Arlington, Va. -- CACI International announced on Wednesday that Jack London -- who served as its president, CEO and executive chairman for 23 year -- has died at the age of 83. London was a pioneer in the region’s government technology sector. He had been serving as chairman of the board and executive of CACI at the time of his death. “He was a true pioneer in the federal contracting industry, drawing from his military service to set the standard for leading with ethics and integrity. He set the bar high for business leaders across our industry, developing a successful business that continuously excelled and stayed strong through more than 50 years of changes in the federal landscape,” said John Mengucci, president and CEO of CACI.

o Bethesda-based Aledade Raises $100 Million in D Round

Bethesda, Md. -- Aledade, a Bethesda-based startup that backs independent physicians’ practices, has raised $100 million in its D round. Meritech Capital led the round, with participation from new investors Tiger Global Management and IVP, along with returning investor OMERS Growth Equity. Aledade has developed a large network of physician-led Accountable Care Organizations, entities originally established as a means to cut Medicare expenses. ACOs are groups of doctors and healthcare providers who work together to provide high quality care with a focus on efficiencies, costs and patient outcomes. Aledade, using various tools, applications and technologies, shares in the risk and reward of value-based contracts with the independent practices. “This impressive show of support from investors proves that value-based care led by independent primary care, embracing risk, is the right path forward for American health care,” said Farzad Mostashari, CEO and co-founder. “We are thrilled to put these resources to work by helping more primary care professionals enter risk-taking arrangements with all kinds of payers, reinforcing our tech platform in the face of nationwide growth, and innovative projects to improve the health of patients across the country.”
