ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CACI International Inc (NYSE MKT: CACI) announced that the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce has awarded CACI Executive Chairman and Chairman of the Board Dr. J.P. (Jack) London its Lifetime Distinguished Service Award at the organization’s awards luncheon on July 19th. The award recognizes Dr. London for his business leadership role in helping veterans succeed in business in the greater Washington, DC region.
Dr. London served as CACI’s President and Chief Executive Officer for 23 years and became Executive Chairman in 2007. Under Dr. London’s leadership, CACI has grown from a small professional services consulting firm to become a pacesetter in information technology (IT) solutions and services across markets in North America and Western Europe. He is known as the founder of the modern-day CACI.
Under Dr. London’s leadership, the company has consistently supported programs to recruit, hire, and support veterans in its workforce. CACI was recognized by President Obama at the White House for its support of the Joining Forces initiative that serves America’s military families. Most recently, the company’s contributions to veterans programs have been recognized by Forbes as a Top Employer for Veterans, by Civilianjobs.com as a Most Valuable Employer for Military, by Military Times as a “Best for Vets” Employer, and by GI Jobs as a Top 100 Military Friendly Employer.
A veteran himself, Dr. London’s steadfast commitment to championing veterans’ success in their return to civilian life spans more than four decades. He regularly speaks to veterans throughout the nation about leadership, opportunity, and the fundamental importance of character. Proceeds from Dr. London’s book, Character: The Ultimate Success Factor, are donated to CAUSE (Comfort for America’s Uniformed Services), the wounded warriors support organization. Dr. London has served on CAUSE’s board of directors since the organization’s inception in 2003.
“It is an honor to be recognized by the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce for CACI’s commitment to serving America’s military men and women,” said Dr. London. “We take great pride in our strong veteran recruitment program and history of hiring veterans. The experience, leadership, values, and work ethic veterans gain through their service plays a major role in setting them up for success in their civilian careers. As a U.S. Navy veteran, it is my privilege to offer fellow veterans an opportunity to achieve that success at CACI.”
Ken Asbury, CACI’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “On behalf of the people of CACI, more than a quarter of whom are veterans, I would like to congratulate Dr. London on receiving this award from the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce. Dr. London’s dedication to serving those who serve has contributed to CACI’s consistent recognition as a top employer for veterans.”
