Hanover Trust

His first job after his undergrad was in the credit department at the Hanover Trust. He quickly showed a proclivity for finance and making great deals. Because of this, he quickly climbed the ladder at Hanover and was promoted to VP of Middle-Market investing in 1989. He also helped start a private fund during his time at Hanover that would later develop into CCMP 15 years later.


Hanover went through a few mergers during Stephen Murray’s time with the trust. This was until they were finally merged with Chase Manhattan Bank. The merger with Chase happened in 1996. Murray worked at chase in a similar role until he was put in charge of all buyout operations at J.P. Morgan & Chase in 2000. He earned this role by proving time and time again that he had a knack for making great deals when it came to mergers and buyouts.


CCMP Capital spun out from Chase in 2006 because the bank had bought out Bank One. It was thought that there would be a conflict of interest between the private equity divisions of both firms. To prevent that, CCMP was founded under the guidance of Murray. The fund is said to be worth about $12 Billion today. The average amount of investment transactions that they perform is around $100-$500 million per transaction.

Since the company started, OrganoGold has seized and locked down the world record for the sheer amount of products sold that contain and/or are infused with the medicinal properties of the ancient Chinese herb: Ganoderma.

Beyond the products and visions of the revered company, the network marketers who join up with the cause of OrganoGold are treated as and made to feel like they are a huge part of an even more vast family.

Most Ridiculous Wiki Edits Made by Congress

Congress is known for being filled with some interesting characters, but one of the most unique discoveries was made by software developer Ed Summers who started tracking the Wiki edits that members of congress made to Wikipedia and posting the more unusual edits on twitter.

Most of the changes that were made involved promotions or other changes in status of members of Congress, but there were also a number of more interesting ones, including a number of resume padders. One example, found in SF Gate, involves Tim Hueslkamp, a Republican from Kansas. Someone added a section calling him a “National Conservative Leader”. He’s alienated himself from party leaders recently and the twitter account does not name who made the edit, so it’s unclear what the editor’s exact motivations were.

Other edits made by members of Congress and their staff are more funny than anything else. For example someone added Harambe’s name to the list of political leaders whose assassination may be part of a conspiracy. Another edit added the phrase “not chicken” to the entry for Ham.

Other edits are more strange than funny or have some kind of political motivations. For example one editor removed the phrase that intelligent design and creationism are psuedo-scientific. In an article about torture, the phrase “enhanced interrogation techniques” was removed as a euphemism for torture.

These Wikipedia edits underline the importance of using qualified Wikipedia editors to make changes to  articles in order to make sure that information on the website remains factual and unbiased. Get Your Wiki is reputable service that will create and edit a Wikipedia page about you or your business easy.

It can also provide potential customers and clients with an easy to read biography or history that can be quickly found by any search engine. With the amount of benefits, it becomes particularly important to do it right.

Don Ressler Has Grown To Be A Boss

Don Ressler began his career as CEO of a small company called Intelligent Beauty. It wasn’t to long until Intelligent Beauty began branching other small companies out of it. This was due to the wonderful skills and mindset of Don Ressler. Don Ressler then went on the become CEO of several other small companies.

What Don Ressler really loved to do was engage in advertising and sales. He was very happy when he linked up with Adam Goldenberg. The two created an advertising branch within Intermix Media. Ressler and Goldenberg were bringing in millions of dollars in no time. They understood that online shopping was fairly new at this time, about 2004, and they knew people would be glad to shop right out of their home. This caused Ressler and Goldenberg to conduct most of their advertising online.

Intermix Media was then bought out a few years later. The new owners brought in a new advertising team. This meant that Don Ressler and Adam Goldenberg had to search out new opportunities and new heights.

Ressler and Goldenberg attempted to start a few businesses that involved selling products for skin care. They eventually dove into the weight loss industry and created a company called SENSA at They went the smart route and did not do this alone. They brought in a Dr. Alan Hirsch; he is a weight loss doctor, and Ressler and Goldenberg believed he would be perfect to oversee the entire operation.

SENSA went into an even more positive direction when Ressler and Goldenberg were able to hire the CEO of Intermix Media. SENSA soon developed amazing products with amazing advertising to go with them. In less than five years, Don Ressler and Adam Goldenberg brought in almost 50 million dollars. Market analysts could not believe this since the weight loss and skin care market at that time was not flourishing at all. In fact, many similar companies were going bankrupt or were already closed at that time.

Don Ressler and Goldenberg were happy to see all of their hard work paying off. They were also happy that all the failure they experienced in the past was not experienced in vain.
