It's a tragic day for MSI. We have learned that the company's CEO Charles Chiang has died at the age of 56.

As reported by Taiwanese news outlet Liberty Times, Charles fell from the seventh floor of a building in Taipei's Zhonghe District. Police were dispatched to the scene and Charles was rushed to the hospital, although showing no signs of life during transport. He was later pronounced dead at the hospital. No other details about the circumstances have been made available.

"Earlier today, MSI GM and CEO Charles Chiang passed away," an MSI spokesperson told Tom's Hardware. "Having been a part of the company for more than 20 years, he made outstanding contributions and was admired by his colleagues. Mr. Chiang was a respected leader in the MSI family, and helped pave the way for the brand’s success. We are all deeply saddened by the news, and are mourning the loss of Mr. Chiang. He will be deeply missed by the entire team."

Charles took over MSI in January of 2019 after leading the company’s successful charge into motherboards and graphics cards as the Head of Desktop Computing.

Our thoughts and condolences are with Charles' family, friends and colleagues.
