During Berkshire Hathaway’s Annual Shareholders meeting on Saturday May 4th, 2013, Bloomberg TV’s “In The Loop” host Betty Liu interviewed three female CEOs from Berkshire Hathaway’s subsidiary companies; Cathy Baron Tamraz, CEO of Business Wire, Mary Rhinehart, CEO of Johns Manville, and Susan Jacques, CEO of Borsheims. The three women speak out about the role of females in business and the vast opportunities now available for women.
When Liu commented that, to someone looking in, five female CEOs is not an impressive number for Berkshire Hathaway, Business Wire’s Cathy Baron Tamraz said, “Change comes slowly. [Warren Buffett] didn’t buy these other businesses because there were men running them . . . He is always looking for the best person for the job.” Watch the full interview to hear more from the women of Berkshire Hathaway.
