By the UK Prime Minister
Condé Nast International president Nicholas Coleridge (pictured above) has a new prestigious title – that of chairman for the Victoria & Albert Museum (V&A) in London. Coleridge was appointed by the UK Prime Minister David Cameron, and replaces Paul Ruddock, who has been chairman of the iconic museum for the past eight years.
Coleridge will begin his four year contract in November, he has been a trustee of the V&A since 2012 and will work closely with V&A director Martin Roth. Upcoming projects that will require his attention include a potential V&A site at the Olympic grounds in East London, a new extension and entrance slated for 2017 and the debut of the V&A Museum of Design in Dundee in 2018, alongside fundraising prospects.
