MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia’s Rusal head of sales Steve Hodgson is leaving the company, a source familiar with the matter said on Thursday.

Rusal, the world’s second largest aluminum producer, has been hit by U.S. sanctions against Russia.

The source said he did not know the date when Hodgson would step down.

Hodgson was not available for immediate comment. Rusal declined to comment.
