Companies keep establishing a presence in South Florida. The latest is private equity investment firm Thoma Bravo.

The company will open a Miami office in the second half of 2021, adding to its growing San Francisco and Chicago locations. To support the new office, several team members will relocate to Miami, including partner Chip Virnig. The firm, with more than $73 billion in assets as of Sept. 30., is also looking for Miami-based employees as well.

“We are thrilled to expand our business to this vibrant city as it rapidly evolves into a major financial and technology hub,” said Virnig (pictured left) in a press release. “We are proud to join Miami’s flourishing investment community and look forward to further driving innovation and growth in the city.”

With its focus on software and technology-enabled services, the company said it plans to partner with “the existing management teams of fast-growing, innovative software companies and tap into the region’s rich and growing community of tech entrepreneurs.”

“At Thoma Bravo, we are always looking forward. Building on our firm’s recent success, including the largest fundraise in Thoma Bravo’s history and continued growth across our portfolio, we are excited to establish a presence in Miami,” said Orlando Bravo, founder and managing partner, in the release (pictured above). “The office will not only reinforce our presence in the U.S., but will also serve as the firm’s first foothold on the East Coast, providing a gateway to other national and global markets.”

Editor-in-Chief

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
