Jennie Price, the chief executive of Sport England, has been recognised in the Queen’s birthday honours list.

Price, who has been with the grassroots sports quango for a decade, was awarded the Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (CBE).

She was recognised alongside other personalities from the world of sport, such as Judy Murray, two-time Olympic gold medallist Heather Stanning (both OBE) and Danny Kerry (MBE), who was coach of the Great Britain hockey team that won gold at Rio 2016.

Price said she was “surprised” and “extremely honoured” to be included.

“It is a real recognition of Sport England’s work in recent years, and is based on the efforts and achievements of a great staff team and set of partners with whom I am privileged to work,” she added.

The chief executive joined Sport England in 2007 and was behind a big grassroots sport push coinciding with London hosting the Olympics in 2012.

More recently, it launched its flagship This Girl Can campaign that was responsible for introducing 2.8m women to short and physical activity.

Price is also steering the organisation through a period of change in relation to its funding decisions as a result of the government’s Sporting Future sport strategy, which has placed the emphasis on physical activity as opposed to organised sport.
