New Executive Director for HDC

Hudson Development Corporation (HDC) has been without an executive director since the end of June, when Branda Maholtz resigned. At its regular monthly meeting on Tuesday, the HDC board ratified Misty McGee as the agency's new executive director.

In introducing McGee, Chris Jones, HDC board president, said that the search committee had reviewed fourteen candidates before making its recommendation. The job description identified helping to define HDC's long-range mission as a major responsibility and stressed the ability to think strategically and translate goals into actions as critical skills. Jones told the board, "Knowledge of Hudson was key to assessing the applicants."

McGee, who lives on Union Street, had a long and successful career in women's merchandising for Ralph Lauren. Most recently, she was Business Development Director for the architectural firm Spacesmith here in Hudson. She is also an adjunct professor in the fashion program in the School of Communications & the Arts at Marist College. 

McGee officially takes on the role of executive director of HDC on October 3.
