5 minutes with… Matt Horsey
What’s your role at MD?
I am the Technical Director.
Best part of the job?
Developing new products with our customers and the engineering team.
Worst part of the job?
Working away from my young family.
What would you be doing if you weren’t working at MD?
I’d like to think I’d be working in the outdoors as I love being in the countryside. Maybe a land manager for an estate.
What’s the weirdest drink you’ve ever drank?
A white spirit, drunk from a snakes mouth. The snake (pickled in the spirit) had two ribbons tied around it to pull it out of the bottle.
What’s your motto?
Don’t bring me problems, bring me solutions and we’ll work from there.
The best invention you’ve ever seen
MiniDisc… hahaha, not really! The development of the steam engine fascinates me and has contributed so much to the modern world.
Beer or soft drink?
What inspires you?
Working with the next generation of engineers, whether that be our apprentices or my son, their enthusiasm is fantastic.
Your favourite drink in a can?
I drink a lot of canned beers, two recent ones that stick in the mind are Elements Farmhouse Saison, and Mothership Brut Pale Ale.
