Small correction. Herman Cain “owned” Godfather’s Pizza. I would not call that C level executive. Talk about getting it wrong!! Shame on Townhall.
To be precise, after becoming CEO of the subsidiary unit, he led a group of investors to buy out Godfather’s pizza; having done so, they made him CEO. He owned a stake, but nowhere near a legally controlling stake; the control he kept through the support of other stakeholders.
