Since becoming CEO in 2013, Ken Asbury has built an executive team that have brought backgrounds at larger government contractors. Asbury himself had a long career at Lockheed Martin. His chief operating officer, John Mengucci also Lockheed Martin experience.
DeEtte Gray, president of U.S. operations, is the former president of the intelligence and security sector for BAE Systems.
Other hires include Mike Gaffney, executive vice president of business development, Mike Lewis, chief development officer, and Matt Allard, senior vice president and division group manager, space operations and resiliency.
The strong management team is a critical component of CACI’s strategy to win new business, deliver operational excellence and grow organically and through acquisitions.
The team has overseen the integration of CACI’s largest acquisition, L-3 National Security Solutions, which brought 4,000 employees and $1 billion in annual revenue. Earlier there was the deal Six3 Systems acquisition which brought in significant cyber security and intel capabilities.
As the company has grown, the team has led restructuring activities to make the most out of the new capabilities it has acquired. For example, the new business development team has captured a $1.7 billion contract with the U.S. Joint Improvised Threat Defeat Organization. That is an example of a contract the company wouldn’t have pursued before.
The goal, according to the company, is to delivery better results to the customer.
