What drives me


Personal Growth

Acquiring new knowledge in areas of technology and leadership keeps me motivated to try new challenges. I enjoy the richness of life a little bit better every day due to the learnings from various experiences. They have equipped me to be a logical thinker, present in the moment, and experience deeper emotions and empathise and connect with people around me.

You can read about a part of my journey in this article: A guide to being at peace with personal growth.


Catalyse Positive Change

The opportunity for rapid positive change is all around us. Sometimes all we need is the right connection, encouragement or resolution of a blocker. It is incredible to see outcomes emerge when we connect people, technology and processes from disparate places to bring out a novel solution to an existing problem.

Human-centred Decision Making

Hey, it’s not personal, it’s just business!

In reality, everything is personal, and everything is business. The work that we do, however small or large it is, is a contribution to our society. We live in a world where an individual cannot cater to all of his/her needs.

Once we realise this, we understand that everything we do, affects the people around us, so why not be conscious and aware of it to make better everyday decisions and derive more satisfaction from our work? 

Purpose and the satisfaction that the purpose improves the world is a great generator for self-motivation.


Community Contributions

Be the agent of change that you want to drive. Work is a very structured way to contribute to society. However, there are huge pockets of opportunities where your skill or care can make a significant difference in an unattended space in your immediate neighbourhood.

Be it providing technical guidance to a public school, or even rushing to check in on a neighbour, where a family member couldn’t reach them, there are a lot of things that make this place a caring and beautiful place to be in.

Years of Experience


Colleagues mentored




Revenue Budgets

I was impressed by Horay’s refreshing no-nonsense approach to creating structure, solving complex problems, and addressing commercial/logistic problems. Horay’s approach is diplomatic yet frank and effective at creating good outcomes for all involved.  

Lex Giezen

He has the skillset to review a contract like a lawyer, talk about technical matters like a good techie and show a lot of maturity and experience when reviewing project delivery. Houratious identified key strategic technology areas, empowered the next level leadership by providing them necessary autonomy, and he was always there when he was needed.
