CEO Corner

“I’ve been working with the CCMP team since 2007.  I can’t stress enough the value of CCMP’s dual model of having partners with both operating and financial backgrounds.  Collaborating with partners who have also been CEOs is invaluable, and clearly, their financial expertise is critical especially in the case of an IPO.”
