Cody Knight
CEO

Cody discovered his entrepreneurial passion for business very early in life. As a young teenager, Cody began working for Knight Transportation where he worked hard to learn every position in the company and eventually climbed the corporate ladder to head his own division. Under Cody’s leadership, the Rocky Mountain division was not only the fasting growing, but also the most profitable division in the number one ranked trucking company in the world. Cody oversaw every aspect of the business, including operations, financial growth, client services and employee retention. His outstanding leadership capabilities helped build Knight into the multi-billion dollar corporation that it is today.

After 12 years in the transportation industry, Cody changed career paths and began working for a Scottsdale public relations agency. Throughout this time, Cody realized his true passion fell in the marketing field. He was able to work alongside several businesses by becoming a trusted extension of their teams and helping to build their successes. His professional experiences taught him the importance of treating coworkers and clients the right way and he was able to transfer his leadership and customer service skills into the PR world. In 2015, he and his wife Erica formed The Knight Agency, a PR and marketing agency with a family-atmosphere that Cody describes as “a team putting goals into action and always exceeding expectations.”

Cody is a graduate of Weber State University in Ogden, Utah and currently resides in Scottsdale, Arizona with his wife Erica and son Preston.

Erica Knight
President

Though she is well established in the valley, Erica’s experience as a public relations professional has taken her from coast to coast, and even overseas. As a student at Arizona State University, Erica traveled to Spain where she became interested in how international companies market to different cultures. After graduating from ASU with a double major in business communications and Spanish, Erica worked for a Scottsdale athlete management firm. Working with high-profile NFL athletes, she mastered the business of media relations working directly with media outlets like ESPN, the Today Show and Dr. Oz and sponsors like Gatorade, Kellogg’s and 24 Fitness. After four years, Erica worked at a Scottsdale PR and marketing firm where she managed and built her own PR department. In April 2015, Erica and her husband Cody started The Knight Agency, with the desire to share their values – integrity, informed results and authentic relationships – with local Arizona and national clients.

Olivia Knight
Director of First Impressions

When Olivia arrived at The Knight Agency, she made some serious changes to the status quo around the office. For example, we told Olivia we like to dress business casual, but on the first day she strutted in with a pink, diamond-studded collar (try telling her she’s over-dressed; she’ll just wink at you and laugh). Olivia is full of pizzazz and a never-ending supply of energy. Sometimes when she perceives office morale is low, or when she notices some drooping eyelids after lunch, she will politely nibble at our skirts or pant legs, inviting us to take a walk outside to wake up the brain. Naturally, she accompanies us on these walks to make sure we don’t get lost. Because of her vivaciousness, we named her “Head of Office Experience and Events.” It’s someone’s birthday? Olivia’s always at the party. One of the interns makes a great joke? Olivia laughs the loudest. Cody is on the winning basketball team during his morning workout? You can bet it’s Olivia who is the first to give a hi-five. In short, our little Shih Tzu is the glue that holds The Knight Agency together.
