  • Warren Buffett says Berkshire has 'right person' as heir

    By Luciana Lopez and Jonathan Stempel NEW YORK (Reuters) - Warren Buffett, the billionaire chief executive of Berkshire Hathaway Inc, told investors on Saturday that the company had found his successor, and the company's vice chairman, Charlie Munger, identified two Berkshire executives as candidates. In Berkshire's annual report to shareholders, Greg Abel, the head of Berkshire's energy companies, and Ajit Jain, a top insurance executive, were said by Munger to be "proven performers who would probably be under-described as 'world-class.'" "'World-leading' would be the description I would choose," Munger said in a letter to Berkshire shareholders. "In some important ways, each is a better business executive than Buffett." Buffett's son, Howard, would become non-executive chairman after the departure of his father, who is also Berkshire's chairman.

    The head of the Nova Scotia Teachers Union (NSTU) is concerned with comments made by the province’s education minister that teachers could work some Saturdays or even a day or two of March Break to make up for lost days. “It's in our contract that we don't work Saturdays, March Break or that the PD (professional development) days would have to be talked about in terms of bargaining," said Shelley Morse.
