With days to go until the opening ceremony of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, we are packing our bags at PI HQ. Andrew will be joining Team GB as Media Manager at British House. British House is a unique three way arrangement between the British Olympic Association, the Mayor of London and HM Government’s The Great Britain Campaign and is the official home of all things British at the Games.

Andrew will be joined by Jess Padley and Carol Austin, two highly experienced communications professionals. Jess has just finished with the #EveryRoadtoRio campaign and Carol is just back from the IAAF World U20 Championships in Poland. We’ve all been getting to know each other over the past few months and it’s fair to say that the mood is good!
In the wider Team GB Comms Team we are also delighted that PI stalwart, Mary Fitzhenry, will be managing the Team GB Press Office at the Main Press Centre. We know that therefore things will stay calm no matter what as Mary brings her legendary unflappability and excellent organisational skills to bear.
