Hank Steinbrecher – Business Development
National Soccer Hall of Famer Hank Steinbrecher has had a life-long relationship with sport and possesses the strategic thinking skills that have made U.S. Soccer an international force. As Secretary General of the United States Soccer Federation and CEO of US Soccer throughout the 1990’s, Hank took a lead role in securing sponsors to fund its grassroots outreach and financial growth. By the end of the decade, the U.S. Men had appeared in three World Cups, won a Gold Cup, and established a national fan base. For the U.S. Women, success meant two Women’s World Cup crowns and their first of four Olympic Gold Medals. Hank was also at the forefront of the Soccer Summit, bringing together leaders from across the American soccer landscape to chart the course of the sport into the next millennium. That course would eventually result in the U.S. hosting the 1994 World Cup and the birth of Major League Soccer, the highest level of professional club soccer ever seen in the United States.
After 10 years at the helm of US Soccer, Hank is now President of Touchline Consultants Inc. Touchline specializes in strategic planning for sports organizations, management of large international sporting events, and developing sales, marketing and distribution strategies for major product companies.
