Chemical Ventures were renamed Chase Capital Partners (CCP) in 1996. Finally, Chase Capital Partners were renamed JP Morgan Partners, and today we have CCMP, Chase Capital Management Portfolio. Since the formation of CCMP in 2006, Stephan Murray served as Chairman, President, and CEO and led CCMP to the success it enjoys today.
