Paul Cofoni was appointed president of CACI International Inc.'s federal division, just days after his former employer, Computer Sciences Corp., announced that he would retire
as head of its federal sector business Aug. 12.
At CACI, Cofoni will oversee all of CACI's U.S.-based operations in domestic, federal and state and local markets and will report to J.P. "Jack" London, CACI's chairman and CEO.
CACI conducted discussions with Cofoni over the last few months and made its offer to him recently, the company said. Cofoni's appointment completes CACI's search process for a replacement for Kenneth Johnson, who retired as president in November 2004. During the interim, London served as head of the company's domestic operations.
Cofoni has more than 30 years of senior-level executive experience in business development, mergers and acquisitions, strategic planning and extensive federal market operations. At CSC, federal sector revenues under Cofoni's leadership exceeded $4 billion in 2005. Prior to serving as president of CSC's federal sector, Cofoni was president of the company's technology management group.
Before joining CSC, Cofoni worked at General Dynamics Corp for 17 years.
"I am looking forward to working with Paul to broaden our penetration of the federal marketplace with CACI's expanding solutions and growing services capabilities," London said in a statement. "He has an excellent reputation in the federal marketplace, and we at CACI are quite proud to have him joining the company."
In the statement, Cofoni called CACI a "first-class operation with a long history of solid performance and growth."
"I'll be right at home at CACI, and I'm ready to go to work with their great team," he said.
Based in Arlington, CACI employs about 9,500 people and had revenue of more than $1.1 billion in its fiscal 2004. For the year ended June 30, the company expects revenue of about $1.6 billion. It is No. 17
