CACI Chairman Dr. J.P. (Jack) London Honored With Nathan Hale Award From Reserve Officers Association
Recognized for Outstanding and Dedicated Individual Service in the Interest of National Security
ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- CACI International Inc (NYSE:CACI) announced today that Dr. J.P. (Jack) London (Captain, USN, Retired), CACI Executive Chairman and Chairman of the Board, has been honored with the Nathan Hale Award from the Reserve Officers Association (ROA) at the organization's 90th anniversary celebration at the Willard Hotel in Washington, D.C. The award is given to prominent federal, state, and local government and civic leaders to recognize outstanding and dedicated individual service in the interest of national security, reflecting the patriotic dedication to America epitomized by Nathan Hale. Founded by General John J. Pershing, the ROA provides a wide range of professional and personal benefits to its membership and keeps reservists and their families apprised of important topics such as call-ups and legislative actions.
Dr. London is a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy (1959) and the Naval Postgraduate School (1967). He holds a doctorate in business administration conferred "with distinction" from The George Washington University (1971). During his 12 years of active duty as a regular officer (1959-1971) during the Cold War, he was a naval aviator and carrier pilot serving with U.S. Navy "hunter-killer" task forces arrayed against the Soviet Union's strategic nuclear submarine threat. At the height of the Vietnam War, he served as aide and administrative assistant to the Vice Chief of the Naval Material Command, Department of the Navy (1969-70). Dr. London left active duty in 1971 and joined the U.S. Navy Reserve, retiring as a captain in 1983, after having served as commanding officer of aeronautical engineering units with the Naval Air Systems Command, Washington, D.C.
Over his 40 years of service with the company, Dr. London's leadership has been instrumental in helping CACI grow from a small consulting firm into a worldwide information solutions and services company with more than 15,000 employees serving vital national needs in defense, intelligence, homeland security, and the modernization of government. His strategic vision and insight into the evolving trend lines of the government marketplace served as the foundation of the company's growth in rapidly changing business climates. The robust mergers and acquisition program Dr. London initiated has brought more than 50 acquisitions to CACI, including companies that have greatly strengthened CACI's position in the security and intelligence services markets and enhanced its support for Department of Defense initiatives and defense of the homeland. CACI'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. 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.
Today, CACI has revenue of $3.8 billion dollars and continues to capture new business in high-growth, high-priority areas of its large addressable market, with emphasis on the critical missions of customers in the intelligence, cyber, healthcare, business systems, and integrated security solutions arenas.
Commenting on the honor, Dr. London noted, "I am most humbled and appreciative to be the recipient of this award, named after one of our nation's greatest sons. It is also a fitting tribute to CACI's dedicated efforts to keep America safe and free. With nearly one quarter of our employees coming from the U.S. Armed Forces, we remain ever vigilant in doing work that is in the best interest of our remarkable servicemen and women."
Dr. Warren Phillips, Lead Director of CACI's board noted, "We congratulate Dr. London on receiving the Nathan Hale Award from the Reserve Officers Association. This recognition exemplifies the spirit of patriotism that has marked Jack's conduct over the years. And it reinforces CACI's consistent emphasis on developing solutions that directly support mission success for our forces worldwide."
