Charles Sandy Kennedy Jr., CPA/PFS/ABV
Sandy has built his career around working with business decision-makers, helping them save taxes while making economically sound choices. As a Tax Director and as an Accredited Business Valuation specialist, he helps business owners find solutions both to today’s challenges and the needs of the long-range future.
Sandy provides income and estate tax planning, financial planning and business valuation to a broad range of business clients and individuals. He has strong expertise in business succession planning and IRS representation, as well as consulting in cases where business owners divorce or experience a partner dispute.

That talent for analytical thinking and problem solving goes back to his days as an engineering student at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, where he graduated in 1967. He received his Certificate in Accounting from Bentley University in 1975 and started his career at Peat, Marwick, Mitchell (now KPMG) and Price Waterhouse (now PricewaterhouseCoopers) before joining G.T. Reilly & Company in 1982. He later left and founded his own tax practice, Kennedy & Kennedy CPAs, in Hingham. He rejoined G.T. Reilly in 2012 when he merged his practice into the firm.
Sandy is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, including its Tax, Personal Financial Planning, and Forensic and Valuation Services sections, as well as the Massachusetts Society of Certified Public Accountants.
He has been a Red Sox season ticket holder since 1987. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his three grown children and four grandchildren. Sandy lives in Duxbury with his wife, Pam.
