John Mengucci, President and CEO of CACI, Named to 2020 Wash100 for His Leadership in Securing Contract Awards and Closing on Strategic Acquisitions
Executive Mosaic is pleased to present John Mengucci, president and CEO of CACI International, as an inductee into the 2020 Wash100 Award for growing the company’s revenue through valuable contract awards and tactful acquisitions, which has continued to advance the company’s influence in the sector.
This marks Mengucci’s first Wash100 Award. Mengucci was appointed to his current role in June 2019, succeeding six-time Wash100 Award winner Ken Asbury. Since joining the company, Mengucci has led CACI through multiple contract awards, which has cemented the company’s influence within the federal government.
Most notably, Mengucci helped CACI secure a $1.9 billion contract from U.S. Customs and Border Protection in Nov. 2019. CACI will continue its efforts to modernize the mission-critical systems throughout the year.
Mengucci also supervised multimillion-dollar contracts to support a range of military missions. In Nov. 2019, CACI secured a potential five-year, $907 million task order to assist U.S. Army personnel’s analysis and management of intelligence that will be used to support the service branch’s missions in Afghanistan.
The company will integrate its analytic tools to help U.S. military participants in the NATO-led Resolute Support Mission avoid potential mission risks such as insider threats. The order falls under the Army Intelligence and Security Command’s Global Intelligence Support Service contract and represents new and continuing work for the company.
“CACI intelligence experts are prepared to use the most advanced intelligence analytical techniques and systems to protect our servicemembers and assets under the Resolute Support Mission,” said Mengucci.
Mengucci has continued to work closely with the U.S. Army throughout 2019, winning the company an additional $443 million task order to perform reverse-engineering work on improvised explosive devices for the service branch in Sept. 2019.
As part of the task order, CACI will prototype, replicate and exploit commercial-based IEDs and drones that have been encountered across the globe for nefarious purposes. Mengucci added that the company will apply its expertise to help the Army defeat emerging asymmetric threats.
Not only has CACI actively supported the U.S. Army, but the company has also secured multi-million dollar awards from other service branches, including the U.S. Air Force. Mengucci orchestrated a potential $438 million task order for Air Force Research Lab (ARFL) multidomain program support in Dec. 2019.
The task order, awarded through the Network-Centric Solutions-2 contract vehicle, includes the development of emerging technology, sustainment of the Air Force’s Distributed Common Ground System and other C4ISR initiatives and multidomain integration of operations and intelligence across air, cyber and space domains.
Mengucci will oversee CACI’s implementation of SAFE Agile practices to help AFRL enhance information security and execute new approaches to analyze, access and disseminate data across intelligence community and Air Force domains. The company will also provide support in other areas such as machine learning and artificial intelligence, signals and geospatial intelligence.
As CACI’s revenue continues to expand, Mengucci has allocated the profits to purchase technology companies, which will additionally grow the company’s capabilities and influence in the sector.
In Oct. 2019, Mengucci led the company’s acquisition of Next Century, Linndustries Shielding Specialties and Deep3. Next Century has provided predictive analytics, machine learning, data fusion and geospatial mapping support for the Department of Defense and the intelligence community.
Linndustries provides hardened systems designed to protect technology from electromagnetic interference. Deep3 delivers data analytics, cybersecurity, application development and digital transformation services to U.K. defense and national security agencies and will be integrated into CACI’s operations in the U.K.
CACI expects the acquisitions to be accretive to fiscal year 2020 and add about $3 million in net income and $50 million in revenue to the rest of the fiscal year.
Under Mengucci’s lead, the company has utilized its influence and increased revenue for philanthropic initiatives. Mengucci has funded students in their future career. CACI announced in Nov. 2019 that the company has worked to support students through the Ken Asbury Mentorship Program. CACI continues to help students connect with industry professionals and offers internship support for successful candidates.
“Proficiency in the languages of our adversaries and the battlespace is critical to U.S. national security,” said Mengucci. “CACI’s tailored language and cultural training programs provide vital tools and expertise to national security professionals carrying out this mission.”
Executive Mosaic congratulates CACI and John Mengucci for his 2020 Wash100 Award selection. Because of his efforts to advance CACI’s influence in the GovCon sector through major contract awards with various service branches, multiple acquisitions, and humanitarian efforts, proves that Mengucci is a significant figure in the industry.
