    Meet the Owners: Karen and Tony Knuckles


    Karen and Tony share a vision and a passion for helping people and companies succeed by matching good people with good positions and have done so in Spartanburg since 2007. 


    Karen's very first job out of high school was working for an employment agency.  Owning Express Employment Professionals has allowed her to return to her roots and passion.


    Prior to opening the Express office in Spartanburg, Karen was the SR. VP and HR Director at Keybank and previously held HR and Tax Accounting positions at Eaton Corporation and a Johnson and Johnson affiliate company.  She has an MBA in Business Administration.


    Prior to owning Express, Tony was a licensed electrician and also the owner of a commercial services company.  Opening the office also allowed him to return to his roots.  His father was born in Spartanburg and lived here as a child.


    Tony and Karen are natives of Cleveland, Ohio but extremely proud to now call Spartanburg "Home".  


    Karen is an active member of the Spartanburg community and serves on the Executive Board of Directors for the Spartanburg Chamber of Commerce; the Finance and HR Committee of the Mary Black Foundation; the Regional Advisory Council of the Carolinas Virginia Minority Supplier Development Council.
