Michelin head dies in boating accident
EDOUARD MICHELIN, joint managing director of the French tyre maker, has died in a boating accident, off the Ile de Sein in Brittany in Western France.

He was 43. An engineering graduate of the Ecole Centrale de Paris, he joined the family's company in 1985 and became head of it in 1999.

Michel Rollier, who had been joint managing partner along with Edouard Michelin, would "assure the continuity of the company's management," said the company.

Fernando dedicated his win at Monaco to mr.Michelin, good to see a family still own a business under their own surname, what with others being merged/taken over what not.

~RIP~
