Kagle began his business career working at General Motors, and received a B.S. in Electrical and Mechanical Engineering from General Motors Institute (renamed Kettering University) in 1978. He received his M.B.A. from Stanford Graduate School of Business in 1980.

Before his work at Benchmark, Kagle was a partner at Technology Venture Investors. Prior to his 12 years at TVI, Kagle worked for the Boston Consulting Group.
