Lunch donor joins Berkshire to manage investments

The donor in 2011 Ted Weschler who bought lunch with Buffett for a whopping $2.6 million now helps manage Berkshire Hathaway’s Investment Portfolio, suggesting that lunch with Warren Buffett can pay dividends.

Meeting in July, 2010 for the $2,626,311 dinner, the two men liked each other right away. Buffett learned about Weschler’s investment success and how he achieved it—the ‘how’ being as important to Buffett as the gains themselves.
