Who the Hell is Herman Cain?

Who the Hell is Herman Cain?

Herman Cain 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 

• 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 hamburgers 
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
n on-politician side.

  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 affect the monetary 

  After reaching the top of the banking 
industry, he changed careers for a fourth time!

• 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).  Served as a commentator for Fox

  • Played a
Definitive role in the defeat of the Clinton health care
plan in 1996
  •   Senior Advisor of Dole/Kemp Campaign

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

Herman Cain has the most impressive resume of anyone who has ever run for the
