CACI International Inc (NYSE:CACI) today announced the next step in its growth strategy to 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. 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 that has come about through organic growth as well as business and capabilities gained through acquisitions. These acquisitions include CACI’s November 2012 purchase of healthcare IT provider Emergint Technologies, Inc.; the July 2012 purchase of financial management and business services provider Delta Solutions and Technologies, Inc.; and the October 2011 purchase of Oracle e-Business services provider Advanced Programs Group, LLC.
The new Federal Civilian Solutions business group will be headed by 14-year CACI veteran Rick Dansey, who will focus on leading the company’s Federal Civilian, Healthcare, and Investigative and Litigation Support market strategies and capturing business across this broad client base. Mr. Dansey brings a strong track record as Senior Vice President that includes managing large-scale enterprise resource planning and business systems implementations. His contributions have been central to the growth of CACI’s Federal Civilian capabilities, and he played a key role in CACI’s acquisition of Emergint and Advanced Programs Group.
The new Business Systems Solutions business group will be headed by Valerie Lyons, who joined CACI as Senior Vice President in 2011 and who will focus on delivering Business Systems Solutions across CACI’s entire client base. Ms. Lyons has led the implementation of multiple business systems engagements that have grown CACI’s presence in this market and brought considerable productivity gains to its government clients. She has also been an essential contributor to CACI’s mergers and acquisitions (M&A) activities in its Business Systems market, most recently taking a lead role in the Delta acquisition.
Both business group leaders were recruited and developed into their roles by CACI Executive Vice President Gil Guarino, who informed the company of his intention to retire on October 1, 2012 and whose former organization, CACI’s Transformation Solutions Group, now becomes the two new business groups.
CACI Executive Chairman Dr. J.P. (Jack) London and CACI’s Board of Directors enthusiastically support the organizational alignment and conveyed their sincere gratitude for Mr. Guarino’s considerable and ongoing contributions to CACI. Mr. Guarino joined CACI in 2004 through the acquisition of the team he led at American Management Systems, Inc., where he had enjoyed 15 years of increasing leadership achievement. In his eight years with CACI, Mr. Guarino successfully developed a high-performing team that continues to deliver innovative client solutions and contribute importantly to the company’s growth and financial performance.
The new business groups report directly to CACI’s Chief Operating Officer and President of U.S. Operations, John Mengucci, who said, “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. 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.”
According to CACI President and Chief Executive Officer Dan Allen, “CACI continues to move quickly to seize opportunities in our addressable markets. 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.”

A member of the Fortune 1000 Largest Companies and the Russell 2000 Index, CACI provides dynamic careers for approximately 14,900 employees working in over 120 offices worldwide. Visit www.caci.com.
