Constellation of companies.

She is officially the chairman of four units, including one in our backyard.

Then jim and more is -- benjamin moore is a paint company a lot of people like.

She has the kind of mind that can drill down and think about the things that matter to someone like warren buffett when he is overseeing a big business like he has.

She had to fire three ceo's and find replacements.

She had to change three ceo's benjamin moore had to change the ceo for a second time.

It has not been entirely a slow -- smooth ride.

But this is maybe a good thing for her to be going through these experiences.

They will test her.

They will make or potentially a more valuable person for berkshire long-term.

Buffett called them the t's. the other two are todd and ted.

Both used to run hedge funds.

Tracy has been in an operational oversight role.

She has given a lot of information.

All right, thank you very much.

Thank you.
