When the company and Wacker Chemie formed joint ventures in 1998, she joined Wacker as plant manager of the Calvert City Dispersible Polymer Powders operations and by 2008 she assumed responsibility for both the Powders and Dispersions Polymer operations for North America.

    When Wacker opened its new polysilicon manufacturing facility in Charleston, Tennessee in 2016, Hudson was tapped to lead the company’s Polysilicon Division as Vice President and manager of the Charleston site. In that role, she is responsible for all aspects of manufacturing, supply chain, business operations, sales, and profitability of the Polysilicon Division throughout the North and Central American region.
