Loyal to the brand

August Hangara speaks honestly about his life dreams and his passion for technology.

24 September 2021 | People

The first thing that strikes you when you meet August is his no-nonsense approach to life. This is matched by his love for everything around him – his wife and children, his farm animals, his work, and the great outdoors.

He has been with Paratus since the beginning, making his loyalty and staying power unquestionable. His influence is keenly felt at Paratus, and he relishes being part of the Paratus surge to even greater success.

He has been involved in some of the most ground-breaking and innovative projects since the company was founded. One such project was when Paratus created connectivity between Namibia and South Africa and laid equipment across the river. August’s love of computers is counter-balanced by his adoration for nature; he says if he weren’t working for Paratus, he would live on his farm and work as a nature conservationist.

He is married to Kathrina, who he admires most for her support and encouragement and, without her, he would not be where he is today. He also thanks her for being a great mother to their five children.

You know where you stand with August and his honesty is disarming, fair and straightforward. His influence is far reaching, and he loves to see his team flourish and develop under his watchful guidance. His driving force is his hunger for new information and experiences. He keeps up with technology, by listening to new ideas and looking at ways he can change the game and make operations work better and faster.

He is very excited about the future. Paratus is ‘thinking big’ and is currently busy with many new developments, including building of the landing station for the Google Equiano cable in Swakopmund and the new data centre which is under construction. August says: ‘Keep watching this space for further growth, Paratus will not disappoint when it comes to delivering Africa’s quality network.”

August is a no-nonsense, honest and straightforward man. He relishes positive feedback from clients. His ambition is to motivate and grow his team. He loves technology and keeping up with the constant pace of change. He is balanced in his approach, calm in a storm and is always looking to learn new things. He has a thirst for knowledge and for seeing the world.

He enjoys spending time on his farm with his wife and children.
