Queen honours SummitSkills chief
Keith joined SummitSkills as chief executive in 2003, where he led the organisation through its licensing in 2004 and, later in 2007, the award of its second contract.

Marshall began his career as a weapons electrical engineer for the Royal Navy. His commitment to training began in 1985 when he joined the Engineering Industry Training Board.

Marshall worked on the first occupational standards in engineering, NVQs and the first engineering modern apprenticeship framework. He also worked with the Engineering Council on the introduction of competence based registration for professional engineers.

His contribution to skills development continued with directorships in both the Training Standards Council and the Adult Learning Inspectorate.

Marshall said “I am delighted and honoured that my contribution to the skills agenda has been recognised in this way. It has made me stop and think, and realise that I have worked in the skills arena for over 20 years, before the days of NVQs'.
