James Woolsey is Chairman of Woolsey Partners LLC and a Venture Partner with Lux Capital anagement.  Over the course of a dozen years, Woolsey held presidential appointments in two Republican and two Democratic administrations, including one stint as undersecretary of the Navy and another as director of the Central Intelligence Agency under President Clinton, from 1993 to 1995. In recent years, Mr. Woolsey has become an influential voice in the energy debate. He is known for articulating the national security arguments for reducing dependence on fossil fuels and moving towards distributed generation.
