A proven administrator with 18 years of experience, Mike Broeker is in his sixth year as Deputy Director of Athletics, and 10th overall, at Marquette University.
Broeker has played an integral role over the last decade fostering a mission-driven culture within athletics while helping build an infrastructure that supports success-driven student athletes.
Through his role, Broeker manages the day-to-day operations of the department with a specific focus on its external and revenue generating units, provides leadership to the administrative and coaching staffs, and sport oversight for the men's basketball program. Those efforts have yielded broad-based athletic and academic achievement, unprecedented exposure and interest, and increased revenues.
Broeker joined the Marquette Athletics staff in November 2003 as Assistant Athletic Director for Media Relations, after nearly four years as a member of the basketball communications group at the National Basketball Association (NBA). While at the NBA, he worked to generate awareness and publicity for the league, its executive staff, events and initiatives and served as the primary contact for local and national electronic media outlets.
Prior to working with the NBA, Broeker spent two years working in the communications group for the Women's Tennis Association (WTA). He served as a primary on-site media contact for events including Wimbledon, the Australian Open, the U.S. Open, and the French Open.
A former student-athlete at Siena College, Broeker was a two-year letterman as a pitcher for the baseball program. He got his start in college athletics as a Marketing/Sports Information Assistant at his alma mater.
Broeker earned a bachelor's degree in English from Siena in 1997, and master's degree in leadership studies from Marquette in 2012.
He and his wife, Anne, have three sons, Michael (7), Danny (5) and Charlie (3).
