Passing of David Schirmacher

David SchirmacherIt is with profound sadness that I share the news of the passing of the President of 7×24 Exchange International, David Schirmacher on January 30th after a recent accident. We are deeply saddened by this tremendous loss. We extend our deepest sympathies to David’s wife Veronica, his brother Axel, his family and friends.

As a recognized and respected leader in the mission critical industry, David served as board member since 2007 and guided 7×24 Exchange International to achieve prominence as the leading knowledge exchange in the industry. During his time at Goldman Sachs he led engineering teams that designed and built data centers that were a model for all of Wall Street. As the Chief Strategy Officer at FieldView Solutions he led the development and implementation of innovative monitoring software utilized in the industry today. As a member of Digital Realty’s leadership team David managed global data center construction and management of global operations.

His wife Veronica was by his side when David passed peacefully. David and Veronica were best friends and spent all their leisure time together. They especially enjoyed vacationing on cruises and spending time together at 7×24 Exchange International conferences.

It was a great privilege to know him personally and to work alongside him as leaders of 7×24 Exchange International. David will be remembered by so many as a good friend, a valued colleague and a wonderful person. I will miss our many discussions on all kinds of topics, his wisdom, advice, humor, our lunches at Harold’s Deli, and most of all his friendship.

May God Bless His Soul!

Bob Cassiliano
Chairman & CEO
