Further, Schutter currently holds a number of other roles, such as his position on the Technical Education Advisory Board at CNet Training and his place on the Board of Infrastructure Masons.

Switch both builds and operates data centre campuses across the US. The firm raised $531mn after going public last year, becoming one of the most significant IPOs across the industry for 2017.

To date, Switch has developed more than 500 issued and pending patent claims across the data centre industry, helping to lead innovation across the sector.
