Back to all stories | Posted on 27 January 21 in News

Keli Marshall is a passionate, committed leader that focuses on building strong teams with a heart for building community and investing in people.

Keli’s career began when she and her husband Peter started a successful business together in 1995: Marshalls Clothing Company. For 11 years the business grew and expanded globally through their storefront and online business. In 2006, they sold their business to free themselves to spend more time serving in missions together.

While working for the next 7 years as an Area Sales Manager and Training Ambassador for Mexx Canada, Keli was also involved in mission work overseas. Her participation in supporting the development and expansion of the church in 8 countries exposed her to the opportunities to impact lives globally. Keli has a passion to lead and serve in faith-based work and believes she can make a difference in the world by devoting her time and strengths to a charitable organization. Keli then joined World Vision Canada and for the next 5 ½ years she had the privilege to lead, build and execute the strategic vision of volunteer engagement with her most recent role as Director, Entertainment Partnerships, Events & Volunteer Engagement.

The desires of her heart are to make an impact in the lives of those around her, here in Canada and around the world. Keli is honoured to join the Mary’s Meals Canada team and is excited to invest in the building of the organization across Canada. She looks forward to applying the skills she has learned in both for-profit and non-profit so that more children will have the food that they need while attending school – together we will make a difference!

On a personal note, Keli and her husband Peter just celebrated 20 years of marriage and they live in Erin, Ontario. Keli has a love for travel and adventure. She can be found either on her dirt bike at the cottage in Muskoka, surfing at a beach in Mexico, or out for a hike with her Hungarian Vizsla Rogan.
