Philip Marshall 4The London Library is delighted to welcome Philip Marshall who takes up his position this week as the new Director of The London Library following the recent retirement of Librarian and Chief Executive, Inez Lynn.

Philip has held senior commercial and business development roles in a number of high profile UK cultural organisations, including the British Museum, Sadler’s Wells and the Royal Albert Hall. His experience in revenue and membership development fits directly with a key area of strategic focus for The London Library as it looks to strengthen its position as the world’s largest independent lending library while enhancing its collection and the services it provides to its members.

Philip commented: “The London Library has been supporting, inspiring and delighting readers and writers for nearly two centuries. I am thrilled to be joining this wonderful organisation.”

Sir Howard Davies, Chairman of The London Library concluded, “We are delighted at the appointment of Philip Marshall who will help ensure that the Library enhances its position as one of the country’s great cultural institutions and centres for learning.”
