A passion for photography has helped Chris Horn to excel in his role as software development manager for CDN.
On weekdays Chris is a dedicated manager, steering software development and making crucial decisions behind his laptop.
On weekends he swaps the laptop for the comforts of a camera, focussing on landscape, new born, event and sports photography.
“My passion is software development and photography,” he said.
“Getting about on a weekend and taking photographs is both enjoying and rewarding.
“It puts me in a good frame of mind for the week, and is a perfect balance alongside my work with CDN.”
Chris’s enjoyment for photography began 20 years ago and he has since created a small business, working alongside his wife, called Horn Photographics.
His keen eye for detail and producing quality work also overlaps into his role with CDN.
“The most enjoyable part of my job is designing solutions to problems faced by our customers,” Chris said.
“I’ve been with CDN for a decade, where I started as a senior developer in 2008.
“Four years later the assistant software manager duties were added to my role, before I became the software development manager in 2014.”
Chris also has a strong background in the industry.
“Before CDN I spent five years as an analyst programmer in the transport industry, working for DHL across three different divisions of the company,” he said.
“I started with DHL Express, then Global forwarding and finally moving to Supply chain.
“Prior to DHL I worked at WebCentral. This where I got my big break in IT as a Technical Account Manager, and looking after corporate customers’ dedicated hosting environments and datacentre services.”
