BNSF CEO Matt Rose, 51, is said by the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram to be a possible successor to 80-year-old Warren Buffett as the next CEO of holding company Berkshire Hathaway, whose assets exceed $372 billion.
The newspaper bases the speculation on a Securities and Exchange Commission filing indicating “four unnamed candidates as possible successors to Buffett. That’s one more than a year ago, and some observers suggest the new candidate is Rose,” says the newspaper.
BNSF is now wholly owned by the Omaha-based Berkshire Hathaway, whose holdings also include insurance giant GEICO.
A BNSF spokesperson denied the rumor.
