CACI International Inc. announced today that Chairman of the Board Dr. J. Phillip London has released his new book: Character: The Ultimate Success Factor. The book is based on Dr. London’s personal, corporate, and military experiences, along with real-life case studies.
“I decided to write about character because of its central role in our personal, professional, and organizational success,” said Dr. London. “Character is a unique set of moral and ethical qualities that define what we believe in, what we stand for, and what we expect of ourselves and others. While a variety of factors form our abilities and influence the events in our lives, how individuals and organizations act on these qualities determines how far they will go.”
Dr. London also explains that changing how success is perceived is the first step in achieving it consistently. “Genuine success is never gained by unethical or unlawful means, for dubious purposes, or at great moral cost,” he said.
Norman Augustine, the former CEO and Chairman of Lockheed Martin, penned the foreword for Character: The Ultimate Success Factor. The book also features endorsements from Hall of Fame quarterback Roger Staubach, former Vietnam prisoner of war Commander Everett Alvarez, Jr., USN (Ret.), and Colonel Lee Ellis, USAF (Ret.).
All royalties will go to organizations supporting veterans with disabilities, for those who have bravely served our nation.
Dr. London served as CACI’s President and Chief Executive Officer from 1984 to 2007, and is considered to be the founder of the modern-era CACI. Dr. London is also the author of Our Good Name: A Company’s Fight to Defend Its Honor and Get the Truth Told About Abu Ghraib.
