Every sport above national average
A proven administrator with 16 years of experience in external relations, revenue generation, sport administration, finance, staff management and leadership, Mike Broeker is in his fifth year as Deputy Director of Athletics, and ninth overall, at Marquette University. In addition, Broeker served as the university's acting director of athletics for six months during the summer and fall of 2011.
As deputy director, Broeker oversees daily management of intercollegiate athletics with a specific focus on external and revenue generating areas: communications, marketing, corporate partnerships, licensing and merchandising, special events and ticket sales. Externally efforts have been reimagined during Broeker's tenure leading to unprecedented exposure and growth. The department is currently in the midst of its most comprehensive local television agreement, experiencing record attendance and revenue generation, and digitally delivering content daily to its large and growing fan base.
Additionally, Broeker provides leadership to the department's coaching staffs and student athletes, serving as sport administrator for the nationally ranked men's basketball program and newly formed men's lacrosse program. Broeker was central in the department's last four head coaching searches which yielded Brent "Buzz" Williams (men's basketball), Michael "Bond" Shymansky (volleyball), Joe Amplo (men's lacrosse) and Meredith Simon Black (women's lacrosse).
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 his bachelor's degree from Siena College in 1997, and will earn a master's degree in leadership studies from Marquette in 2012.
Born January 12, 1974, Broeker and his wife, Anne, have three sons, Michael, 6, Danny, 4 and Charlie, 2.
