Keep an eye out for this guy, Will Johnson. In-Q-Tel, the CIA’s venture arm, has appointed him a partner. He’ll be working out of a secretive office on Sand Hill Road, alongside Ben Choi, who we wrote about here.

No surprise these guys lay low. We asked our In-Q-Tel “contact” for more info about Will. The response: “He is out of pocket currently.”

With a name like Will Johnson, and a resume that lists conservative and non-edgy groups like Ernst & Young and Andersen Consulting, he may yet be able to fade into the background.

He worked in the technology groups of those companies, and did a stint at JP Morgan Partners, where he specialized in enterprise (corporate) software. As a Principal at In-Q-Tel over the past year, Will helped with investments in Nextreme Thermal Solutions, an embedded thermoelectric component company, and Initiate Systems, a provider of customer data integration software.
