Within the Baldwin Wallace University School of Business, Marshall directs the Digital Marketing Clinic, an experiential learning program that connects groups of talented students to local small businesses and nonprofit organizations in need of affordable marketing services and strategy development. He also teaches various marketing courses and advises marketing majors on course selection and career planning.

Prior to joining the School of Business, Marshall served as Chief Brand Strategist for The Fairmount Group, an integrated marketing communications consultancy.

Also at BW, Marshall was the recipient of the 2017 Technologically Enhancing Pedagogy Award,  selected for incorporating innovative technology and collaboration tools into various courses. Alongside faculty from Sciences Po Lille in France, Tecnologico de Monterrey in Guadalajara, the University of Toronto and eight other campuses, in 2016 Marshall was one of 12 professors in the world accepted into the Sysomos in the Classroom program, which brought an extensive suite of social listening technology to BW for coursework and other scholarship.

Marshall has presented and moderated panels on digital marketing strategy and educational technology at national and regional conferences, including the Midwest Marketing Summit, ProfCon, Blackboard World, the Flipped Learning Network FlipTech Conference, Greater Cleveland Partnership Internship Summit, Forum for Volunteer Administrators and others. He is a judge in the annual Content Marketing Institute Content Marketing Awards and has reviewed manuscript and conference proposals for the digital marketing publishing company, Stukent, and the Association for Educational Communications and Technology (AECT), respectively.
