Randy Hunt is the current member of the Massachusetts House of Representatives for the 5th Barnstable district. He had previously served as a member of the Sandwich Board of Selectmen from 2003 to 2010.[1]


In 1981, with a bachelor's degree in accounting, he entered the firm of Peat Marwick Mitchell, then the second largest partnership of certified public accountants. During his eight-year employ with Peat Marwick, now KPMG LLP, he was promoted to senior manager in the audit practice and spent two years in the firm's executive office in New York City.

In 1989, he left KPMG to become a plant controller with a publicly traded company that manufactures infrared optical sensors and emitters used in office machinery and automobiles. Four years later, he was recruited by another publicly traded company to become general manager of their EMI filter business unit. He was later promoted to chief financial officer with the same company, working with financial institutions, investment bankers, the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the board of directors and shareholders of the company.

In 2003, Hunt established his own CPA practice, a firm focused on small businesses, individuals and non-profit corporations.

He started his public service activities in 2001 when he was invited to join the Town of Sandwich's finance committee. Three years later, he won election to the board of selectmen and served two three-year terms. He was sworn in as state representative from the 5th Barnstable District on January 5, 2011.
