Four Deloitte employees killed in SA plane crash

Four of six passengers killed near Johannesburg in a plane crash were Deloitte employees

Four of the six passengers who lost their lives when their airplane crashed
near Johannesburg yesterday were employees of
Deloitte
in South Africa.

Four men and two women were killed in the accident. The Deloitte staff were
identified as Mahen Naidoo (43), an audit partner; Lesley Philpott (28), an
audit manager; Mark Kriel (25), accountant in charge; and Gillian Brown (23), an
audit trainee, the Johannesburg newspaper Mail & Guardian reports.

The Deloitte employees were en route to Lesoto to visit CBI, a division of
Reunert, a major client of Deloitte, and were accompanied by two CBI senior
employees.

‘We are all in shock and devastated at this news. We are currently focusing
on providing support to the families of the victims as well as their colleagues
at Deloitte. They were part of a close-knit Deloitte family and will be greatly
missed,’ Allen Swiegers, Deloitte chief operating officer, said.
