Hudson, executive vice president and chief marketing officer for the NFL, will be at Rochester Institute of Technology on Oct. 13 to share career strategies at the Saunders College of Business Gasser Lecture Series.

Her talk at RIT’s Student Alumni Union’s Ingle Auditorium is set for 2:30 p.m. and is open to the public. Tickets, which are free, are required. Go to to obtain tickets.

Hudson is responsible for growing the fan base while also overseeing the Super Bowl and Pro Bowl. During her three-year tenure with the NFL, there have been several public relations nightmares, including highly publicized domestic violence cases and the debacle involving the New England Patriots known as “Deflategate.”

Before joining the NFL, Hudson’s career stops included a stint as vice chairman of the Parthenon Group and president and CEO of Pepsi-Cola North America. She was twice named to Fortune magazine’s “50 Most Powerful Women in Business.”
