Posted by: jillw in: Lane News - B2B & Financial Services -


LANE, a national, independent agency specializing in public relations, digital marketing and investor relations, has received a Spotlight Award for excellence in investor relations by the Portland Metro chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA Portland).

LANE received the award for a public and investor relations campaign it executed for Thoma Bravo, a private equity firm in Chicago and San Francisco that specializes in application and infrastructure software and technology-enabled services. The campaign was strategized and executed around the firm’s latest fundraise, Thoma Bravo Fund XI, in May 2014.

Through a strategic public relations campaign, LANE secured coverage of Thoma Bravo’s proven investment strategy and new fund in every media outlet the agency targeted, including a feature story from New York Times DealBook. Thoma Bravo was ultimately able to secure financial commitments totaling $3.65 billion, or 146 percent of Fund XI’s intended goal.
