According to Bible, one of the Seven Deadly Sinsis Jealousy. And I must confess that I am committing this sin now.
I am jealous.
And I am jealous of a 29 years
old young girl. The name of this girl is Tracy Britt. And believe me or not, this girl, employed by Warren Buffett, is his right hand!!
|Warren Buffett’s Right Hand.
Now being almost her age, and a worshipper of her boss, its only natural for me to feel jealous. Isn’t it? Anyways, I know Mr Buffett isn’t listening to me, so there is no point in cribbing about it.
Tracy Britt is almost 50 years younger to Warren & he hired her in 2009 when she graduated from Harvard Business School. While at Harvard, she started Smart Women Securities to educate women about finance and investments. It was through this venture that she came in touch with Warren. And as per online sources, she seems to be a tough and a decisive ‘young’ girl. She is known to dismiss company heads with ease!! And just the following statement by Warren Buffett is a testimony in itself about what this girl is capable off:
And though Warren hasn’t publicly identified his successor, he thinks that “Tracy [would] be of particular value, to [his] successor.” One thing which I like about her work is that she gets to travel to Berkshire Hathaway’s smaller subsidiaries, where Warren is ‘too busy or too lazy’ to spend time on!! 🙂 And she is even the chairperson of a few of them!!
I tried finding more about her, but it seems that it is still early days for this girl whom Warren hired as a 25 year old financial researcher, and who is now the Financial Assistant to the Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway. Financial Media has only recently started writing about her.
So for the time being, I will stop adding more fuel to this fire of jealousy. 🙂
