpected death, I remember him as someone who was always happy and full of life. In our time together, I was always impressed with his unyielding integrity and his thoughtful devotion to our chosen field. As a result of his efforts, the field of finance and economics was a brighter, happier place for all of us who work here.
Our First Meeting
From the very first, I remember being attracted to numbers. Numbers were always a subject I have truly loved and adored. This was very much for Stephen Murray CCMP Capital as well. He shared my passion for the subject. This was instantly He also shared my love of being able to help our customer base get access to the kind of service we all know is important and necessary for any person of honor.
Just as I pride myself on my love of helping people, so too did the late Stephen Murray. He was also someone who cared about being there for people at all times.
Two Decades Together
When I began the long climb up the banking fiscal ladder, I realized that it would be ideal to have a teammate on my side.
This is why I reached out to someone who clearly shared my personal goals. Stephen Murray was that person. When we began our careers together at Chemical Bank over two decades ago, I knew that he had what it takes to get somewhere. His leadership skills were evident from the very first and obvious to all of those who worked with him.
We knew that he was the person we could count on to help us all figure out how best to serve the needs of our customers at Chemical. At all times, he was there for us, helping us get the knowledge we needed to stay on top.
