Matt Hangen,

Matt Hangen is the President and CEO of Water4. Mr. Hangen has a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Biblical Theology and Missiology, five years of experience as a youth minister, was a full-time missionary in Togo, West Africa for five years, and has been with Water4 since 2011, taking on his current leadership role in 2016. While serving as missionaries in West Africa, Matt and his wife Grace linked up with Water4 after searching for a better way to do manual well drilling. Water4 shared their desire to put financially and technologically sustainable solutions in the hands of local, missional businesses. In 2011 when ongoing medical treatments required the Hangens’ relocation to the U.S., Water4 was happy to gain someone with the field experience to travel and train up-and-coming drill teams into sustainable businesses throughout the world. Matt and his wife Grace have two daughters and live in Guthrie, Oklahoma and enjoy all things outdoors.
