When CACI President and CEO Paul Cofoni was named as a Federal 100 Awards winner last week, there might have been an individual who took even more pride in the distinction than Cofoni – Jack London. After all, CACI’s Chairman – and former CEO – worked closely with Cofoni after the executive arrived from CSC in 2005 in order to ensure that the company’s next leader would continue CACI’s traditional for innovation and excellence.
The Fed 100 Award winners – historically not announced until the March 24 Awards Gala – were selected for being “agents of change” and contributions to the Federal IT market over the past year. London’s tenure as CEO was personified by an executive who often saw industry changes before others did (he notched a Fed 100 Award himself in 2004), and effectively adjusted his business accordingly. In the company press release, London hinted that seeing his successor recognized as an “agent of change” was gratifying at a professional and personal level.
“Paul Cofoni’s exceptional skills in leading and inspiring people help all of the company’s 11,600-plus employees focus on maintaining CACI as a national asset for national missions. His recognition confirms the strength of CACI’s contributions to our nation’s greatest challenges.”
The 19th Annual Federal Awards Gala will recognize Cofoni – and 99 other recipients – will be recognized March 24th at the Ritz-Carlton Tysons Corner.
