Joanna Manning-Cooper, the head of PR and media at the London 2012 Olympics, is joining the organisation tasked with running the 2015 Rugby World Cup in England, in the top marketing and communications role.

Manning-Cooper was one of the key figures overseeing the communications of the London 2012 Olympics.
