Noralyn Marshall
(Click on Picture to see Video of Award Presentation)
(QuickTime is required)

Earning her Bachelors degree in Economics from the University of California at Davis, Noralyn Marshall continued her education by earning her Masters in Economics from Purdue in 1967.

  Following her Masters, Noralyn went to Chile in conjunction with the Purdue Fellows in Latin America Program, and found on her return that the Economics faculty had changed significantly, leaving barely any faculty that she knew.  Due to the strong link between the Agricultural Economics Department and the Purdue Fellows, Noralyn made a shift to AgEcon. She earned her Ph.D. in 1972, working with Dr. Lee Schrader.  She was the first female to earn a Ph.D. in the department. As a result, Noralyn states that her AgEcon courses made the difference between being overly theoretical and having the rewarding career she has as an applied economist. 

  Noralyn Marshall began teaching at San Francisco State University, and then took a job with the Bank of America from 1973 to 1994.  While there she moved from San Francisco to New York and served as head of Country Risk Analysis for Latin America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and also held many other positions.  Exiting as Vice President and Head of Research for the Investment Banking and U.S. Divisions, Noralyn  took a job as the VP and Senior Sovereign Economist with Scotia Capital Markets in 1995. 

  Noralyn Marshall currently works for Maria Fiorini Ramiriz (MFR), Inc.  MFR's Global Market Commentary has distinguished itself as one of the premier sources of objective, timely and accurate forecasts of economic activity, short term movements in the bond and money markets, longer-term trends in interest rates, and monetary and fiscal policy developments. As a Senior Economist, Noralyn has extensive international and domestic economic and financial market experience, generating economic, financial and industry forecasts and analyses for sovereign and corporate credit risk assessments and asset allocations. She provides market commentary for fixed income and foreign exchange traders and clients.  

  Noralyn was the President of New York's Downtown Economist Club in 1996-1997, and the New York Association of Business Economists in2000-2001.

  Noralyn works out of New York City, and resides in Brooklyn, New York.
