Digital Realty's David Schirmacher now SVP of Design and Contruction after 3 years of running operations

I had heard that Digital Realty's David Schirmacher had a new role as SVP of Design and Construction last week and was waiting for public disclosure. David has updated his LinkedIn profile.

Before David joined Digital we had many long conversations about the data center industry.  We now have much fewer, but our conversations had lasting value and it is a good move for David and Digital.  David used to run Design and Construction at Goldman Sachs so this is not a new role for him.

There are many ideas in my head of how Digital could be changing how it designs, constructs and operates its data centers, and I have a feeling it is going to be based on some of the ideas David and I used to talk about.
