The contenders: Four who could take over Buffett's mantle
When Ajit came to Berkshire in 1996, Mr Buffett wrote: "I did the logical thing: I wrote to his parents in New Delhi and asked if they had another one like him at home."
Mr Jain runs Berkshire's reinsurance arm, one of the world's biggest insurers of insurance companies, with a team of just 31 people.
NetJets is one of Mr Buffett's favourite firms, offering fractional ownership of private jets to not-quite-super-rich Americans. Mr Santulli invented the concept, founded the company and still runs it under the Berkshire umbrella, after selling out to his most famous customer.
The 52-year-old David Sokol is one of the most feted corporate bosses in the US, having been chief executive and now chairman of the energy firm MidAmerican since 1989, turning it into one of the most powerful in the land. His charity work mentoring students endears him to Mr Buffett.
Chief executive of Geico, Berkshire's insurance arm, Olza "Tony" Nicely is bookies' favourite to take over as chief executive of the parent. He is loyal to Geico to the point of obsession, and has a youthful ambition despite his 64 years. Mr Buffett notes that "Tony feels Geico is just getting started".
My take on that
1- If Santulli is chosen to run Berkshire, that'd kind of secure our future...
2- If Santulli is chosen, can anybody else run NetJets as well as he can???? I think we need him here
3- Anybody else worried about what would happen to us when Mr. Buffet goes or is it just me??
I live on OMA, from what I've heard around town is it's Sokol's to lose. He's an Omaha guy, very involved in the Omaha area, runs one of Buffets more successful companies (mid-America), and has been in the loop for 20 years.
