Sergey Mirochnik, Initiator, Co-owner and Managing Director of DARZ GmbH
Sergey Mirochnik, born in St. Petersburg, Russia in 1957, came to Darmstadt in 2008. As an operator of a company for traffic safety in St. Petersburg, he had been making frequent visits to the southern Hessian city. The entrepreneur studied polar geology and worked for 20 years as deputy director of an institute. Due the investment halt in geological research during the time of perestroika, he professionally reinvented himself, taking part in a joint venture with Utsch AG, a manufacturer of car signs. This task repeatedly led Sergey Mirochnik to Darmstadt. While there, he discovered one day the former vault building of the Hesse Central Bank on Julius Reiber Straße.
The architecturally outstanding, quadruple-awarded building immediately aroused his interest. In 2009, he finally moved to Darmstadt and bought the building – with the aim of making a special data center from it. Sergey Mirochnik is a visionary. These visions came in handy when it took courage to venture into this ambitious project from outside the industry. He won over prestigious partners for his data center, built up a strong team of motivated employees and led the project to success. Today, DARZ is a digital evolution provider that functions as a full IT service provider with a sustainable, efficient data center housing state-of-the-art technology, a strong team and the highest security standards.
