Peter M. Waszkiewicz

President / CEO

Peter joined Randolph Engineering in 1975 as an apprentice in tool and die working alongside the two company founders, one being his father. Over the next 40 years, he earned his way up the corporate ladder to his current position as President and CEO. He attended Northeastern University where he graduated with a degree in Business Management. Today, his strong business aptitude across all areas of the firm coupled with his long-learned understanding of the industry, has been instrumental in leading the business through substantial growth periods. Peter serves on the boards of Randolph Engineering and of GROW Associates, a non-profit organization for individuals with special needs. He also serves as a member of the Senior Executive Committee for the Smaller Business Association of New England (SBANE). He loves life, his family, his career, and enjoys spending time outdoors.

Did you know? Randolph Engineering is the only remaining optical company from the 1970s that kept metal frame manufacturing alive here in the United States. While everyone else moved their manufacturing operations offshore for better margins, Randolph never left, keeping true to its roots.

General Manager, RE Ranger

Sarah Waszkiewicz

Sarah, the granddaughter of co-founder Jan Waszkiewicz, joined Randolph more than five years ago. Given the fact that she used to play hide and seek in the Randolph headquarters when she was a little girl, she feels as if she’s been here for a lifetime. Sarah has watched the product, and the company, evolve over many years and couldn’t be prouder of what her Papa was able to create and what her father, Peter, has grown. Not long ago, she decided to take up clay shooting. It was love at first shot. Since then, she has lived the shooting eyewear product, Ranger, and absolutely loves coming to work everyday! Fun fact: She is part of the Spartan Trifecta Tribe!

Did you know?:Co-founder Jan Waszkiewicz was a navigator for the Royal Air Force before coming to America to follow his American Dream.
