Our dear friend and colleague Dominik (just turned 27) died on the 19th of January during a tragic car accident on his way to the airport, ready to come back to Barcelona and start a new chapter of his life with his girlfriend Anna - 7 months pregnant with his unborn daughter.
Both Dominik and Anna were in the car during the horrible accident and thankfully, Anna and the unborn daughter miraculously survived the crash with minor injuries.
With this campaign we are honoring Dominik’s legacy and setting up a fund for his unborn daughter so that she is able to enjoy an international education and travel the world - as Dominik would have done for her if he were still alive.
We want his daughter to know what an amazing father she had. We want to share with everyone what a great person he was, his positivity, energy for life, humble personality and just energy that electrified everyone around him.
What made Dominik - or as his fellow Gartner colleagues used to call him - Dom or Mr. Schwarzenegger - the incredible force of nature that touched so many lives?

He always knew if something was up, there was no need to say anything. He always cheered everyone up, his positivity was contagious. But more than that, his heart was shining through and every day was a better day because of him in the office. Always ready to help. He’s inspiring me to come to work every day and be available for my colleagues and make everyone’s day a bit better. Thank you Dom, we love you.
Lisa Jahndorf - German colleague, friend & partner in crime
Dominik, I miss you! We have known each other less than a year but you gave me the feeling I knew you my whole life. You are such an inspiration. Your positive mindset & energy, your kindness, your laughter, your big heart – every time I saw you, you made me and everyone around you smile. You have not only been a colleague, but my friend and partner in crime. You taught me so much on appreciating life and living it to the fullest of happiness. Thank you for being part of my life. Myself and everyone will make sure your daughter knows what an amazing dad she had. I know you are still somehow with us! We love and miss you my friend!
Roxane Hock - French colleague, fellow academy buddy & friend
Dominik, what a great mind a heart! I still remember the 6-weeks academy with you, when you showed us great reggaeton singing skills because we locked you outside of the room so you would be 1mn late. We didn’t even know each other yet, and you were the first one to help me out with role plays after work hours! Du hast immer mich gezwungen Deutsch mit dir zu sprechen ! And also tried so many times to make me go with you to the gym (which wasn’t that successful). Our last “Christmas dinner” together with the girls, felt like being in this bubble and family. Every day in the office, you were spreading such a positive vibe and fighting spirit, the one of us who had conducted 40+ sales cycles in a couple of months! Inspiring! And last but not least, your communicative (and unstoppable) laugh… unforgettable. You will be missed.
