The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) has hired Jonathan Neill as a commercial consultant.

Neill has been brought in to develop a new commercial strategy for the organization.

Neill has over 20 years of experience, having previously held various brand and rights-holder roles within the sports industry, including as a commercial director for the 2021 Rugby League World Cup.
