Over the last three years MSL has doubled its customer base every year. It is now looking to take its hugely versatile product into new markets.

Colin Watson will join MSL as its new CEO on Monday 6th October. Colin previously worked for Serco, where he led product strategy and development for their full K-12 and HE software and service portfolio. Prior to that he spent 18 years with RM Plc, culminating in his appointment as Managing Director of their Education Management Systems Division across the UK, Asia Pacific, and India.

The Chair of the Board, Jacqui Clements, commented as follows:

“The MSL Board are absolutely delighted with Colin’s appointment and are excited for both the team and most importantly for our clients. The MSL team work collaboratively with our clients to ensure our services are absolutely what they need to deliver for their members, and we are in no doubt that Colin will help us do this even better in the future.
