Jack London Keynotes CACI’s Celebration of 50 Years of Business

Jack London

CACI International Inc. commemorated 50 years of business last night at the U.S. Library of Congress, celebrating a commitment to entrepreneurship sparked by Harry Markowitz and Herb Karr who first drafted the business on a park bench in 1962.

Jack London, the iconic leader and company stalwart for the past 38 years, keynoted the evening and offered a uniquely personal history and vision forward for the defense, intelligence, homeland security, IT modernization and business transformation company.

London served as president and CEO for 23 years prior to becoming executive chairman in 2007. As chief executive, he oversaw 50 acquisitions and largely transformed the small professional services consultant into the tier-1 global contractor it is today.

The IT leader’s nearly 14,000 employees now generate $3.5 billion in yearly revenue and innovation remains a central company tenet. President and CEO Paul Cofoni told ExecutiveBiz in a December interview, “I’ve been reminding everyone that every day is a new day and we have to get up, compete and fight hard to continue building the organization and our capabilities.”

Cofoni said leaders including Dan Allen, president of  U.S. operations who was succeeded by John Mengucci as U.S. chief operating officer in February, inherit the company culture and catalyze it into further growth.

And that remains the constant after 50 years. As Cofoni and London signed off on a recent leadership letter: “Building on the past. Creating the present. Confident in the future.”
