Jim Wilson

OPERATING PARTNER

Jim provides sales and market entry strategy advice for Costanoa portfolio companies.

Why Venture Capital?

After working with Greg and Mark before, I jumped at the opportunity to work in close collaboration with the Costanoa team and its portfolio companies to help develop their sales strategy and build their sales teams. I enjoy leveraging my 25 years of experience in diverse technology industries to support Costanoa’s founders.

Experience

Previously, I was the VP of World Wide Sales at Sumo Logic, where I managed all aspects of the sales strategy including multiple routes to market, international operations, and sales operations. Before Sumo Logic, I was SVP at NICE Systems where I managed the integration of an acquired company Merced Systems into NICE. Before joining NICE, I ran sales at Merced and held executive positions at Microsoft, Groove Networks, Inktomi, and Parametric Technology.

Education

B.S. in Aeronautical and Mechanical Engineering from the University of California, Davis

Outside of Work

When I’m not in the office, you can find me spending time with my wife and two children. I love traveling and have extensive experience abroad having lived in Singapore and South Korea. I opened offices in the UK, Singapore, India, Australia, South Korea, Malaysia, and Indonesia and am passionate about building international operations.
