Isn't this supposed to be one of Tracy's jobs?  To make sure the smaller subs run smoothly after WEB is gone? Ajit was able to recruit some A+ talent as well.

I'm not too concerned right now.

Not sure exactly what her job is.  When you say "make sure subs run smoothly", surely, I don't believe that the heads of those subs report to her. If that were the case, its not the "hands off" management style often touted by WEB. WEB has already dispelled any notion that she is the next CEO. The media is captivated by the addition of youth to the octogenarian club and also this kind of role is commonly one of a corporate mole (at least the perception is), so the questions will continue to swirl until her role becomes clear over the years. The only comment we heard was on that CNBC interview, WEB said she "represents the BRK Shareholders at the (smaller) subs". That's good enough for me.
