President & CEO
Since starting her business in 1990, Vicki Suiter has helped hundreds of contractors and designers build solid foundations for their businesses, run operations more efficiently, and achieve the kind of success they never dreamed possible. She — and the companies she works with — consistently create break- through results because Vicki helps her clients through instruction — not by direction. Instead of telling her clients what changes they need to make in their business — she leads them to understand the fundamentals that drive it. Her clients learn to see, and operate their businesses in a whole new way.
Vicki earned her undergraduate degree in business and finance from Dominican University, and held positions as a lending officer with a national bank, was controller for an international training company, and earned certifications as a Business Coach/Trainer and Master NLP Practitioner before opening her own business. She chose to focus on the contracting industry for a very practical reason: her (then) husband was a contractor, and she realized that there were a whole lot of businesses that could use her business advice.
She was right.
Over the years, Vicki has expanded the scope of her business and her services. When the doors opened, the company name was Suiter Financial Systems. In 2014 she changed the name to Suiter Business Builders to reflect the work she does today. Today, in addition to running a fully-booked consulting practice, Vicki has become an in-demand speaker at construction and design industry conferences across the US and Canada. Her presentations for ASID, IDS, NARI and NKBA are consistently ranked among their most popular. Vicki has also been at the top in association leadership: She served for over sixteen years on the executive team for North Bay NARI, and was named NARI National Chapter President of Year in 2011.
Vicki’s articles and opinions have been widely shared in print and across the web. She is also the author of book “The Profit Bleed” How managing margin can save your contracting business.

It’s so great having Vicki Suiter as a resource. She’s available and quick on her feet. When I speak to her about what we’re working on she understands because she’s run into it before. I know I can rely on her. And it’s not just me– she’s there for all of my staff as well. She’s on our team.
