Neil joined Marshall in September 2021 as transformation director, a newly-created role on the Marshall executive team with responsibility for driving a Marshall-wide transformation agenda.

Neil is an accomplished business leader with extensive global experience in the aerospace and defence sector.

Prior to joining Marshall, he gained experience across global operations, enterprise change management, lean leadership, customer management and relations. His early career in BAE Systems leading the aerostructures business provided the foundation for subsequent key leadership roles in Spirit AeroSystems, GKN Aerospace and, immediately before joining Marshall, as COO of Avic Cabin Systems.

Marshall CEO Kathy Jenkins said: “Marshall Aerospace is well-positioned for growth having won multiple new contracts and having expanded its export business four-fold over recent years.

“We are at a very important point in our long and illustrious history as we look to relocate our global aerospace headquarters to a new, purpose-built facility at Cranfield University and continue to expand our footprint overseas.

“I am delighted that Neil has agreed to take this pivotal role and know that his extensive experience within the aerospace and defence sector make him the ideal candidate to lead the business during this critical phase of its growth.”

Neil said: “I am very privileged to have been asked to lead what is an extraordinary business at such an exciting and important point in its development.

“As an independent British business with proven expertise, capability and an unrivalled reputation for quality and service we are ideally placed for further growth both in the UK and overseas.”

Marshall has seen a raft of changes in senior positions this year. In February, Jonathan Flint was appointed chairman designate of Marshall of Cambridge (Holdings) to will succeed Alex Dorrian as chairman on June 30.

Meanwhile Marshall Aerospace has underlined its credentials as the world’s leading Lockheed Martin approved C-130 Heavy Maintenance Centre for C-130J aircraft by securing a contract with Lockheed Martin to carry out the 12-year maintenance inspections on the Indian Air Force’s fleet of C-130J Super Hercules.
