Marlborough College Malaysia is not a franchise but a genuine expansion of Marlborough College in Wiltshire, England.

The operating company in Malaysia of Marlborough College Malaysia is called M East Sdn Bhd, directed almost entirely by old pupils of Marlborough College.

They are: Tunku Ali Redhauddin Tuanku Muhriz (Chairman), Dr C J Lim, Wan Adlan Wan Abdul Rahman, HY Lau, Jessie Soon, Guan Hock Chua, Richard Fleck, Thye Seng Chan, Dato' Ka Wei Siew, Shahryn Azmi, Thomas Kirkwood and John Baker. The College Council is completed by the current, and the previous, Master of Marlborough College UK, Jonathan Leigh and Nick Sampson.

Bob Pick, Master of MCM comments: “Good governance is vital in the running of any educational establishment. The help and support of this group has been invaluable in both the establishment and the continuing development of the College. Their love of Marlborough, what it represents and how it should be portrayed in Malaysia has been clearly evident and I am most grateful for their immense contribution, which I know will continue in the years ahead. This group plus members within the Senior Management team of MCM contribute over one hundred years of first-hand Marlborough experience.”
