July 21, 2010, Chicago, Ill. — Herman Cain, the popular Atlanta radio talk show host who delivered an electrifying keynote address on leadership at the National Automatic Merchandising Association (NAMA) premier OneShowSM in April, is being considered a dark horse 2012 GOP presidential candidate, NAMA Senior Director, OneShow and Education LyNae Schleyer, NCE, CMP, has announced.
“Politics Daily” columnist Matt Lewis wrote of a recent “Draft Cain” movement to “try to help convince him that there’s support out there for him.” According to one leader of the movement, Cain supporters love him and his ability to have the “wow” factor. They say he is a man of principle with strong leadership skills.
“Cain’s unique personality and multi-dimensional background in business were factors in our choice to have him deliver the keynote address at our premier OneShow,” said Schleyer. “We are extremely proud that we are able to provide speakers of his caliber for our NAMA members,” she added.
Cain is currently a radio talk show host on “The Herman Cain Show” out of Atlanta’s WSB 750 am and is a FOX News business commentator. He has also served as CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, Chairman of the Board of Directors for the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, and was Chairman of the Board for the National Restaurant Association. He has received eight honorary doctorate degrees and is also the author of four books—Leadership is Common Sense, Speak As a Leader, CEO of SELF and They Think You’re Stupid.
Concluded Schleyer, “NAMA will continue to search for world-class “in the news” kind of people to deliver keynote addresses because WOW speakers motivate and inspire our members.”
NAMA is the national trade association of the food and refreshment vending, coffee service and foodservice management industries including on-site, commissary, catering, & mobile. Its membership is comprised of service companies, equipment manufacturers and suppliers of products and services to operating service companies. The basic mission of the association, to collectively advance and promote the automatic merchandising and coffee service industries, still guides NAMA today as it did in 1936, the year of the organization’s founding.
