Amazing things Ragnar's made
Ragnar skis competitively every year and is currently ranked #6 in Visma Ski Classics’ global ranking for the 55-59 age group in cross-country skiing. He enters into the Visma Ski Classics, a commercially sponsored international long-distance cross-country skiing cup competition. In 2020 alone he competed in three races, the 62km La Diagonela in Switzerland, the 70km Marcialonga in Italy, and the 90km Vasaloppet in Sweden. In an extended expression of his passion for the sport, my company is also a co-sponsor for Team Ragde Eiendom, widely known as the best professional ski marathon racing team in the world.

Horn is also actively engaged in multiple philanthropic ventures. He serves on the Board of various charities, including his position on the Global Leadership Council at Right To Play. Horn is also an avid supporter of the organization Restore The Music UK, which champions local music programs within London’s public schools, and provides needed materials to achieve this mission.

Ragnar’s work ethic is unrivaled, driven not by his desire for prestige but a personal commitment to success in everything he endeavors. In an uncertain world he embodies dependability, and has proven time and time again that he will go above and beyond to ensure that he can be relied on to keep his promises. No matter how tight the deadline or heated the tempers I am consistently blown away by his grace under pressure, showing poise and respect for those he is working with even in trying situations. “Good enough” is not good enough for Ragnar. He puts his passion behind even the most mundane tasks, ensuring that everything he has a hand in is to the impeccable standards he holds. His enthusiasm for embracing challenges is infectious, and his competitive spirit motivates those at all levels of his company to continually seek better and more innovative answers. While he takes his work seriously, he holds no self-important airs and maintains a sense of humor that is infectious.
