London, CEO and chairman of the board of CACI International, Inc. and GW alumnus, has received the Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) award for CEO of the Year. The award was presented to London during a class visit with EMBA students at GWs Virginia Campus on April 18.
We picked Dr. London for this award because, without a doubt, he is one of the most successful leaders in the Washington, D.C., region, said Robert Dyer, director of the EMBA program. Under Dr. Londons leadership, CACI has witnessed remarkable growth, from a small $3 million professional service organization to a $681 million company today, with a target of a billion by 2005. CACI and Jack London are synonymous with integrity.
London met with first- and second-year GW EMBA students and gave an hour presentation on Leadership and Accountability as part of the EMBA Speaker Series. He provided many examples of a CEOs role, citing integrity as a crucial component. As CEO, you are fully accountable, London said. You are the captain of the corporate ship, and though you may be an expert navigator, there are always hidden shoals and unexpected storms. Its up to you to safely guide the ship.
