Credentials Mean Nothing

CCMP is a private equity investment firm located in Wall Street. This also happen to be the company I used to work for. Although I had applied to CCMP to times, I finally made it in after the second attempt. After having a long talk with Stephen Murray, the now former president, he finally gave me a shot to show my stuff to him and every one else who was employed there at the time. I believe I had done a pretty good job at showing them what I was made of as I remained at CCMP for five years until I had to leave due to personal reasons. To this day I wish I would have stayed longer, but unfortunately life did not pan out the way I wanted it to at that point in time.

During my time at CCMP with Stephen Murray and the rest of the amazing employees there, I learned a lot of valuable information about private equity firms. Before working there I had never been in a firm in my life, but I had every credential saying that I was very able to work in one. That was the actual reason of why I was not hired the first time around. Because I had no first hand experience, just credentials. As much as we would all like to think they get us somewhere, the cold hard truth is that in the best places, it doesn’t.

After working at a smaller firm in New York for a little over a year, I went back to CCMP to apply again. This is when I was finally given a shot. After Stephen read my recommendation from my previous employer, he was very impressed at all that was said. I must say that my old boss at the firm was rather sad to see me go as I was one of the few dedicated employees that showed up on time every day and actually cared about working there. A lot of employees gave off the strong vibe that they did not want to be there which in return made customers walk right out the front door as quick as they came in. The mistake my old boss made was not firing them right away. People like Stephen Murray CCMP Capitalcan sense these people immediately and would not even think of hiring someone like that just to have another set of hands in the office. He would rather work later hours and suffer.

Try Beneful For Your Dog

Recently I have been switching dog food brands on my dog to see which ones she prefers the most. While it is difficult to read a dog’s reaction to her food, she seemed to prefer certain brands over the others. One of those brands she took a particular liking to was Beneful from Purina.

Purina, the famous petcare company, has released Beneful under its dog food products line. This dog food is made up of real meats, and it is loaded with vitamin rich vegetables to make sure your dog is getting his or her full nutritional intake.

My dog seemed to love Beneful because of the food’s flavor. The manufacturers of this dog food made sure to give the brand a variety of tastes and texture for dogs to enjoy. Beneful’s wet dog food comes in about 20 different varieties to choose from. The wet dog food contains ingredients like chicken, beef, pork, and lamb for its meats. For its vegetables, it has carrots, rice, green beans and barley. I also tried out the different flavors of Beneful dog snacks on my dog, and she loved all of them. There were flavors like bacon, chicken, peanut butter, beef and hickory smoke.

The good thing about Beneful is knowing that your dog is getting a healthy meal. In recent decades, people have been paying closer attention to what goes into dog food ingredients to make sure their dog is eating healthy. Beneful’s ingredients are wholesome and contain antioxidants that will give a boost in your pet’s health. It is very important to me that my dog receives daily nutritional value from her meals, and I believe Beneful provides that for her.

 

 

Dick DeVos Enters The Michigan Liquor Industry

The growth of the craft drinks market has seen many breweries and distilleries grow up around the nation as people look away from the traditional beer, wine, and liquor suppliers. One of the fastest growing craft drinks companies in Michigan, Coppercraft Distillery, has recently seen its future look a lot brighter with news of an investment by loacl business expert Dick DeVos. The AnWay executive has been making his way through a series of acquisitions in the last few years using the Windquest Holdings group as the owners of the businesses he takes control of. MLive reports Windquest was recently approved as the license holder for producing liquor under the Coppercraft Distillery company.

Dick has a long history of proving himself a business success with his expansion of the AmWay group into various areas of the world. Despite the fact DeVos was born into the family owning the AmWay group (click here to read more about this corporation) he did not seek to use the influence of the family to meet his own ambitions; in fact, DeVos was educated in the public school system of Michigan before arriving at AmWay to take up many different positions before being appointed head of international business, according to New Netherland Institute.

The fact Dick DeVos was educated in the public school system has influenced the way he provides support for the state of Michigan he still calls home. Dick and Betsy DeVos operate one of the most successful and well respected foundations in the U.S., and have looked to use their influence to increase the educational chances of the people of the state. The DBDVF Foundation has looked to create a more varied educational system that includes charter schools specializing in different areas of interest including an area Dick knows a lot about – aviation.

Continuing to invest in Michigan appears to be important to Dick DeVos and sees him take control of the Coppercraft Distillery, established in 2013 by Walter Catton III. The distillery produces a range of rum and gin products, but has been seeking to expand into the craft beer market. Coppercraft has also been looking to establish its tasting room as a destination for locals and visitors to the Holland Township of Michigan with the addition of a kitchen to the location.
