De Beers executive Warren Symcox died recently in a car accident. He was the general manager for Harry Oppenheimer House (HOH), the South African diamond sorting and valuation facility in Kimberley.
The accident occurred when Symcox, his family, and some friends were traveling on vacation. His wife and children are recovering at a South African hospital.
In a statement, De Beers called Symcox “a great asset … who will be sorely missed by his colleagues and friends.”
