Greg Bohlen, who spent the past two years as director of private equity coverage group at UBS Warburg Investment Banking, is taking over as chief financial officer at The Aurora Funds.
The move comes after Aurora recently closed on its new $85 million fourth fund.
Aurora also promoted Doug Gooding to principal from associate, and he will focus on life science investments.
Bonnie McCullough, who had been controller, was named vice president of finance.
“We have been fortunate enough to raise a successful fund and to continue adding to our team and our portfolio companies,” said Scott Albert, the firm’s managing general partner, in a statement.
Albert said Bohlen brings both merger and acquisition and relationships with other venture capitalists will be a boost to Aurora.
“Greg’s impressive financial background and extensive experience with the venture capital community position him as an ideal addition to the Aurora team,” Albert said.
Bohlen also has worked for Paine Webber, J.C. Bradford and Merrill Lynch.
Aurora has made investments in Stemco, StrikeIron and Metabolon so far this year.
