ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CACI International Inc (NYSE:CACI) announced today that William M. Fairl, President of U.S. Operations, has notified the company of his intention to retire effective September 1, 2012. Beginning January 1, 2012, in order to provide for an efficient and effective leadership transition to his successor, Mr. Fairl will assume the position of Chief Development Officer while the company’s current Chief Operating Officer, Daniel D. Allen, will assume the role of President of U.S. Operations. Mr. Fairl and Mr. Allen will report directly to Paul M. Cofoni, President and Chief Executive Officer.
According to Mr. Cofoni, “Bill’s new role as Chief Development Officer and the transition of CACI U.S. Operations leadership to Dan is the result of succession planning by our top management team and the CACI Board of Directors. These two leaders meld an exceptional range of vision and experiences with a united commitment to drive the company to the next level of performance while remaining true to our culture of values and integrity.”
Mr. Fairl joined CACI in 1987 as a Program Manager. He was promoted to Vice President in 1993, Senior Vice President in 1996, and Executive Vice President in 2001. He was named Chief Operating Officer in 2004 and became President of U.S. Operations in 2007, assuming responsibility for all of CACI’s domestic, federal, and state and local markets. Under Mr. Fairl’s leadership, the company accelerated its mission-critical services to support the U.S. government’s mission in homeland security, counterterrorism, and modernizing government services. He is instrumental to CACI’s mergers and acquisitions (M&A) program, workforce planning, recruiting, workforce diversity, and a variety of philanthropy initiatives. Mr. Fairl’s strategy and vision significantly contributed to the company’s phenomenal growth and consistent record performance.
In his new role as Chief Development Officer, Mr. Fairl will focus his considerable experience on accelerating CACI’s M&A activity with an aggressive approach to identifying, developing, and assessing acquisition targets. He will also provide executive oversight, including customer interaction, for the company’s major recompetes.
“This transition is a natural evolution of our long-term strategic planning,” Mr. Fairl said. “I am looking forward to my continued association with CACI and to supporting a smooth transition. During my 24 years with the company, CACI has evolved as a leader in our industry. While I’m proud of what we have accomplished, I am confident that my contributions in my new role as Chief Development Officer will help take the company to even greater heights.”
Mr. Allen joined CACI as Chief Operating Officer in March 2011 to oversee the company’s four main business groups. He brings nearly 30 years of progressively responsible organizational leadership positions within the intelligence and information technology industry. Prior to joining the company, Mr. Allen served as Sector Vice President and General Manager of Northrop Grumman Intelligence Systems Division, the largest division in Northrop Grumman’s Information Systems Sector. Mr. Allen’s strategy, vision, and focus on operational excellence have significantly contributed to CACI’s success. He is highly respected in the Intelligence Community and throughout CACI’s marketplace, and is committed to delivering innovation and value to customers supporting the nation’s most vital missions, especially in the areas of intelligence and cyberspace. In his new role as President of U.S. Operations, Mr. Allen will assume leadership of the U.S. Operations growth strategy, addressable market opportunities, and operations execution. He will leverage the company’s agility to gain market share as opportunities emerge, and drive the innovation that provides added value to CACI solutions for its customers.
Mr. Cofoni commented, “CACI’s Board of Directors and I are confident in Dan’s vision and experience to lead our U.S. Operations to even greater success. Dan will position the company to pursue new opportunities to gain market share and grow the company. We are excited about the distinctive solutions and value we will continue to bring to our customers under Dan’s leadership.”
Mr. Allen said, “I greatly appreciate the confidence of Paul and the CACI Board of Directors. I am proud to expand my contributions to CACI and provide the leadership to expand the innovative CACI solutions that are critical to our nation. I am committed to continuing the excellent partnership with Paul and Bill to drive CACI’s momentum on our path of exceptional growth and success.”
