Bill Burger

Bill Burger is vice president of marketing at Copyright Clearance Center, the world’s leading provider of content licensing solutions for corporations and academic institutions. Bill joined the senior management team at CCC in 2005 and leads the company’s product marketing and marketing communications groups.

Bill’s first career was journalism. He spent 14 years as an editor, writer and foreign correspondent at Newsweek, where he focused on business, economics and international affairs while working in New York, London and Tokyo. As the magazine’s European economics editor in the early ‘90s, he became interested in the convergence of information and technology and the emergence of new economic models and distribution channels for content. Following that interest, in 1995 he began his second career, in the information industry, first at AT&T and then as vice president of content and media services at Infonautics, the pioneering company that introduced the eLibrary research service into the K-12 and consumer markets.

Over the years Bill has helped several companies launch new services for the consumer and business markets, including Rogers Medical Intelligence Solutions, where he served at Senior Vice President of New Ventures from 2002 to 2004 and iCopyright, where he was Vice President of Content Services from 2000 to 2001.

Bill holds a BA in Political Science from Stanford University and has served on the board of directors of the Stanford Alumni Association. He lives in Andover, Massachusetts, with his wife, Susan Greenberg, and their three children.
