When Tracy Britt arrived in Omaha, Neb., in 2009 to meet with Warren Buffett, she brought a Harvard M.B.A., a glittering resume and a boatload of ambition. But she also brought the famed investor a gift to highlight their shared Midwestern roots: a bushel of corn and a batch of tomatoes.

Tracy Britt, 28 , has become one of the most influential women within Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway.

The seed Ms. Britt planted that day yielded quick results: a job for Ms. Britt as Mr. Buffett’s financial assistant at Berkshire Hathaway Inc. Almost four years later, it has blossomed further, with Ms. Britt emerging as one of Mr. Buffett’s top lieutenants and even serving as chairman of four companies within his $284 billion conglomerate.

I wonder if he pounded her. The author should dig deeper into that.

Buffett has a weakness for pretty women (well who doesn’t?) So she had a head start. Still, she seems pretty intelligent and driven, and hopefully won’t be corrupted by power. Hey, better than Sokol!

At least the hacksawed educationed loser was smart enough to hire a nonhacksawed educationed loser.

I say she’s a 6. Really not that attractive aside from the earning potential she’d bring, IMO.
