Georgia State Senator Hunter Hill is a native of Vinings, Georgia. He and his family live in Smyrna. After graduating from the United States Military Academy at West Point with a Bachelor of Science degree in General Management and Civil Engineering, Hunter became a 2nd Lieutenant in the United States Army. He went on to graduate from the Airborne, the Air Assault, and the US Army Ranger Schools. In June 2001, Hunter took command of a rifle platoon with the 101st Airborne Division, which he led into battle in Afghanistan in 2002. Hunter subsequently led another platoon into battle in Iraq in 2003 and he commanded 3 different teams on other deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan.

In addition to his combat roles, Hunter also served as a General’s aide in Iraq, and earned two Bronze Stars, the Meritorious Service Medal, and two Army Commendation Medals.

Like his Army career, Hunter’s business career is about leadership development. Hunter is currently the President of Tommy Newberry Coaching, where he leverages his military, real estate development, and security industry experience to lead and grow his business.

Senator Hill was elected to the State Senate in 2012 and was appointed by his colleagues to serve as deputy whip. He was chosen to serve as Chairman of the Veterans, Military and Homeland Security Committee, as well as Vice Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee. He is also a member of the Appropriations, Judiciary Non-Civil, Retirement, Reapportionment and Redistricting and Rules committees.

In addition to his leadership roles in the Senate, Hunter is also very active in the community. He has volunteered to assist the Smyrna Veterans Committee and currently serves on the Board of Directors for The National Infantry Museum. Hunter also serves on the Georgia Energy Forum and as an Advisory Board member for Promise686, a nonprofit ministry devoted to mobilizing churches and families to care for foster and orphaned children.

Hunter graduated from the inaugural class of the Conservative Policy Leadership Institute in 2010. Hunter is married to Shannan Reese Hill. They are the proud parents of Hunter Bradley Hill, Junior and Annie Christine Hill. The Hills attend Peachtree Presbyterian Church in Buckhead.
