John Searle, the British-born battery executive who helped take French battery maker Saft to the stock market, has died suddenly at 60.

Searle joined Saft in 1990 and helped make the firm a significant international player, work colleagues stated. The company was spun out of the French telecom giant Alcatel in 2004 and  under Searle’s management, the company established operations in 18 countries and became a leader in the deployment of lithium battery technology.
