    McDonald's CEO dies of apparent heart attack

    CHICAGO (Reuters) - McDonald's Chairman and Chief Executive Jim Cantalupo, credited with recently turning around the iconic American fast-food company, has died of an apparent heart attack, and the company has named a successor within hours.

    McDonald's appointed Australian Charlie Bell, the 43-year-old chief operating officer who had been seen as heir apparent, to replace Cantalupo as its first non-American CEO.

    Cantalupo, 60, died while attending a McDonald's franchisee convention in Orlando, Florida. The death of a chief executive known for his affable personality and high energy shocked restaurant operators attending the meeting, which is held every two years.

    "He was such a beloved character," said one McDonald's operator in attendance, who declined to be named. "People were actually crying."
