Price is right for new GM position

CANTERBURY Bankstown Bulldogs have appointed club legend Steve Price as their new general manager of football.

Price, who played for the Bulldogs on 222 occasions and was a member of the 1995 and 2004 Premiership winning teams, will step down from his role as football club director to take up the appointment.
The former skipper is currently in a management role with Westfund Health and will bring his football and corporate experience to the job.
Price says he is excited about what lies ahead: “I am extremely proud to have been appointed as general manager of football at the Bulldogs.
“During my playing career, I completed my MBA and once I retired worked outside of the game and found it extremely beneficial to get a different perspective to the one I had as a player.
“I ran my own business in New Zealand for three years that also gave me a wealth of experience.
“I am really looking forward to working with everyone at the Bulldogs and to continue building towards making this club great again.”
Bulldogs Chief Executive Andrew Hill was delighted at being able to add to the strength of the Bulldogs Football Department by appointing someone of Price’s pedigree and background.
“After spending some time making sure that we found the right person, Steve was the outstanding candidate that came out of our interview process,” Hill said.
“Part of our long-term planning is to return to adopting a development club philosophy.
“With the formation of stronger ties to Country NSW and commitment to our Junior League and Pathways system, we felt that Steve was the perfect person to bring all of these pieces together.
“He also has a unique ability to be able to link our past to our future and will bring a strong vision around the development of culture and family values at our club.”
