Back in the year 2000, Analox still operated with backup zip drives and a poor internet connection to one computer. Deciding that more investment into IT was needed a job advert was issued for a new IT Manager and along came Chris Martin for an interview. 20 years later, Chris now leads the IT team but with slightly more hardware and software to take charge of.
Since starting with Analox 20 years ago, Chris has introduced many new systems to Analox including Cloud based working, server systems, setting up an office in the US and most recently helping the company achieve cyber security status in line with modern security standards
Of his time at Analox Chris said “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time at Analox on the whole, through all the many ups and downs. From the satisfaction of introducing new systems and services that help people do their jobs more efficiently, to the stress of sleeping on the office floor over the weekend while trying to recover the system from a major outage. Overall though the good times have massively outweighed the bad, and through many personal ups and downs, my Analox colleagues have been nothing but supportive and helpful. Genuinely couldn’t ask for a better place to work.”
Ian Batchelor, Financial Director added ‘Having Chris join us has helped Analox progress into the digital era. He has created a safe and secure IT system which allows our teams to work effectively from both the HQ in North Yorkshire to our US Office in California.’
Julie Cole, HR Manager said ‘It is great to see yet another Analox employee celebrating such a long work anniversary with us. 2020 has been filled with lots of bad news due to COVID-19 so it is so refreshing to share such happy work news instead. Thanks to Chris for 20 great years, he is a huge part of Analox and we look forward to him working with us for many years to come.’
