Nye Hornor, President
Nye says, “Turning around a job to help a customer meet a deadline or helping a co-worker come up with a solution is truly what makes my job meaningful.” Read on to get to know a little more about Amherst Label’s Nye Hornor.
1) How would you describe your BACKGROUND?
I was in the food industry for almost 16 years, starting as a dishwasher and moving up to Food and Beverage Manager for a resort in Colorado. I worked summers in Maine as a kid and then worked after college (University of Vermont), before moving to Winterpark, CO. After returning to New England, I changed careers and moved into Label manufacturing—for the past 21 years.
One surprise might be that I competed in the US Tennis Nationals at the 4.5 level in Arizona. My father was a professional tennis instructor when I was growing up, so I started playing when I was very young. I played competitively in high school and then took it up as an adult. I played my first US tennis Association match at the Winchester Tennis Center, the last place my father taught.
Watching my children grow up and play sports. I have been blessed with each child having a special talent and being able to watch them. Thomas played soccer, football, basketball and lacrosse all competitively. Carolyn has played soccer and lacrosse, dances, and now is acting. Hadley has played soccer, lacrosse, dances, and plays the ukulele. I really enjoy skiing with all of my family.
