Exclusive Video Interview with Kevin Clayton, CEO of Clayton Homes, a division of Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway

September 21st, 2011

Up close and personal interview with Kevin Clayton, CEO of Clayton Homes, the largest factory built home-builder in the United States and a wholly owned subsidiary of Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway. For nearly one hour, author Robert Miles interviews Kevin Clayton on this University of Nebraska UNO Televion interview. Miles’ interview covers all aspects of Clayton Homes and related businesses from getting started by his father Jim Clayton, to taking over from his father, and to selling to Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway. Aspects of the Clayton company culture, the servant leadership business model, the need for an industry wide image and marketing campaign and much more are explored. One of the many great quotes is by Kevin Clayton quoting Warren Buffett, saying: “Kevin, it seems like the problem of your industry is resale.”
