First Solar Loses Operations Head

Tempe, Arizona-based solar panel maker First Solar said late Wednesday that Bruce Sohn, the company's President of Operations, is leaving the company. The firm did not detail why Sohn is leaving, but said that it was a "natural time" for Sohn to "pursue new opportunities" outside the company. The firm said Sohn will not be replaced. Sohn has been at First Solar since 2003, including serving on its board of directors.
