Prior to joining InterAction, Burt worked in non-profit individual and trade associations focused on membership, revenue generation, education, research, and more. He has worked for the American Bar Association, Home Builders, and the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP), where he conceived, implemented, and built a new membership revenue stream and its business development department.

Burt holds the 2019 John C. Thiel Distinguished Service Award from Association Forum and was named a 2020 Men of Excellence Honoree by the historic Chicago Defender. He has a B.A. in Organizational Leadership from Roosevelt University with minors in Communications and Sociology. In his spare time, you will find him living his best life with family, friends, and becoming a grill master with his low and slow grilling method.
