Herman Cain Net Worth $18 Million
Former Godfather’s Pizza CEO and 2012 presidential candidate,Herman Cain has an estimated net worth of $18 million. The retired businessman and lobbyist from Georgia declared in May of 2011 that he would seek the Republican nomination for the presidential election of 2012. He came to politics late in life, climbing to prominence after a public debate in 1994 with President Bill Clinton within the president’s strategy to reform health care.
Cain grew up in Atlanta, Georgia and has a degree in math from Morehouse College (1967) and a graduate degree in computer science from Indiana’s Purdue University (1971). After working as a civilian analyst for the U.S. Navy, Cain worked in the early 1970s for the Coca-Cola Company and then joined Pillsbury in 1977, where he worked his way to the place of vice president. He had great success running hundreds of Burger King restaurants (at the time a subsidiary of Pillsbury), and Pillsbury made him president of their Godfather’s Pizza chain in 1986.
Cain resigned his place at Godfather’s in 1996 to act as the Organization’s full time president and also to work as an economic adviser to the unsuccessful Republican candidates for president and vice president, Bob Dole and Jack Kemp. After leaving the National Restaurant Association in 1999, Herman Cain joined the world of politics as a columnist, author and on-the-air commentator. Herman ran unsuccessfully for the U.S. Senate in 2004, and in 2008 landed his own radio show out of Atlanta. By 2010 Cain was a popular speaker at political rallies for what was known as the “tea party movement,” a group of disaffected conservatives attracted to Cain for his perspectives on taxes (he does not like them), abortions (he does not like them), homosexuals (he does not like them) and President Barack Obama’s policies (he does not like them).
