President and CEO
In 2003, CACI adopted “Ever Vigilant” as both its motto and tagline. “For our customers, our motto conveys CACI’s commitment to their success and being diligent in meeting their needs in an ever-changing world,” says president and CEO Ken Asbury. “For the people who represent CACI daily, it’s a statement about how we value their dedication and performance.”
Words of Wisdom: “Do your homework — understand your customers, how they buy, the major players and competitors.”
Among its employees, CACI aims to encourage both innovation and entrepreneurship. Since the company launched a mentoring program for all employees in 1998, the program has grown steadily. Employees reach out to each other from every geographic location by email, phone and Skype, and leverage mentoring relationships as sounding boards for career success. Mentors at CACI range from team leads to members of the executive team, including Asbury, and work to create an environment where ideas, questions and concerns are openly discussed.
Through the CACI Cares philanthropy and volunteer program, the company provides opportunities for employees to connect and unite around important causes. “We provide opportunities and encourage our employees to volunteer as individuals and groups in three key areas: serving those who served, educating the leaders of tomorrow and fostering community citizenship,” says Asbury. Local organizations that CACI has supported include USO-Metro, Project Healing Waters, Wreaths Across America, CAUSE and Final Salute.
