New role aligns external and internal communications, highlights HSC’s leading role in clean energy and sustainability
Hemlock, Mich. – Hemlock Semiconductor Operations (HSC), the nation’s leading manufacturer of hyper-pure polysilicon for the semiconductor and solar industries, today announced that Tara Zachariah has been promoted to Director of Communications.
In this newly created role, Zachariah will lead the Communications Department and oversee a comprehensive, multi-faceted program that aligns external and internal communications functions. Additionally, Zachariah will continue to grow HSC’s visibility within the clean energy and sustainability communities, including by serving as liaison to the Clean Energy Buyers Alliance (CEBA).
Zachariah previously served as Marketing Communications Lead, responsible for the marketing, executive and external communications programs aimed at achieving HSC’s vision of becoming the preferred supplier of polysilicon to the low-carbon, digital world. In this capacity, she drove communications initiatives to raise the visibility of HSC’s ESG-differentiated position in the solar market.
“HSC is a uniquely pivotal brand in the U.S. manufacturing landscape, one that is essential to both a low-carbon and digital world,” Zachariah said. “It is an honor to continue telling the HSC story and building company champions with a talented, expanding team.”
Prior to her work at HSC, Zachariah served as Vice President at Boundary Stone Partners and Director of Content Strategy and Development at the Nuclear Energy Institute, both located in Washington, D.C.
“Tara’s strategic communications expertise, involvement in the clean energy sector and team-centric approach make her the right choice to lead a more robust Communications Department,” said Brooke Beebe, HSC Senior Vice President of Advocacy and Engagement. “We need to engage multiple internal and external stakeholders in compelling ways, and break through the noise in our business market segments. We look forward to seeing where her leadership takes us in 2023.”
