The British Chambers of Commerce is delighted that its former Director General Dr Adam Marshall, has been appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list for services to UK business.

Adam, who is a Senior Adviser to Flint Global and the Chartered Management Institute, as well as a Non-Executive Director of the UK Trade Remedies Authority, was Director General of the BCC for 5 years before stepping down in March 2021. He was a key member of BCC staff for more than 11 years, beginning his time with organisation in 2009 as Executive Director of Policy and External Affairs. Adam is also a long-standing trustee of the Industry and Parliament Trust, a charity linking Parliamentarians and senior civil servants to industry and businesses of all sizes.

Adam was a greatly respected leader and valued colleague at the British Chambers of Commerce and across the accredited Chamber network. He made a huge contribution to business communities across the UK and everyone at the organisation and the wider network are thrilled to see him honoured in this way.
