Comvest Capital Appoints New Managing Director

April 03, 2017, 07:18 AM

Comvest Partners announced that Tom Goila has joined the Firm as a Managing Director in Comvest's direct lending group, Comvest Capital. Tom will be responsible for originating, structuring and managing debt investment opportunities.

Goila joins Comvest with over 15 years of experience financing sponsored and non-sponsored middle-market companies in a variety of specialized industries throughout the capital structure. Previously, Goila was a Director with Goldman Sachs Specialty Lending Group where he focused on originating, underwriting and structuring debt and minority equity transactions to middle-market companies. Prior to Goldman Sachs, Goila was with BNP Paribas, providing senior and junior capital to private equity sponsor backed middle-market healthcare companies. Goila started his finance career at First Union in the healthcare corporate and investment banking division in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Goila said, "Comvest has an outstanding track record and I'm excited to join their Team. I look forward to providing capital to quality companies through thoughtful and creative structuring. I am also excited to work with Jason Gelberd again after having spent eight years investing together at Goldman Sachs."

"We are very pleased to have Tom join Comvest," said Jason Gelberd, a Partner at Comvest. "We have very similar views on lending and, together with Dan Lee, Greg Reynolds, and Jon Huitink who share a common investing philosophy from their time together at Cerberus, I believe we are continuing to build an investment team with credit and risk insight shaped by institutions that have demonstrated to be best in class."
