Australian Mark Moreland was one of 38,000 Warren Buffett devotees who flocked to the Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting this year. Standing in a queue at jewellery store Borsheim’s, he met the man himself.
“He’s totally comfortable in his own skin. He’s down to earth, there’s no pretension. He’s like someone you’d meet at the lawn bowls club,” Mr Moreland says of the famed billionaire and value investor who boasts a net worth estimated by Forbes $US66 billion.
