Director Corporate Communications
John Burger has more than 20 years of experience in managing teams of professionals, projects, communication and change in international enterprises. After a study in chemistry in Amsterdam, with research in brain and behaviour sciences and didactics as subsidiary subjects, he did a few years of scientific research at the University of Edinburgh.
In previous years he worked for ABN AMRO, Akzo Nobel and Elsevier Science Publishers. He feels that the combination of scientific rationality and intuitive reasoning helps him to apply a “whole-brain” approach to communication issues.
John has been working as director corporate communication at Ziggo in Utrecht since the launch of the new brand in 2008, building on the twin pillars of reputation management and employee engagement. In March 2012 Ziggo became listed on the NYSE in Amsterdam after a successful IPO.
