What you may not know about Herman Cain who is running for president....
He’s not a career politician (in fact he has never held political
office). He’s known as a pizza guy, but there’s a lot more to him. He’s
also a computer guy, a banker guy, and a rocket scientist guy.
Here’s his bio:
Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics.
Master’s degree in Computer Science.
Mathematician for the Navy, where he worked on missile ballistics
(making him a rocket scientist).
Computer systems analyst for Coca-Cola.
VP of Corporate Data Systems and Services for Pillsbury (this is the top
of the ladder in the computer world, being in charge of information
systems for a major corporation).
All achieved before reaching the age of 35. Since he reached the top of
the information systems world, he changed careers!
Business Manager. Took charge of Pillsbury’s 400 Burger King restaurants
in the Philadelphia area, which were the company’s poorest performers in
the country. Spent the first nine months learning the business from the
ground up, cooking hamburger and yes, cleaning toilets. After three
years he had turned them into the company’s best performers.
Godfather’s Pizza CEO. Was asked by Pillsbury to take charge of their
Godfather’s Pizza chain (which was on the verge of bankruptcy). He made
it profitable in 14 months.
In 1988 he led a buyout of the Godfather’s Pizza chain from Pillsbury.
He was now the owner of a restaurant chain. Again he reached the top of
the ladder of another industry.
He was also chairman of the National Restaurant Association during this
time. This is a group that interacts with government on behalf of the
restaurant industry, and it gave him political experience from the
Having reached the top of a second industry, he changed careers again!
Adviser to the Federal Reserve System. Herman Cain went to work for the
Federal Reserve Banking System advising them on how monetary policy
changes would affect American businesses.
Chairman of the Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank. He worked his way up
to the chairmanship of a regional Federal Reserve bank. This is only one
step below the chairmanship of the entire Federal Reserve System (the
top banking position in the country). This position allowed him to see
how monetary policy is made from the inside, and understand the
political forces that impact the monetary system.
After reaching the top of the banking industry, he changed careers for a
Writer and public speaker. He then started to write and speak on
leadership. His books include Speak as a Leader, CEO of Self, Leadership
is Common Sense, and They Think You’re Stupid.
Radio Host. Around 2007—after a remarkable 40 year career—he started
hosting a radio show on WSB in Atlanta (the largest talk radio station
in the country).
He did all this starting from rock bottom (his father was a chauffeur
and his mother was a maid). When you add up his accomplishments in his
life—including reaching the top of three unrelated industries:
information systems, business management, and banking—
STACK THAT UP AGAINST THE 'COMMUNITY ORGANIZER'....
Herman Cain may have the most impressive resume of anyone that has run
for the presidency in the last half century.
