Reporting to commercial director Niels de Vos, Price will work alongside

marketing manager Tony Hill to promote the games as an event for the

whole nation and underline the importance of bringing such a large

sporting event to the UK at the beginning of the new millennium. The

committee currently retains local PR agency Mason Williams, but Price is

’considering other options’ with regard to the possible appointment of

another agency.
