Brothers follow father's footsteps

George Rubine

THERE is an old adage, "learn at your father's knee".

For brothers Solomone Nabete, 35, and Nokati Rogo, 29, the lessons they learned from their father have served them well.

Mr Nabete is the depot manager at Savusavu and Mr Rogo at Natua.

Their journey to Fulton Hogan Hiways started many years ago when they first travelled with their father, Solomone Nokati, who was employed as a road supervisor first for PWD then for the Fiji Roads Authority over a 30-year period.

"We travelled around Fiji with my father from depot to depot and our careers were certainly influenced by him," said Mr Nabete.

"I ended up with PWD where I worked for 13 years before making the change to Blacktop then to Fulton Hogan Hiways as a project engineer before being appointed Savusavu depot manager."

Mr Rogo, who is a civil engineer, worked for the Fiji Roads Authority for six years before joining Fulton Hogan Hiways' northern subcontractor, Fair Deal, as a maintenance supervisor. He is now employed by Fulton Hogan Hiways as its Natua depot manager.

Mr Rogo said they were very close and that ending up in the same company with the same kind of jobs was truly amazing.
