A quarter century ago, Don Wurster left San Francisco for a job at an insurance company owned by Warren Buffett's conglomerate Berkshire Hathaway in Omaha. Head of National Indemnity Company since 1989, Wurster credits Haas with helping him develop accounting and analytical skills that have made it easier to negotiate the uncertain world of insurance, where execs often don't learn how their underwriting decisions will "work out" until several years later.
