The Board of Trustees of Franklin Pierce University, the governing body of the institution, appointed Steven V. Camerino of Meredith, NH as Chair and Kerry D. Stein of Mamaroneck, NY as Vice-Chair, as Franklin Pierce enters its tenth anniversary as a University.
Camerino, who has served on the Board of Trustees since 2012, is President and Chief Executive Officer of New Hampshire Electric Cooperative (NHEC), New Hampshire’s second largest electric utility providing service to all or part of 115 municipalities in New Hampshire.
Before joining NHEC in 2015, Camerino was a shareholder and director at McLane, Graf, Raulerson & Middleton, P.A., a regional law firm based in New Hampshire, where he was chair of the Energy, Utilities and Telecommunications Practice Group and Managing Director of the firm’s Concord, NH office.
Camerino was consistently listed in Woodward/White’s The Best Lawyers in America for his energy and utilities law practice. The New Hampshire Bar Association awarded him its L. Jonathan Ross Award for Legal Service to the Poor in 1999. Camerino received his A.B. from Dartmouth College in 1980 and his J.D. from Columbia University School of Law in 1983.
Stein, an alumnus of Franklin Pierce’s class of 1980, previously served on the Board of Trustees and was reappointed in October 2015. He is managing director at Lloyds Bank Corporate Markets, holds a B.A. in Economics and Finance, and has more than two decades of experience in the investment banking field. Prior to joining Lloyds, he was at Morgan Joseph, and prior to that, Stein was head of Yankee bond trading at Dresdner Bank.
“Since joining the Franklin Pierce Board, both Steve and Kerry have provided leadership through incisive observations, relevant questions, and realistic guidance about important institutional issues,” said Franklin Pierce University President and alumna Kim Mooney. “In addition to these skills, both men bring a deep respect for the Franklin Pierce mission and the entire University community.”
The Board of Trustees meets at least three times a year, either in Rindge, NH, Manchester, NH, or Goodyear, AZ; they met most recently at the College at Rindge on October 21, 2016. During the trustees’ time in Rindge, they also attended the re-dedication of The Lloyd & Helen Ament Astmann ’69 Career Center, marking the completion of its Tower of Excellence which unifies Franklin Pierce career services, alumni and parent relations, the Wensberg Writing Center and the Center for Academic Excellence under one roof in the University's Library.
The next meeting of the Board of Trustees is March 9-10, 2017 at Franklin Pierce’s Manchester Center.
