Founder & CEO, Susan Smith
After spending 15 years successfully coaching, facilitating and leading soccer leagues, tournaments and travel teams, Susan Smith was approached to manage tournaments for other organizations in the Hampton Roads, VA area. Finding high levels of success in raising funds, managing tournaments and doubling, sometimes tripling revenues for directors and owners, Susan set out to start her own business with the full support of the community, her husband and family in 1995.
Pioneering the housing opportunity for local travel teams and tournaments was just the beginning of Susan’s career in the Sports Management industry. Now, a highly sought after speaker, teacher and conference facilitator, Susan lends her 25+ years’ experience in many facets of the business.
The main purpose of Showcase Management is to assist those involved in sports, tournaments and teams and support them in their efforts to provide quality experiences for the children who are involved. She works tirelessly to create partnerships and fully support all she comes in contact with.
A mother of former child athletes, Susan understands what it takes to to raise young athletes and support their travel and practice schedules. Working with Showcase Management means you have someone in your corner, as a parent, a coach, a hotel or a tournament director.
