Freddie Mac Acting CFO David Kellermann Found Dead (Update3)
By Dawn Kopecki and Jody Shenn
April 22 (Bloomberg) -- Freddie Mac Acting Chief Financial Officer David Kellermann, 41, was found dead early today in his home in the Washington suburbs, police said.
There were no signs of foul play, and the death is under investigation, Fairfax County, Virginia, Police Officer Shelley Broderick said. Broderick said early reports from others in the department indicated Kellermann’s wife reported a suicide, though the cause of death hasn’t been determined.
“He was a hard worker, good guy and had a positive attitude,” said David Stevens, a former Freddie mortgage executive who left the company in 2005 and was recently nominated to run the Federal Housing Administration. “Either way, it’s a tragedy,” Stevens said, referring to the reports that the death may have been a suicide.
The Securities and Exchange Commission and the Justice Department have been questioning executives about Freddie’s accounting practices, according to company filings. McLean, Virginia-based Freddie and Washington-based Fannie Mae, the mortgage-finance companies seized last year by U.S. regulators, reported in September that they were under investigation.
Kellermann, who joined Freddie in 1992, was promoted from controller to acting CFO after the government takeover in September, which was prompted by record losses amid the worst housing slump since the Great Depression. As controller, Kellermann was the principal accounting officer, dealing with financial statements and disclosures, according to Freddie’s Web site.
‘Standout’ in Accounting
Kellermann was found at about 4:48 a.m. local time at his home in Fairfax County today, police said. John Koskinen, Freddie’s interim chief executive officer, said he is saddened by the news and lauded Kellermann’s “extraordinary work ethic and integrity.”
“He will be most remembered for his affability, his personal warmth, his sense of humor and his quick wit,” Koskinen said in a statement.
Jim Vogel, the head of agency debt research at FTN Financial in Memphis, Tennessee, wrote in a note to clients today that Kellermann “had been a standout in its accounting group prior to his CFO appointment.”
Kellermann received a master’s degree in finance from George Washington University, after graduating from the University of Michigan. He was a volunteer board member with the D.C. Coalition for the Homeless, according to the Web site.
He owned 38,861 Freddie shares as of April 11 valued at $33,420, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
CEO David Moffett left Freddie last month after six months on the job. The company has been run on an interim basis by Koskinen, who had been chairman.
