Jack London, executive chairman for CACI International and the company’s CEO from 1983 to 2006, has been selected for an award that recognizes former Navy officers for contributing to the interests of the U.S. and its maritime services.

The 24-year Navy veteran accepted the Admiral of the Navy George Dewey Award from the Naval Order of the U.S. at the organization’s annual congress Saturday in Charleston, S.C., CACI said Monday.

“It is always a privilege to be able to represent the people of CACI in any way that advances the best interests of our great nation and the inspiring traditions of the U.S. Navy that are so integral to the story of America,” London said.

London served as an active duty Navy officer between 1959 and 1971 and then joined the Navy Reserve, where he retired as a captain in 1983.

Earlier this year, he was recognized for the Nathan Hale Award by the Reserve Officers Association for his work in the national security sector.
