Martin Roth to replace Mark Jones as Director

Martin Roth will step up to fill the position of Director of the Victoria and Albert Museum and replace Mark Jones, who has been acting director since 2001. Jones is going onto take the position of Master of St. Cross College at Oxford University. Roth is leaving the Dresden State Art Collection in Germany where he was General Director to lead the self proclaimed world leader in art and design.

Roth is welcomed into an institution with big plans for future development. Just one month ago the museum announced the winning architect, Amanda Levete, for the planned $56 million expansion that will increase exhibition space and add a courtyard.

The new director is highly qualified with much experience managing, maintaining, and growing refined arts institutions. While at Dresden Roth was known for renovations and reconstructions and will surely take the Victoria and Albert Museum into the future with great strides.
