Kona, Hawaii – Tragedy struck the Lavaman Waikoloa Triathlon on Sunday when Paul Reynolds, CEO & president of Canadian financial company Canaccord Genuity, died following a medical emergency during the competition.
He had been competing in the competition, which features a 1,500m swim, 40km cycle & 10km run, but according to media reports problems arose during the swim stage of the event. Reynolds was pulled from the water and rushed to hospital but tragically he didn’t recover.
Canaccord Genuity’s stand-in CEO Davie Kassie said: “This is a difficult day for everyone at Canaccord Genuity. As the architect of our firm’s global transformation, Paul’s distinct style of partnership, friendship and respect over three decades of commitment is just part of the legacy he leaves us all.”
