He co-founded and is the president and CEO of Burke, Lawton, Brewer & Burke, an investment management firm in the Philadelphia area.

Elizabeth Burke also graduated from K-State in 1955. She worked at Burke, Lawton, Brewer & Burke, and she volunteers with a variety of community organizations and foundations focusing on education and the environment.
