Our Team

Joel Jones

Joel Jones, a Senior Associate out of Los Angeles at SierraConstellation Partners, brings with him 7 years of experience across management consulting, proprietary equity trading, private equity, and corporate finance. His past work has spanned an array of industries, including Consumer Products, Clean Tech, Healthcare, Media, and Software.

Prior to joining SierraConstellation Partners, Joel served as a fractional CFO to startups, focusing on those with e-commerce and SaaS business models. In this role, he led financial modeling, FP&A, and cash flow management functions for his clients while providing strategic and capital-raising advisory services.

Joel holds a BA in Applied Mathematics and Economics from Vanderbilt University and an MBA from the UCLA Anderson School of Management.

Before pursuing his MBA, Joel was a proprietary trader at Trillium Trading in New York. At Trillium, he utilized his quantitative background and financial expertise to manage the firm’s capital in short-term trades across US equity markets.

Joel enjoys snowboarding, scuba diving, and forever believing that he is just one swing tweak away from being a decent golfer. A former D-I track and cross country athlete, he now gets most of his mileage on walks with his beloved dog. Having grown up in central New Jersey, he bleeds green for the Philadelphia Eagles but has adopted his wife’s hometown Dodgers since his move to the west coast.
