SANDY Crombie, chief executive of Edinburgh-based financial institution Standard Life, said he was "delighted and very proud" to be knighted for services to the insurance industry in Scotland.
Standard Life is one of the few pillars of the Scottish financial establishment to have been left unshaken by the credit crunch.
Sir Sandy, 59, said: "I cannot accept this recognition without paying tribute to my family for their support, and to everyone at Standard Life who has contributed to the company's success."
He has been with Standard Life for 42 years, seeing it develop into a major international player.
He led its demutualisation and flotation on the London Stock Exchange in 2006 in what was seen at the time as a major U-turn for an insurer that had been a mutual since 1925.
He is a member of the Scottish Government's financial services strategy group.
• PROFESSOR Anne Glover, chief scientific adviser for Scotland, is made a CBE for services to environmental science. She was appointed two years ago to enhance Scotland's image as a "science nation".
Prof Glover, who is based at Aberdeen University, was seconded to the Scottish Government to provide advice to ministers and co-ordinate science policy across Holyrood.
She said her role was also to make science and new discoveries exciting to non-scientists.
At Aberdeen her work has increased scientists' ability to track micro-organisms by making them glow in the dark.
This luminescence reveals their location and also indicates how healthy they are. This makes them ideal sensors to detect contamination in water and soil.
She was born in Arbroath, went to school in Dundee, has a degree from Edinburgh and a doctorate from Cambridge.
• WHEN retired school janitor Douglas MacNeilage discovered that he was among a high profile list of sports stars and celebrities to be honoured by the Queen, he could not believe it.
The 65-year-old, who until August worked at Tobermory High School, was made an MBE for services to education and to Mull community.
"I was gobsmacked when I found out. I feel very humble," he said.
"There are so many people who do so much to deserve these awards.
"I was really taken aback and did not expect it."
Mr MacNeilage worked at the school for eight-and-a-half years before retiring.
Before that he worked as a dustman, butcher and at a local distillery.
He is also a session clerk for Tobermory Parish Church, a member of the Mull Fiddlers and chairman of the local RNLI.
• DR Andrew Cubie, who is to be knighted, is best known for the deal over student tuition fees which helped unite Labour and the Liberal Democrats in Scotland's first coalition government in 1999. His committee came up with a compromise, abolishing fees but instituting a payment after graduation.
Dr Cubie, already a CBE, is now, without doubt, one of the "great and the good" in Scottish society. The list of his appointments, posts and responsibilities seems to lengthen every year.
The 62-year-old lawyer – born in Northallerton in North Yorkshire and educated at Dollar Academy and Edinburgh University – served for 12 years on the court of Napier University in Edinburgh, and was chairman for the last six years.
He also chairs the UK committee of Voluntary Service Overseas and is a trustee of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
MARINA Dalglish, the wife of Scotland football legend Kenny Dalglish, receives an OBE for her work raising 1.5 million for breast cancer patients after being diagnosed with the disease in 2003.
Retired Wick Hospital consultant Pradip Kumar Datta gets an OBE for his work training young consultants worldwide while raising funds for a women's leprosy colony in India.
RETIRED teacher Margaret Fish, who worked for 36 years at Park Primary School in Alloa, earns an OBE for becoming a pillar of the community and running numerous after-school clubs. She is praised for her years of "dedicated and unbroken service".
Isabelle Boyd, head of Cardinal Newman High School in Bellshill, receives a CBE.
Dr Isabel Bruce, vice-chair of the University of the West of Scotland, receives an OBE for services to higher education in Scotland and Malawi.
Professor Paul Wilkinson, a terrorism expert at St Andrew's University, becomes a CBE.
Professor Carole Hillenbrand, latterly head of Islamic studies at Edinburgh University, receives an OBE.
SINGER-songwriter John Martyn, who grew up in Glasgow and is known for the album Solid Air, has been awarded an OBE. Other celebrities to be honoured include Liz Smith, 87, who plays Nana in the Royle Family and receives an MBE; Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant, who becomes a CBE; and actor Michael Sheen, who played Tony Blair in The Queen, starring Dame Helen Mirren. He gets an OBE.
SCOTTISH Government official Nick Bowd, the head of procurement, becomes a CBE, while Hector Mackenzie, latterly of the health directorate, receives an OBE. Sir Nick Macpherson, the Permanent Secretary at the Treasury, is knighted for his efforts in tackling the global financial crisis. John Vaux, the former legal aide to the Commons Speaker Michael Martin, is made a CBE.
MAGGIE Fyffe, who helped residents of the Hebridean island of Eigg buy their island, has been made an MBE. Since then, she has tackled problems with absentee landlords and attracted jobs to the area.
Champion rower and charity fundraiser Owen McGhee, from Bridge of Weir, is similarly honoured. He has rowed for 50 years and raised funds for the Scottish Motor Neurone Disease Association.
GRAMPIAN Police Chief Constable Colin McKerracher becomes a CBE. The Queen's police medal is given to Daniel Lapsley, a constable with Strathclyde Police who patrols the islands of Tiree and Coll single-handedly.
The same honour goes to John Malcolm, now retired from Strathclyde Police but who led the investigation into the Glasgow Airport bombings, and to George Simpson, of Lothian and Borders Police. Now retired, he was Scotland's lead officer during the terrorist attacks on the United Kingdom in 2005.
The Queen's fire service medal goes to Dougie MacDonald, of Carrbridge, and Ian Stocks, now with Strathclyde Fire Brigade.
