Chairman who led US firm through tax shelter row dies of cancer aged 53

Former chairman of KPMG in the US, Eugene O’Kelly, has died aged 53.

O’Kelly stepped down from his position as chairman and chief executive in
June, after being diagnosed with advanced-stage cancer.

Timothy P. Flynn, who replaced O’Kelly, said: ‘My thoughts and prayers, as
well as those of the extended KPMG family, are with Gene’s wife, Corinne, and
his daughters, Gina and Marianne, at this time.

‘In his final message to all of us at KPMG, Gene shared that leaving his
chief executive post was unquestionably one of the most difficult career
decisions of his life, but he said that he was also driven to make a choice that
was fair both to his family as well as the firm.’
