Paul Cofoni has been tapped to replaced Dr. J.P. “Jack“ London as CEO of CACI. Dr. London will stay on board as Chairman.

CACI's Cofoni Replaces London as CEO - top government contractors - best government contracting eventA former Naval Officer, Dr. London's leadership brought stunning growth to CACI, and led CACI’s rapid entrée into the information security and Intelligence Community arenas. Cofoni has big shoes to fill as he steps into the CEO role as CACI flourishes through its fourth decade of growth.

Dr. London turned CACI into a voracious buyer, making 35 deals since 1993, including acquisition of two firms just this year. “The most important thing to me,“ Dr. London said when asked in a 2005 interivew about his acquisition strategy, “is the people and the business culture; their view of what they do in the market place and their attitude toward the government contracting arena. I am obviously interested in their skill sets and technology and customer relations, but I’m very keen on cultural attitudes of an organization.“

Prior to joining CACI, Cofoni was President, Federal Sector, of Computer Sciences Corporation. Federal Sector revenues under Cofoni exceeded $5B in 2005, according to CACI's website. In a speech last November to shareholders, he was optimistic about CACI’s continued growth. “Congress is solidly behind strong funding for our clients,“ Cofoni said to shareholders. “We are strategically positioned in our markets, and offer advanced and innovative solutions aligned with our customers' highest priorities ““ defense, intelligence, homeland security, and government transformation.“
