Sissy Sherman Hudson is settling into her position as the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center’s Director of Resource Management.  Hudson came to ERDC from the Mississippi Valley Division where she served as the deputy of Resource Management.  In her new capacity she is responsible for planning, coordination and supervision of all matters pertaining to resource management which include ERDC operating budget, program and reimbursable, manpower and management analysis, and finance and accounting activities. 

“I am very excited about this new position, Hudson said.  “ERDC is the premier engineer and scientific research organization and I am humbled by the opportunity to be a part of a financial team that is a trendsetter for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  It is an exciting opportunity to be able to work with such great people in the ERDC RM family.  I really feel that we are making great strides in revitalizing our commitment to ERDC in providing financial advice and strong customer service.”

The Vicksburg native in setting goals for her department states “We have a great team in RM and I hope to continue to build trust and a mutual understanding and appreciation of financial expectations. I believe it is our mission to build confidence through collaborative and transparent efforts and provide a mindset that even though we each have a separate mission, we will reach the same financial goal. 

With the ever changing financial environment, USACE continues to focus on moving forward as the fiscal climate continues to shift.  Providing financial solutions to today’s challenges is the foremost important thing for the ERDC-RM mission.”

Hudson earned her bachelor and master in business administration from Belhaven University, Jackson, Mississippi.  In her career field, she is a Certified Defense Financial Manager with Acquisition Specialty.  Hudson achieved her DoD Financial Management Certification Level 3.
