Emma Ball

NEC Group Arenas

With a previous background in sports, leisure and marketing, Emma took up the role of Arenas Event Manager with the NEC  Group in Birmingham back in 2000.

Ten years (and 2 children!) later, she moved direction within the Group and now is an Operations Manager for both Resorts World Arena and Utilita Arena Birmingham.

A varied role which sees her working on FM Contracts, service delivery, building aesthetics and Capex projects, retail and commercial opportunities, innovation and accessibility matters to name a few.

While not a sustainability expert, Emma has been instrumental in driving and developing both green innovation and awareness through the NEC Arenas division over the past few years.  She now sits on the newly created NEC ESG working group and on the NAA Facilities Group where Sustainability is high on the agenda.
