CACI U.S. Operations president announces retirement plan

William Fairl, president of U.S. Operations at CACI International Inc., will retire effective September 1, 2012, the company announced today.

Beginning January 1, 2012, in order to provide for an efficient and effective leadership transition to his successor, Fairl will assume the position of chief development officer while the company's current chief operating officer, Daniel Allen, will assume the role of president of U.S. Operations.

Fairl and Allen will report directly to Paul Cofoni, president and CEO, according to the Dec. 12 company announcement.

Cofoni called the transition the result of succession planning by the company’s top management team and the CACI board of directors.

Fairl joined CACI in 1987 as a program manager. He was promoted to vice president in 1993, senior vice president in 1996, and executive vice president in 2001.

He was named COO in 2004 and became president of U.S. Operations in 2007, assuming responsibility for all of CACI's domestic, federal, and state and local markets.

In his new role as chief development officer, Fairl will focus on accelerating CACI's M&A activity with an aggressive approach to identifying, developing, and assessing acquisition targets. He will also provide executive oversight, including customer interaction, for the company's major recompete contracts.

In his new role, Allen will assume leadership of the U.S. Operations growth strategy, addressable market opportunities, and operations execution. He will leverage the company's agility to gain market share as opportunities emerge, and drive the innovation that provides added value to CACI solutions, the announcement said.

Allen joined CACI as COO in March 2011 to oversee the company's four main business groups. He brings nearly 30 years of organizational leadership positions within the intelligence and IT industry.

Prior to joining the company, Allen served as sector vice president and general manager of Northrop Grumman Intelligence Systems Division, the largest division in Northrop Grumman's Information Systems Sector.

CACI International, of Arlington, Va., ranks No. 14 on Washington Technology’s 2011 Top 100 list of the largest federal government contractors.
