Alcoa CEO Kleinfeld Cancels Russian Forum Visit

Alcoa Inc. Chief Executive Officer Klaus Kleinfeld won’t attend the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum this month after the White House lobbied the country’s top corporate leaders to avoid the event.

“In light of the U.S. government’s requirements, Alcoa has adjusted its attendance,” Monica Orbe, a spokeswoman for New York-based Alcoa, said in an e-mailed statement today. The company will “participate via its most senior Russian executives,” she said.
