BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Invaluable, the world’s largest online live auction marketplace, today announced the appointment of Bill Burke as Chief Financial Officer. Burke brings to Invaluable more than 25 years of extensive experience working with high-growth, technology-based companies, including both private and publicly-held corporations.

At Invaluable, Burke will be responsible for overseeing the finance team, including managing all aspects of financial planning and analysis, accounting, internal audit and treasury functions. He will be reporting directly to Rob Weisberg, Invaluable’s Chief Executive Officer.

“Bill brings extensive financial expertise to Invaluable, and I’m pleased to welcome him to Invaluable’s executive team,” said Rob Weisberg, Invaluable CEO. “Bill has enjoyed a successful career working with technology companies going through periods of rapid development, such as Invaluable, and brings with him a great wealth of experience, including several successful public offerings. He will be a tremendous asset to the Invaluable team as we continue to rapidly scale the live auction industry.”

Most recently, Burke served as Chief Financial Officer at Ensyn Corporation, following more than five years as Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer at SiGe Semiconductor, where he managed the filing for the company’s initial public offering (IPO) prior to their acquisition by Skyworks Solutions in June 2011. Before SiGe Semiconductor, Burke held the role of Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer at Riverdeep Interactive, where he led the company’s $140 million IPO in March 2000, along with their acquisition of The Learning Company in 2001. Prior to that, Burke held the role of Vice President of Finance at Computron Software, following several positions with public accounting firm Andersen LLP, where he began his finance career.

“I’m extremely excited to join the team at Invaluable,” said Burke. “I’ve been very impressed by how the company has attracted world-class auction house partners, global strategic partners such as eBay, leading e-commerce investors and a passionate and talented group of employees, and I look forward to helping the company continue its high rate of growth and extend its market leadership position over the coming years.”

Burke received his certified public accountant (CPA) license in Massachusetts and holds a bachelor’s degree of business administration in accounting from Northeastern University.
