Kent Huang, a resident of Montgomery Township since 2008, is running for a seat on the Montgomery Township Committee. Kent is the Chief Risk Officer and a Portfolio Manager at Mount Lucas Management LP, an alternative asset management firm. Kent has spent the past decade analyzing macro-economic trends; the result of changes occurring in society, in politics, and from advancements in science and technology. Managing financial and enterprise risk in this increasingly dynamic world requires an ability to think holistically, to act with transparency and inclusivity, to develop conclusions based on facts and data, and to adapt to new information. The son of a former small business owner and a partner at Mount Lucas, Kent understands the importance of organizations being fiscally prudent while continuing to innovate and plan for the future.
Kent graduated cum laude from Rutgers University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance. He is a CFA charterholder and a certified Financial Risk Manager (FRM), as well as a member of the CFA Institute, CFA Society New York and the Global Association of Risk Professionals. Kent resides in Belle Mead with his wife Mei, a Psychiatric Clinical Pharmacist with Penn Medicine and a Clinical Assistant Professor at Rutgers University. They are the proud parents of two boys, Cameron and Andrew.
As a candidate for Township Committee, Kent looks to bring his entrepreneurial mindset as well as his fiscal discipline and holistic approach to understanding the issues that are most important to the Montgomery Township community and to provide innovative and sustainable solutions that are fiscally sound and socially responsible. Kent believes politics should respect the past, consider the present and plans for the future; politics that is inclusive, transparent and accountable. He looks forward to serving the Montgomery Township community.
