ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- CACI International Inc (NYSE:CACI) announced today that CACI Chairman of the Board Dr. J.P. (Jack) London has been inducted as the 2012 Hall of Fame laureate at the Greater Washington Government Contractor (GovCon) Awards at its gala held on November 1st in Washington, D.C. Dr. London was recognized for his lifetime achievement and long-term contributions to the industry at a gathering of over 1,000 industry colleagues at the Wardman Park Marriott Hotel. The GovCon Awards is the premier event honoring the leadership, innovation, and commitment to excellence of the people and businesses in the Washington, D.C. metro government contracting community. 2012 marks the 10th anniversary of these prestigious awards, which are sponsored by the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce, Professional Services Council, and Washington Technology.
Dr. London is the 10th inductee to the Hall of Fame. He also belongs to the Washington Business Hall of Fame and the Arlington, Virginia Chamber of Commerce Business Hall of Fame, both lifetime achievement awards honoring Dr. London's major positive impact on the business and civic life of these communities.
Dr. London's selection recognizes his achievement in growing CACI from a small consulting firm into a worldwide information solutions and services company serving vital national needs in defense, intelligence, homeland security, and the modernization of government. A market visionary, Dr. London was the architect of CACI strategies that continually positioned the company for growth in rapidly changing business climates, while also helping to expand the region's IT capabilities. London's creation and leadership of a robust mergers and acquisitions program has brought more than 50 acquisitions to CACI to date. The company's revenue has grown from $1.6 million in 1972, the year London joined CACI, to nearly $4 billion today. Dr. London's leadership in developing CACI's reputation for its culture of ethics and integrity is known throughout the industry.
The company's service as a national asset for national priorities is demonstrated by its dedicated focus on supporting the men and women in the U.S. Armed Forces, both in-theatre and when they return home. CACI's work with organizations such as Cause (Comfort for America's Uniformed Services) has helped serve the needs of wounded service members. And the company's award-winning Deploying Talent - Creating Careers program hires veterans with disabilities and provides them with opportunities to use their unique skill sets to build careers. In the arena of community service, the CACI Cares initiative is a company-wide effort to promote and advance philanthropic activities. After more than 50 years of service to the federal government and our nation, CACI Cares complements the company's business-driven initiatives.
In his remarks made when accepting the award, Dr. London thanked the near 15,000 people of CACI, pointing out, "One of the lessons I learned early was that the reason you lead is not to be admired, but rather it's because you admire and respect the people you lead. That's why I thank the remarkable employees of CACI - past, present, and future - who are on the front lines with our clients, who are the drivers of our innovation and the implementers of our goals. They embody CACI's reputation for its culture of integrity and excellence. They are the greatest part of CACI's success. For that, I extend my deepest appreciation - and admiration - to them all."
CACI President and Chief Executive Officer Dan Allen noted, "We all congratulate Dr. London on joining the Hall of Fame at the Greater Washington Government Contractor Awards. For more than 40 years, Jack has been a leader everyone at CACI emulates and respects. His induction recognizes the government contracting community's high esteem for his business acumen and the high ethical standards he champions."
