Bürgi started covering the media agency sector as reporter for Mediaweek, where he rose to news editor and then held the editor-in-chief role for the better part of a decade. He joined the agency world briefly as senior vp, director of global communications at Starcom MediaVest Group, returning to journalism as the director of editorial partnerships at Adweek and was most recently senior vp of content and news at DiGennaro Communications.
