CACI appointed Kenneth Asbury as the company's president and chief executive officer on Wednesday. Asbury comes to CACI after 27 years of leading systems and services expansion as well as program delivery for Lockheed Martin. He previously oversaw Lockheed's Technical Operations, Mission Services, and Civil businesses, building a track record of delivering superior enterprise growth, customer value, and employee engagement, according to CACI.

"CACI's track record of growth and performance is second to none, and I look forward to taking on the opportunity for continued growth over the long term," said Asbury. "In the government systems and services market, nothing is more important than the clients we serve - particularly when it comes to supporting national priorities and national security. CACI has a client-focused culture. Its people have a deep understanding of their clients' critical missions, and deliver value and operational excellence. They are our best asset."

Wednesday's announcement underscores CACI's focus on "new business pursuits, operational excellence, and high-quality service for its clients," the company said.

The company then further announced an organizational restructuring, with CACI's corporate business development organization reporting directly to Asbury as president and CEO.

The CACI Board also thanked Daniel Allen for his service. Allen had been with CACI since March 2011. He will be departing the company to pursue personal interests.

CACI provides information solutions and services in support of national security missions and government transformation for Intelligence, Defense, and Federal Civilian clients. Dr. J.P. London, executive chairman and chairman of the board for CACI, said the company's Board of Directors is looking forward to working closely with Asbury as the company moves forward in "these times of opportunity as well as challenge."

"CACI has a long history of excellence in developing and delivering new business programs, and Ken is the individual to carry on this fine legacy," London said. "The Board has known Ken for some time, and he is the right choice to lead CACI going forward. He has the ideal blend of industry expertise and leadership experience to help drive our business goals regardless of the market conditions."
