There's a New Sheriff in Town -- And He's Warren Buffett's Son

He’ll fill in for Thomas Schneider, who announced Friday that he was retiring immediately.

Buffett, 62, who’s served as undersheriff since September 2014, will be carrying a lot more than a gun while on the job.

As a director at his father’s sprawling conglomerate, Berkshire Hathaway Inc. , he controls shares worth more than $200 million, most of which have been pledged to charity.

His father, who turned 87 last month, eventually wants him to become non-executive chairman of Berkshire.

The Herald & Review in Decatur, Illinois, reported the change in sheriff earlier.
