In memoriam

We were greatly saddened by the September 22 passing of David Harvey, publisher of sister magazine Automation World.

Dave began his career in 1980 as an advertising salesperson for Technical Publishing, which published Control Engineering magazine. Through various corporate acquisitions, Dave was promoted to publisher of Control Engineering, serving in that role for nearly a decade.

But Dave had a bigger dream—to launch a publication that would promote automation as the key ingredient in helping manufacturers achieve production and business success. So in 2003, Dave and his team of former colleagues and new business partners premiered the first issue of Automation World.

From the beginning, Dave’s knowledge about and love for the automation industry were obvious. When cancer struck, Dave’s enthusiasm, courage, and strength carried him through five long years of treatment.

Those of us who have had the privilege to know and work with Dave—some of us for decades—will remember him as larger than life. He was a man of vision and integrity, a gentleman in business, and a gentle man to all who met him. He will be missed.
