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.

"Over their eight-plus years with the firm, Seth and Holden have proven to be tremendous investment professionals," said Orlando Bravo, managing partner of Thoma Bravo. "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."

"Seth and Holden have contributed greatly to identifying, completing and managing many of our most successful investments," added managing partner Carl Thoma. "Their expertise and success, particularly in the software and technology sectors, have helped produce some of the most successful funds in our firm's history, and we're confident this promotion will help us continue to produce strong returns for our investors."

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.
