NDIA Board Chair Punaro honors memory of CACI’s Jack London
ARLINGTON, VA – The following is a statement from Arnold Punaro, chairman of the board of the National Defense Industrial Association, on Jack London, executive chairman of CACI International Inc., who died Jan. 18 at age 83.
“It is hard to imagine the federal technologies industry without Jack London. It is an industry he helped create. CACI was just 10 years old when Jack joined in 1972, and anyone who knows CACI knew Jack London, and vice versa.
“Under Jack’s leadership, CACI made nearly 80 acquisitions that brought the company into homeland security, intelligence and national defense. CACI is an integral part of everything we do in government, and it will be a large part of Jack’s legacy.
“I was privileged to work with Jack, both in the business world and in his philanthropic endeavors. He and his wife Jennifer were mainstays in supporting our troops and their families. His Navy service was exemplary. His books on leadership and character are highly impactful and he was respected throughout our industry for his integrity. He was a good friend and mentor to all of us who followed his leadership as one of the icons in our field. We not only have lost a pillar in federal IT; I have lost a dear friend. My sincere condolences to Jennifer and Jack’s family as well as the CACI family.”
