Texas Monthly on profile Occidental CEO Vicki Hollub and her pursuit of the Anadarko deal. The article profiles Ms. Hollub's rise at Occidental and her pursuit of Anadarko. Ms. Hollub comes across as smart, hardworking and trustworthy - and there's a brief appearance by Buffett - but mostly the article is LONG.
According to Hollub, the white-haired, wizened Buffett greeted them at the door to his headquarters, a nondescript office building. He was casually dressed in a sweater. Brown and Hollub wore business suits. The meeting also included Buffett’s CFO, and the whole thing lasted about an hour, an amount of time that perhaps should’ve set off alarm bells but that Hollub took as proof of Buffett’s genius. .. Hollub and Brown got back on the plane with a commitment of $10 billion in cash; ... Hollub had made Buffett a 10 percent owner of Occidental overnight.
