Herman Cain's bio

Friday, October 21, 2011

* 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
non-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
impact the monetary system. 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).

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 may have the most impressive resume of anyone that has run for the presidency in the last half century.
