A proven administrator with 20 years of experience, Mike Broeker is in his ninth year as Deputy Director of Athletics, and 12th overall, at Marquette University. In addition, he served as the department's acting director of athletics from July through December 2011.
Broeker has played an integral role in the department's growth over the last decade by helping foster a mission-driven culture while building an infrastructure to support student-athlete success in and out of competition. The department's number two athletic administrator, Broeker manages day-to-day operations with a directed focus on external operations and revenue generation, provides guidance and support to the administrative and coaching staffs, and sport oversight for the men's basketball program. Through his leadership, Marquette Athletics has experienced broad-based athletic and academic achievement, unprecedented exposure and interest, and increased revenues from corporate partnerships, licensing, merchandising, ticket sales and donations.
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 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, an alumna of Marquette, have three sons, Michael, Danny and Charlie.
