CACI International Inc. is celebrating the start of its 60th year in business following another year of achievements spurred by the company’s support to its customers across the U.S. Government. Since its inception in 1962, CACI has played vital roles in national security, safeguarding troops, and supporting the country’s most critical needs. CACI’s enduring legacy and strength are attributed to its culture of ethics and integrity; innovative employees; and successfully investing in relevant and differentiated capabilities ahead of customer needs.
John Mengucci, CACI President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “CACI’s longevity is built upon the ingenuity and contributions of countless employees over the past 60 years. Our solid strategy, vision, culture, values, and talent have propelled us to continuously develop new technologies and provide expertise to help our customers advance their missions. I am deeply proud of our rich legacy and our people. We remain Ever Vigilant as a loyal partner standing with our customers to protect our country.”
CACI’s Entrepreneurial Spirit and History
CACI was founded by two visionaries, the late Herb Karr and Harry Markowitz, who began the company by leveraging SIMSCRIPT, a trailblazing computer simulation language that they helped to develop. In its early years, CACI developed simulation-based technologies for clients such as IBM and the U.S. Navy.
Over the years, many leaders have contributed to CACI’s success, including and most notably Dr. J.P. (Jack) London, a former President and CEO and Executive Chairman and Chairman of the Board, who spent nearly 50 years with the company. Dr. London, who passed away in January 2021, grew CACI from a small professional services firm into a multi-billion-dollar powerhouse.
Today, the company’s growth strategy has garnered CACI a spot on the Fortune 1000, with $6 billion in revenue and approximately 22,000 employees based at its corporate headquarters in Reston, Virginia, and at more than 150 other offices around the world. Under Mr. Mengucci’s leadership, CACI has achieved several accolades for its technology offerings, including three Edison Awards and several innovation awards for modernizing government technologies.
In recognition of CACI’s leadership and culture, the company has been named a World’s Most Admired Company by Fortune for 11 years and a Top Workplace USA by Energage.
A Look Ahead
In its 60th year, as modern warfare looks more to bits and bytes and not solely to bombs and bullets, CACI remains at the forefront of delivering network and IT modernization; leveraging digital solutions and Agile-at-scale practices to modernize systems and applications; providing software defined electronic warfare (EW), signals intelligence (SIGINT), and counter-unmanned aircraft technologies (C-UAS); advancing groundbreaking space technology and photonics-based capabilities; deploying NSA-compliant Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) technology for secure communications; offering mission support; and much more.
These advancements in technology and expertise have resulted in CACI making great strides in winning expansive, more sustainable contracts, including the $1.88 billion Border Enforcement Applications for Government Leading Edge IT, or BEAGLE, contract award to support Customs and Border Protection; the $1.5 billion National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency contract to provide transport and cybersecurity services; the $1.4 Billion Defense Threat Reduction Agency task order to counter and deter a variety of threats; and several others.
“We have much to be proud of in looking back these past six decades, and I am even more confident in our future,” continued Mr. Mengucci. “Leveraging our strategy focused on long-term growth through high-value expertise and technology for our customers, we are poised to create the next generation of unique capabilities and lead the way for our customers, our nation, and our shareholders.”
