Who will succeed Warren Buffett as CEO of Berkshire Hathaway?

Warren Buffett has not publicly named a specific individual to succeed him as CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, but he has indicated that the board of directors has a plan in place for his eventual departure.

Buffett has often emphasized the importance of having a strong management team in place to run Berkshire Hathaway’s subsidiaries and investments, and he has delegated many of the company’s day-to-day operations to his deputies, including Vice Chairman Charlie Munger and Berkshire Hathaway’s various subsidiary CEOs.

However, Buffett has stated that he does not plan to retire anytime soon, and he continues to be actively involved in the company’s investment decisions and overall strategy. When he eventually steps down, it is likely that the board of directors will appoint a successor from within the company, possibly one of his current deputies or someone with a long history of working with Berkshire Hathaway.
