Rainer Burkhardt is managing director of C3 Creative Code and Content GmbH in Berlin. He runs the company with his partners Lukas Kircher and Gregor Vogelsang. Rainer was in charge of DDB in Berlin when he met Lukas on a VW assignment in 2003. With a handful of potential clients on his list, his idea was to create C3 (formerly KircherBurkhardt) and build it into a custom publishing house like no other. His sales skills, fascination for technology and sure eye for trends are a driving force in the company. Today C3 is Germany’s leading content marketing agency with offices in Berlin, Munich, Hamburg, Stuttgart, Frankfurt, Zurich and London. With a total turnover of about €60 million and 400 employees, C3 is one of the biggest digital agencies in the DACH region and the only agency that focuses on content.
