Past Experience

Marty Grohman grew up on a small farm in the Western Maine town of Carthage. His family raised Jersey dairy cows, and Marty learned early the value of hard work and cooperation. Rising early to feed the animals before getting on the bus for school, life on the farm formed the bedrock values that Marty has used throughout his life. After graduating from Gould Academy, Marty got a degree in Chemical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He worked as a chemical engineer until inventing a composite decking material that he turned into a successful manufacturing business. Marty launched CorrectDeck in Biddeford in 1999. As he was growing the business, Marty was severely injured on the job. Starting a company from a wheelchair was not what he had in mind when he launched the company, but this experience reinforced his belief that cooperation and teamwork is the only way to achieve real results. Marty's company grew to employ 75 people right here in Maine, and gross more than $30 million in sales. It made the Inc 500 list three years in a row, and their products have been sold in 49 countries. The company was eventually acquired by an even larger building materials company, and Marty turned his focus to developing sustainability practices that have had a significant impact on the way the building materials industry relates to the environment. Marty has a passion for starting new ventures, and has been an advocate for Maine's entrepreneurial community, serving as a trustee for a non-profit that seeks to fund startups and working with local businesses to help them succeed. He's run a podcast - The Grow Maine Show - that features local businesses and helps to identify challenges and solutions for Maine-grown companies. Marty is an active member of his community. He works closely with veterans' groups and volunteers with addiction recovery groups in Biddeford. He's serving in his second term as a State Legislator, where he serves on the Criminal Justice Committee. As an Independent legislator, Marty has had great success working with both sides of the aisle. He's been ranked the most bipartisan member of the legislature, as well as "Legislator of the Year" by both the Maine Association of Realtors and the American Legion. He received the President's Award from the Maine Sheriffs Association, and was named an honorary life member of the Vietnam Veterans of America. Marty lives in Biddeford with his wife Amy, their two children Hannah and Henry, and their dog Milo.
