Plymouth State American Marketing Association Inducts Two to Alumni Hall of Fame

December 29th, 2009 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, NH—Business alumni Scott Biederman ’75 and Larry K. Haynes ’86 were inducted into the PSU American Marketing Association chapter alumni hall of fame, at a December 2 event at the Common Man Inn in Plymouth.

Scott Biederman came to Plymouth State when the business program was in an embryonic stage and professors “taught me from experience,” he says.

Biederman and his wife Patti ’76 own and operate two businesses in Plymouth, Biederman’s Deli & Pub and The Chase Street Market, and are longtime supporters of many PSU and Plymouth area enterprises.

When they came to Plymouth as students a little over 30 years ago, neither imagined that their future lives would involve a move of a few hundred yards, from campus to Main Street to operate seven-day-a-week businesses. Today, the Deli and Pub are Plymouth institutions, tied intimately to the town’s history.

Larry Haynes (far right) is president and CEO of the Grappone Companies, one of New Hampshire’s largest automotive retailing groups, and a member of both the PSU President’s Council and the University System of New Hampshire Board of Trustees.

Prior to joining Grappone, Haynes worked for Deloitte & Touche, First NH Bank and the MEG Companies in various financial and accounting positions. Haynes is also treasurer of Step Ahead Learning Center, Inc., and a volunteer fundraiser for the Easter Seals. He completed Leadership New Hampshire in 2003.

A native of North Stratford, Haynes became a certified public accountant in 1988 and a certified financial planner in 1991. Haynes and his wife Dawn ’86 live in Weare with their two daughters.
