(SFC) The Rome 2024 Olympic bid has made some major announcements recently as they move forward with their bid for the 2024 Olympic Summer Games.

The Rome 2024 Olympic bid made two new office appointments. Simone Perillo has been named the International Relation and Planning Manager, and Claudia Bugno has been named General Coordinator. In the past, Perillo worked closely with Rome 2024 bid President, Luca di Montezemolo, and was the former General Secretary of the Formula One Team Association. As for Bugno, she will be combining her new role with her current job as General Director in the Italian government's Ministery of Economic Development department. 

The bid committee also announced the location of its headquarters. Their offices will be in the Park of the Foro Italico, which houses the Italian Olympic Committee's headquarters, along with the 1960 Olympic Stadium. 

In addition, CONI Servizi SpA has been engaged by Rome 2024 to aid them in their Olympic bid quest. CONI Servizi is the operating company for the Italian Olympic Committee, and is owned by the Ministry of Economic Development. They will hold a key role in engaging with the community, and promoting the awareness of the bidding profile. 

Currently, the only confirmed bids for the 2024 Games are Rome and Boston. Germany is set to make an announcement, next week, concerning their candidate city of either Berlin or Hamburg. Other possible contenders could include Doha, Budapest and Paris.
