Another accolade: The V&A director has bagged a ‘transforming Scotland’ award


Philip Long, director of the V&A, has bagged an award for ‘transforming Scotland’ at the institute of Directors Scotland awards.

IoD Scotland chair Aidan O’Carroll said:

The V&A Dundee has become a beacon of success for Scotland and a focal point in the transformation of Dundee, and in particular, its waterfront. Since opening less than a year ago, the V&A Dundee has already become one of the most popular attractions in the country and Philip Long has been fundamental to this.

Statistics are there to back up the claims that the V&A has completely transformed tourism in Dundee and beyond.

Don’t believe us? Check out the video below.

The V&A kick started a vibrant renaissance in Dundee back in September 2018, and has won multiple awards and prestigious titles since.

The winners of the 11 national director of the year categories will progress to the prestigious UK Director of the Year Awards in London in October.

Congratulations to Philip Long and the rest of the winners.
