In this role, Knight will be responsible for overseeing all legal services and providing counsel on a broad range of legal, risk, business, and operational matters for MMNA, including product liability, class action litigation, regulatory affairs, labor and employment, and dealer franchise agreements. She will be located at the company’s new US headquarters offices in Franklin, Tennessee, and will report to Mr Fred Diaz, MMNA’s president and CEO. Ms Knight also will be a member of the company’s Executive Committee.

Ms Knight brings extensive experience in private and corporate practice, serving for several years as external commercial and business litigation counsel before transitioning into in-house roles.

Joining Dollar General Corporation in 2010, and subsequently Nissan North America, Inc. in 2016, she honed skills that allow her to provide strategic guidance and partnership across all business functions, improve legal and enterprise risk mitigation and regulatory compliance, optimize litigation management, reduce costs, and streamline processes.
