Recently, CACI International Inc announced that William M. Fairl, President of U.S. Operations, 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 CDO while the company’s current COO, 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 CEO.
According to 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 VP in 1993, Senior VP in 1996, and Executive VP in 2001. He was named COO 2004 and became President of U.S. Operations in 2007, assuming responsibility for all of CACI’s domestic, federal, and state and local markets. He is instrumental to CACI’s mergers and acquisitions (M&A) program, workforce planning, recruiting, workforce diversity, and a variety of philanthropy initiatives.
In his new role as CDO, Mr. Fairl will focus his experience on accelerating CACI’s M&A activity with an aggressive approach to identifying, developing, and assessing acquisition targets.
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.”
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.”
“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,” added Allen.
