Who is Howard Buffett?
In 2011, Buffett made it known that he wants his son Howard to succeed him as a non-executive chairman of Berkshire Hathaway when he dies. Berkshire Hathaway is the holding company that has largely contributed to Warren Buffett’s success, boasting over $290 billion in assets under management.
Howard Buffett is passionate about agriculture and helping people in need across the world. He launched the Howard G. Buffett Foundation in 1999, with the goal of providing a better quality of living for people living in impoverished areas.
The foundation provides food security solutions to Central America, Mexico, and Africa, to offer food and water and to research ways to improve living standards. In the U.S., the foundation focuses on raising awareness about places abroad that struggle in agriculture.
Buffett even does his own farming, first starting out as a farmer in Nebraska, where he grew up. Warren purchased a farm for him in the early 1980s, and Howard had to pay rent to live and farm there. Now, Warren's eldest son resides in Illinois and operates his own 1,500-acre farm.
