 Meet Biz Award Winner: Emilea Lopez

Biz Awards

Congratulations to Emilea Lopez who won Employee of the year at our 2018 Biz Awards that were held on May 24th.

The category of Employee Of The Year recognises an employee who continuously goes above and beyond in their job role, making exceptional contributions to their business. Competing against two other finalists (David Farthing from Screen Pages and Emily Yeardley from Barkerlaw LLP) Emilea won the award.

Emilea joined Knights Group in 2010 at the age of 16 and underwent an NVQ Level 2 Apprenticeship. Although Emilea was too young to officially work, she would attend event days as a volunteer to aid the Manning Managers with administrative tasks. Fast forward to the age of 19, Emilea joined Knights Group full-time as a Staffing Manager. Now at the age of 24, Emilea has successfully established business relationships with all clients and continues to show dedication, hard work and determination every day.

Jamie Knights, Director said “I remember when Emilea first started working with us as a steward at our events. She stood out from most others as she had a positive attitude, was really smartly dressed, was really keen to impress and was always the first person to turn up.

Before the Olympic Games we had a few dilemmas and had to step people up into management roles. We threw Emilea in the deep end by asking her to manage and supervise all the staff at the London 2012 Olympic Games and the World Media Centre. She ran it so smoothly that we just forgot about it and it allowed us to crack on with our other venues.

She later applied for the Staffing Manager’s role within the HQ Office, she is now a well-known favourite at all of our venues and she’s taken our Operations team into a different direction. I am so proud of Emilea and all her achievements throughout her employment with the Group. She deserves the award for the amount of hours she puts in and the dedication she shows on a daily basis.”



Here is what Emilea had to say on her win:
