AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
SailPoint Technologies Holdings, Inc. (SAIL), the leader in enterprise identity governance, today announced the appointment of William Bock, current SailPoint Board member, to Chairman of the Board of Directors. In addition, Thoma Bravo will transition from three seats on the Board to one, consistent with its current ownership and rights under SailPoint’s charter. As a result, Marcel Bernard has resigned his board seat, effective September 21, 2018, and Seth Boro, a Managing Partner at Thoma Bravo, will serve out his term through SailPoint’s 2018 Annual Meeting on November 6, 2018. Chip Virnig, a Partner at Thoma Bravo and current SailPoint Board member, will be nominated for re-election at the Annual Meeting.
“We are incredibly proud that SailPoint represented Thoma Bravo’s first software IPO. As part of the continued transition from being privately-owned by Thoma Bravo to a publicly traded company, and one in which we are now a minority shareholder, we are reducing our board presence to one member. We believe SailPoint is well positioned in the enterprise identity governance market, and look forward to our continued involvement with the company as it continues to execute its growth strategy,” said Chip Virnig.
Mark McClain, SailPoint’s CEO and Co-founder, said, “We would like to thank Marcel, Seth and the entire Thoma Bravo team for all of the support they’ve provided since investing in SailPoint in 2014. We are pleased that Chip Virnig will continue as Thoma Bravo’s nominee to the Board and look forward to his and the entire Board’s continuing insights under the leadership of Bill Bock in his new position of Chairman.”
