Greg Brenneman is joining CCMP Capital Advisors as chairman and a member of the private equity firms investment committee, effective Sept. 30, according to Mr. Brenneman and Steve Murray, president and CEO of CCMP Capital.
Mr. Brenneman is replacing Jeff Walker who retired as chairman in June. However, Mr. Brenneman will focus more on deal origination and execution than Mr. Walker, whose role was more concerned with fundraising. CCMP closed its CCMP Capital Investors II LP at $3.4 billion in September 2007.
Mr. Brenneman is the first executive with operating or CEO expertise to join CCMPs eight-member executive committee. He was CEO of Quiznos, a CCMP portfolio company. He will remain executive chairman of the Quiznos board.
