Mike Agnew
VP, Localisation Solutions
Localization Solutions, a group within Ellucian R&D, are responsible for identifying and defining through to customer success of regulatory and market requirements - both local and regional - for all Ellucian software products around the world. Localization Solutions actively engage with external (governmental) agencies and bodies, and customers, in order to determine these requirements. The translation of Ellucian products, into a variety of languages, also fall under the group’s remit. Localization Solutions were established last year from the International Solution Centre development groups which Michael ran successfully for around 10 years delivering localized software in region and throughout the world. Michael is an Agile software development professional. He is based out of Ellucian’s Amsterdam, Netherlands office.

Prior to Ellucian, Mike gathered a wealth of international software development experience as both a Project Manager and Software Development Manager with roles in Norway, United Kingdom, Germany and Ireland. This international travel has not only taken him to many countries, but also taught him a number of languages along the way.

Michael has a BSc.Computer Science (Honours) from the University of Strathclyde and an MBA (Merit) NIMBAS/University of Bradford which he received in 2004.
