At Allen & Co., A-listers come from all over

The annual Allen & Co. technology and media conference at Sun Valley Resort last week attracted guests from a wide variety of professions and a wide variety of places. Television journalist and former Democratic political advisor George Stephanopoulos, top, is the anchor of the “Good Morning America” news and talk show, based in New York City. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, second down with his wife Mary Pat, visited Sun Valley amid talk that Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney might pick him as his running mate. Christie said after the conference that he doesn’t think that he will be asked to join Romney in the race for the White House. New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, third down, attended the conference with his girlfriend, actress Ricki Noel Lander. Ross Levinsohn, at bottom with his wife Nicole, came into the Allen & Co. conference amid speculation that Yahoo would promote him from interim CEO to full-time CEO. However, in a surprise move Monday, Yahoo announced that it would pass over Levinsohn in favor of a former competitor, Google executive Marissa Mayer. Standing behind Levinsohn is Warren Buffett, CEO of the Nebraska-based Berkshire Hathaway investment house, who Forbes magazine ranks as the third-wealthiest person in the world.
