Ned Horton

What Ned finds most satisfying about being at the helm of Horton Group and Horton Design is working with clients, addressing their needs, marketing their businesses, brainstorming and delivering new systems and web-based applications that can move their businesses forward by leaps and bounds.

Ned is a media and communications specialist. After graduating from Bowdoin College he went into radio sales, marketing and ownership. In 1991 Ned received an MBA from Vanderbilt's Owen Graduate School of management.  In 1996 he took another path, opening the doors to Horton Group, inspired by the emerging media of the Internet as a "new and vital distribution channel."

He believes a work environment should promote collaboration, noting that many parts of his life involves teamwork, from what he does at Horton Design to coaching youth teams to playing soccer after work. On a typical day, Ned writes proposals, talks with clients and reviews mock-ups and prototypes. The end goal is always to capture the essence of a business, product or service, just as he tries to capture a scene as an amateur photographer.
