CACI International, Inc, in looking at the next step in growth strategy, will pursue opportunities in its $72 billion Federal Civilian and $8 billion Business Systems markets by forming business groups dedicated to these markets, effective January 1, 2013. CACI Executive Vice President Gil Guarino, who retired on October 1, 2012, has recruited and mentored Rick Dansey and Valerie Lyons to head the two groups. The new business groups report directly to John Mengucci, CACI’s Chief Operating Officer (COO) and President of U.S. Operations.
“The success of our business in CACI’s Federal Civilian/ Healthcare/ Litigation Support and Business Systems markets drove our decision to give more autonomy, focus, and resources to the individual teams overseeing these areas,” said Mengucci. “Our new Federal Civilian Solutions and Business Systems Solutions business groups are the culmination of carefully planned leadership succession and the recommendations of retiring Executive Vice President Gil Guarino. They represent a continuity of leadership and operations that will be seamless to clients. Rick Dansey and Val Lyons bring solid credentials and strong client relationships to their new roles.”
Fourteen year CACI veteran Rick Dansey will head the new Federal Civilian Solutions business group, focusing on leading the company’s Federal Civilian, Healthcare, and Investigative and Litigation Support market strategies and capturing business across this broad client base. Valerie Lyons, who joined CACI as Senior Vice President in 2011, will head the new Business Systems Solutions business group, focusing on delivering Business Systems Solutions across CACI’s entire client base.
The new groups will build on the expansion of CACI’s broad Federal Civilian, specialized Healthcare and Investigative and Litigation Support, and Business Systems work. The acquisitions include CACI’s purchase of healthcare IT provider Emergint Technologies, Inc. in November 2012, the purchase of financial management and business services provider Delta Solutions and Technologies, Inc. in July 2012, and the purchase of Oracle e-Business services provider Advanced Programs Group, LLC in October 2011.
“CACI continues to move quickly to seize opportunities in our addressable markets,” said CACI President and Chief Executive Officer Dan Allen. “In our $72 billion Federal Civilian and $8 billion Business Systems markets, we are capitalizing on organic and M&A growth by establishing our Federal Civilian Solutions and Business Systems Solutions business groups, led by highly experienced CACI leaders, to provide dedicated resources and personnel that will accelerate our growth momentum. This is an important component of our strategy for continually positioning CACI to add value to our clients’ critical missions and deliver top returns for our shareholders.”
Dr. J.P. (Jack) London, CACI Executive Chairman, and CACI’s Board of Directors supported the organizational alignment, conveying their sincere gratitude for Guarino’s considerable and ongoing contributions to CACI since his joining in 2004.
