The newly-appointed executive vice-president of Leclanché’s stationary business group, Karl Bohman, has died following a skiing accident, the Swiss battery storage company has announced.

Leclanché said Bohman (pictured), who joined the company last October, was "a bright and capable business leader and the industry has lost a successful cleantech top executive, technology entrepreneur and international business expansion specialist, with more than 10 years’ experience in the renewables and energy storage sector”.

The company expressed its condolences to Bohman’s widow and three sons for their "irreplaceable loss”.

Bohman, was a former head of business development at Swedish lithium-ion battery manufacturer Northvolt, and CEO of SaltX Technology. He revealed towards the end of last year that Leclanché was preparing for a "business shift”, by setting up a build-own-operate business to offer energy as a service.

CEO Anil Srivastava is to take over day-to-day responsibilities of the business unit for an interim period, supported by Guido Guidi, leading global business development and sales, and Thom Reddington, leading engineering and project management operations.
