Burger Leaving SureWest

SureWest Wireless senior vice president and chief operating officer Robert M. Burger has resigned from SureWest Communications, the company said Friday.

Burger joined the company in 1998 to launch its wireless business.

SureWest also updated its search for a president and CEO.

“Our search committee has worked diligently to identify the best person to lead the company, and we have met with many outstanding candidates,” chairman Kirk Doyle said in a prepared statement.

“As we move deeper in the fiscal year, we believe we may not complete the process until sometime in the next quarter,” he added. “Fortunately, Brian Strom, our current CEO, has agreed to remain in his position to assure a smooth transition.”
