Robert P. Miles and Warren Buffett
  • Invited by Warren Buffett.  He’s one of the few who've been given access to Warren’s office and to private lunches with Berkshire Hathaway’s Chairman.

**Buffett’s 2001 letter excerpt (pg 4): "On the positive side, we have as fine an array of operating managers as exists at any company. (You can read about many of them in a new book by Robert P. Miles: The Warren Buffett CEO.) In large part, moreover, they are running businesses with economic characteristics ranging from good to superb. The ability, energy and loyalty of these managers is simply extraordinary. We now have completed 37 Berkshire years without having a CEO of an operating business elect to leave us to work elsewhere."
