Paul Cofoni

ExecutiveBiz singled out CACI (NYSE: CACI) CEO Paul Cofoni as a “Person to Watch in 2011.”

Here’s why:

“Paul Cofoni has more than a few reasons to celebrate lately; his company picked up several major defense wins.

“This month alone, CACI won a prime position on the U.S. Special Operations Command’s $1.5 billion Global Battlestaff and Program Support contract. ‘One of the keys to CACI’s successful growth strategy is our ability to win and aggressively compete with the defense industry’s best on large contract vehicles like [the GBPS task order award], ‘ said Cofoni, CACI CEO.

“That award will see CACI, along with four other companies, manage acquisition programs. Part of that effort, worth $25 million, has CACI assist the US Special Operations Command Program Executive Office for Special Operations Forces Warrior Systems.

“Other recent key wins include a $29 million task order to build new computer and automated application systems for the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol’s Passenger System Program Office. ‘The threats to America’s borders and homeland are always present, and CACI works at the technological heart of efforts to counter these dangers, ‘ Cofoni said in November. ‘We are able to provide the expertise in support of CBP’s mission of keeping terrorists and their weapons out of the United States, ‘ he added.

“In the midst of those wins, Cofoni has continued CACI’s push into strategic acquisitions, in areas such as energy, cybersecurity, healthcare, and intelligence. Recently, the company announced it would buy Applied Systems Research, a Fairfax, Va.-based firm with expertise in the intelligence space. Before then, CACI purchased TechniGraphics, a Wooster, Ohio-based firm that provides geospatial services to intelligence customers.

“Those acquisitions, coupled with solid award wins, explain the company’s strong first quarter showing for fiscal year 2011. If the company’s strong early growth is any indication, Cofoni will see CACI move toward even greater revenue gain throughout the year to come.”
