Former Sport England CEO Jennie Price has joined global strategy consultancy Portas Consulting as an expert adviser.

Price has been tasked with advising Portas and its clients to "harness the power of sport and physical activity".

Portas has offices on four continents and works with a number of sports organisations and national and local governments on sports and activity policy and implementation.

“Jennie shares our passion and commitment to improving the lives of people through participation in sport and physical activity," said David Portas, managing partner.

"Her reputation internationally, with her track record and experience, will complement our growing global business."

Price added: “Portas Consulting helps to shape the approach to sport and physical activity in many countries around the world, and this is an exciting opportunity to apply what I have learned to develop new ideas and projects in an international setting.”

A lawyer by training, Price led Sport England from 2007 to November 2018 and was responsible for creating the grassroots sports agency's current strategy, Towards an Active Nation.

She was awarded a CBE for services to sport in 2017.
