Thoma Bravo, LLC, a leading private equity investment firm, has promoted Seth Boro and Holden Spaht to managing partner. Both Boro and Spaht joined Thoma Bravo in 2005 as vice presidents in the firm's San Francisco office, and were promoted to partner in 2011. Boro and Spaht join current managing partners Orlando Bravo, Scott Crabill, Lee Mitchell and Carl Thoma as leaders of the firm.

"Seth has been instrumental in guiding the firm into very rewarding areas for our investors and has led some of our most meaningful transactions. Holden has shown incredible investment judgment and has demonstrated exceptional skill in building and growing a portfolio of profitable companies."

Boro joined Thoma Bravo after earning a master's of business administration from the Stanford Graduate School of Business. He received a Bachelor of Commerce degree from Queen's University in Kingston, Canada.

Spaht joined Thoma Bravo in 2005 from Morgan Stanley, where he had worked with that firm's buyout fund in London and its corporate finance team in San Francisco.
