CACI International (NYSE: CACI) is forming new federal civilian solutions and business systems solutions businesses as Gil Guarino, executive vice president of the former transformation group, informed the company on Oct. 1 he plans to retire.
The company said Senior Vice President Rick Dansey will lead the federal civilian business and SVP Valerie Lyons will lead business systems.
The two segments will form from the former transformation unit on Jan. 1.
CACI values the federal civilian solutions market at $72 billion and the business systems solutions market at $8 billion.
Dan Allen, president and CEO, said CACI is aiming to leverage organic growth and acquisitions to pursue opportunities in the civilian and business systems sectors.
“The success of our business in CACI’s federal civilian/healthcare/litigation support and business systems markets drove our decision to give more autonomy, focus, and resources to the individual teams overseeing these areas, ” said John Mengucci, chief operating officer and president of U.S. operations.
Guarino joined CACI in 2004 upon that company’s acquisition of American Management Systems, where he had worked for 15 years, and Allen credited Guarino with spurring the new group formations.
“Our new federal civilian solutions and business systems solutions business groups are the culmination of carefully planned leadership succession and the recommendations of retiring Executive Vice President Gil Guarino.”
The group led by Dansey, a 14-year veteran, will focus on market strategies and acquiring business in the civilian, healthcare and investigative and litigation support segments.
CACI said Dansey helped carry out the company’s acquisitions of healthcare data analysis firm Emergint, which closed earlier this month, and Oracle e-Business services provider Advanced Programs Group, which closed last year.
Lyons, who joined CACI in 2011 as SVP, will lead a group focusing on delivering business systems to the company’s clients.
The company credited her with growing its share of the business systems market and for helping lead merger and acquisition activity in that segment, specifically the company’s buy of Delta Solutions and Technologies.
CACI said it made the reorganization with the goal of continuing growth in the civilian and business systems market through both organic and M&A avenues.
CACI cited its purchases of Emergint, Delta and Advanced Programs Group in its growth pursuit.
