Two new members have joined VantagePoint Venture Partners. Coming onto the cleantech investment team are R. James Woolsey, a new venture partner, and David Edwards, who will be a partner.

Woolsey served as the Director of the CIA in the Clinton Administration from 1993 to 1995, following a decade of government service in other roles. Subsequently, he held positions in private industry, and began advising VantagePoint in 2006. He has also served as a foreign policy advisor for John McCain during his current presidential bid.

Edwards is a former equity research analyst at Morgan Stanley, where he focused on cleantech. He also previously worked as a partner for Charles River Ventures.

Along with the two new partners, VantagePoint also announced that it had promoted Marc van den Berg to the position of managing director.
