Freddie Mac acting CFO David Kellermann had been making plans to take time off from the company the day before authorities found him dead in an apparent suicide, someone close to the company said. A human resources official reportedly told Kellermann he had been working too hard and needed a break. Kellermann, 41, became the company’s CFO in September after the federal takeover of Freddie Mac.
