The people who make up our team at Knight Eady serve as the company’s greatest assets. Each individual brings a different strength, personality and energy to the team, which creates a dynamic work environment. Although we work extremely hard for our partners, we also make plenty of room for having fun together because we are firm believers in work life integration. From lake and beach trips to attending sporting events and playing on a Kickball team (and winning the championship), we genuinely consider one another friends.
Knight Eady relies heavily on Michael because of his gift in overseeing events, staff, logistics, operations and detail and because he is the hardest working member of the team. Michael came to Knight Eady from Samford University where he served in the athletics department for four and half years including the position as Assistant Director of Athletics for Operations and Facilities. Before his time at Samford, Michael earned his Master’s degree in Sports Management from The University of Tennessee, where he assisted with the Lady Volunteer event management department (and became an avid Vols fan) and received his undergraduate degree from Henderson State University in Arkansas. Clearly Michael has a strong background in athletics and event operations, so he brings a great deal of experience and knowledge to Knight Eady as the Director of Event Operations. He oversees the “behind the scenes” operations for all Knight Eady run events, as well as events we are hired to run, including the National Senior Games and NCAA Women's Gymnastics. Apart from work, Michael enjoys spending time with his wife, Brandi and their sons, Noah and Samuel in their neighborhood in Homewood, as well as running and visiting the beach.
