He has a younger sister named Heather MacBeath, who is eight years old than him.

Greg Abel Net Worth & Career
Abel, a self-proclaimed workaholic, is passionate about the accounting side of the business. From his early experience as an accountant with PricewaterhouseCoopers in Edmonton to working at CalEnergy Co., he has always been prepared to take on new opportunities that require complex and intelligent work. Whether joining the internal accounting team or starting as the controller for one of their power plants – Abel’s dedication impressed David Sokol. He gave him more responsibility than most would ever have expected!
Greg is the current CEO of MidAmerican and a vice chairman at Berkshire Hathaway. He has been with both companies for thirty-three years, in which he was transferred to England then later moved to America. In 2008, Greg became president of MidAm until 2016, when it merged into Berkshire Hathaway Energy after David Sokol purchased CalEnergy’s Iowa-based company and renamed it from its original name Midwest Utility Company (MUE).
Greg Abel Personal Life
Greg Abel has had a busy marriage life. He met his first wife when he was just 22 years old, but the two knew it wouldn’t last long because they were both in their early twenties and not mature enough to make any decisions about themselves or each other at that time.
Having three kids under 7-years of age who spent most weekends with him since he worked on Saturdays during this period caused them to split up after only four years together–the longest-lasting relationship Greg’s ever been in! His second spouse is raising her son from another man while married to Greg too: sources say she takes care of all household duties as well as being a fantastic cook like many mothers are these days for their families every day around the world; having children over the years has taught her the many ways to make a family work. Greg’s third marriage was only short-lived, lasting just six months in total.

As of 2021, Greg Abel has amassed over $480 million in personal wealth.
