Former Bulldogs Player Appointed As New General Manager Of Football


Former Bulldogs player and club legend, Steve Price, has been appointed as the new General Manager of Football and will stand down from his current role as a member of the Bulldogs Football Club Board.

Price played 222 matches for the Bulldogs during an illustrious career and was a member of the 1995 and 2004 Premiership winning teams.

He also captained the 2004 side throughout that season before injury ruled him out of the Grand Final.

He is currently in a management role with Westfund Health Insurance after successfully running his own business and completing his MBA studies.

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 here at the Bulldogs is to return to adopting a development club philosophy.

“With the formation of stronger ties to Country New South Wales and a commitment to our local Junior League and Pathways system, we felt that Steve was the perfect person to bring all these pieces together.

“With the recent appointment of Jack Mesley as Chief Commercial Officer and Stacie Brand as Membership and Fan Engagement Manager, we are continuing our long term plan to recruit and develop the best people, on and off the field.”

Price was excited about what lies ahead for the club: “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 3 years that also gave me a wealth of experience and knowledge I didn’t previously have.

“I am really looking forward to working with everyone at the Bulldogs and to continue building towards making this club great again.”
