Business Wire Gives Back: Parisian Staffer’s Portrait of Buffett to be Auctioned At Berkshire Meeting

Stephane Zovko, a client services representative in Business Wire’s Paris bureau, has long been an admirer of Warren Buffett, Chairman of  Berkshire Hathaway, the parent company of his employer.
When members of Business Wire’s Paris sales team had the opportunity to meet Buffett last year around the time that Zovko was to turn 39, he requested they secure an autograph from Buffett as a birthday gift.  They did.  Upon receiving the autograph, Zovko committed to painting Buffett’s portrait as a thank-you to his gracious boss.

It took five months to complete, but Zovko, who’s been painting since age 14,  delivered on his promise.

Now that portrait will be autographed by Mr . Buffett and sold to the highest bidder at this week’s Berkshire Hathaway Annual Shareholder’s meeting in Omaha, Nebraska.

Bids start at $2,000 and all proceeds will benefit Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Omaha.
