March 25, 2019 – CACI International Inc announced today that Dr. J.P. (Jack) London, CACI Executive Chairman and Chairman of the Board, and a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy class of 1959, has received the U.S. Naval Academy 2019 Distinguished Graduate Award. The recognition, awarded by a Naval Academy Alumni Association panel chaired by former Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Jonathan W. Greenert ’75, USN (Ret.), honors graduates who have demonstrated a lifetime commitment to service, personal character, and distinguished contributions to our nation. Dr. London was honored with four other 2019 Distinguished Graduates recipients at a ceremony on March 22.
Dr. London is the third member of CACI’s Board of Directors to have received Distinguished Graduate recognition. Last year, current CACI Board member General William Scott Wallace, USA (Ret.) was honored with the U.S. Military Academy’s Distinguished Graduate award, and a former Board member, the late Admiral Thomas H. Moorer, USN (Ret.), former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was the recipient of the U.S. Naval Academy’s first Distinguished Graduate Award in 1999.
In his over 46 years of leadership at CACI, Dr. London has overseen the company’s growth from a small professional services firm to becoming a trusted IT partner to the U.S. Federal Government in support of critical national missions. CACI’s Board of Directors also has a rich legacy of leadership over the company’s 56-year history, with members that have included business visionaries, talented innovators, skilled military leaders, and veterans of high-level government service. The Board has been a leader in sustaining a company culture of ethics and integrity, and in 2015 established the Culture, Character, Integrity, and Ethics Committee, the first of its kind for a company on the New York Stock Exchange.
According to Dr. London, “On behalf of CACI and our Board of Directors, I am honored to be recognized as a U.S. Naval Academy Distinguished Graduate. The Academy instilled in me the importance of good character. It inspired me to champion the values of ethics and integrity, both personally and professionally, throughout my career. At CACI, our enduring success in behalf of our shareholders is built on our dedication to ethical character, national service, and patriotism that the Academy so powerfully represents, and so aptly imparts to every graduate.”
