Susan Moynihan-Manning

Director of Marketing, Sue Moynihan-Manning, is no stranger to the world of sports and recreation.  A Journalism major and soccer player, Sue graduated from the University of WI-Madison in 1990. 

In 2008, Sue accepted a position with the family business.  Sue’s passion for the business is palpable.  “I’m proud that we are a family-owned and operated business and have been since the 1970s.  I love we are a strong company that hasn’t tried to get too big too fast. We make strong, long-lasting products designed with safety in mind in our factory in Butler, WI.  I’m enjoying the challenges of a new career and love getting the word out about Keeper Goals.”

Prior to Keeper Goals, Sue followed the family’s passion and coached soccer. As head coach of the UW Milwaukee Women’s Soccer Team (1992-1996) Sue transformed the team into a winning program. She was later inducted into the UW-Milwaukee Athletics Hall of Fame for her efforts. In ’97 she accepted a position as Assistant Soccer Coach at Purdue University.  Purdue first competed in 1998.  The first few years were rocky, but by 2002 the team made the NCAA Tournament for the first time and made the NCAA tournament every year after that except 1 through 2007 when Moynihan left the program.  In 2003 they reached the Sweet 16 and in 2007 the team was ranked as high as #5 in the country and won the Big Ten Tournament. 

In 2009 She moved to Salt Lake City, UT and married the current University of Utah women’s soccer coach Rich Manning.

In Sue’s spare time she serves on the board of the Wisconsin Women’s Soccer Advisory Council, takes care of her dog Daisy, hikes, does yoga, decorates things, and tries not give her husband, Rich, too much advice on coaching.
