WASHINGTON, DC-David Kellermann, the acting CFO of Freddie Mac, was found dead in his Vienna, VA home early this morning of apparent suicide. There is no immediate information about what may have prompted him to take his life, according to media reports.

Kellermann was named acting CFO of Freddie Mac last September, when the government took it and sister GSE Fannie Mae under conservatorship. The two agencies have come under a harsh spotlight in subsequent months as lending practices have been critiqued, significant losses realized and plans for bonuses roundly denounced in Congress.

There have also been changes in the upper echelons of management at Freddie Mac. Most recently, David Moffett, who had been selected in September to lead the agency under its government control, quit last month. Freddie Mac has been since headed by John A. Koskinen, Freddie Mac’s chairman.

Kellerman was 41 years old and is survived by his family.
