"Dan Burke is a shining example of all that is good in a publishers representative. He is extremely hard working, creative, client focused and consistently delivers excellent customer service to both his clients and his publishers and always does so with the highest levels of business and personal integrity. I have no hesitation in recommending Dan Burke completely and without reservation."
Pat Brennan, Vice President

Hearst Magazines
"I had the pleasure to work with Dan when he was publisher of Contract, a leading magazine serving the architectural interiors market, and I was Vice President with responsibilities over the Dallas Division and Building, Design and Real Estate Groups. Touring the top trade shows with him, I was always struck by how well all of Contract's clients responded to him. He maintained close relationships not only with our top clients, but with every client, and those relationships made a serious difference to our bottom line. I would recommend any publication looking for aggressive sales to get to know Dan Burke and use his services -- to enhance the magazine's image in the industry, create positive relationships, and of course build sales."

"Dan Burke is one of the hardest-working salespeople in the trade magazine business. When I place an order for advertising space with him, I know the minute I hang up the phone that there will be no problems. He's extremely service-oriented and takes excellent care of his clients. We especially enjoy him playing trumpet in a band that brings the house down at our annual party at Neocon in Chicago."
Greg Wittlinger, Senior Vice President of Marketing
The Mohawk Group
"I had the pleasure to work with Dan Burke as a colleague at Miller Freeman, Inc., one of the country's largest media and trade show companies, for five years. At the end of my tenure Dan was publisher of Contract and I was group publisher of the Design Group. I was always impressed with Dan's enthusiasm and his ability to take care of his clients, staff and product. As his manager I knew I could trust him to manage all aspects of the business, especially relationships with key clients, one of which turned into a lucrative custom publishing project. He is one of the friendliest, most sincere people in the business. I was proud to work with him and would recommend him to any publishing company seeking strong representation in any market."
Craig DiLouie, Principal
ZING Communications, Inc.
"Dan is an exceptional salesman, account manager and business person. I bought media products from him for almost 10 years. During the entire time, he delivered value for our investment and stayed in tune with our changing needs. For instance, he was proactive in creating packages that effectively blended print and online media.

I always felt he "had my back" if there were any issues, yet I think he fairly represented and protected the publishing company's interests at the same time. (As an aside, it was a pleasure to get to know Dan on a more personal level during some great dinners at the tradeshows; on one occasion, he introduced me to his friend, my only meeting with, a true Sommelier.)

I highly recommend Dan."
