Burke began his career working on Wall Street. He initially trained at Wasserstein Perella & Co., where he worked directly for famed M&A banker Bruce Wasserstein. Burke then joined Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette (DLJ) as an early member of the firm’s Exclusive Sales Group, which became one of the most successful middle market sell-side advisory practices on Wall Street. Following the acquisition of DLJ by Credit Suisse, Burke joined UBS as an Executive Director in the mergers and acquisitions group.
