Client Testimonials

Owner/President

International Cell Phone Distributor

"I never needed a CFO. Never saw the value. When I went to the bank for a loan, they saw things differently. I ended up hiring Sutker Advisors to put together a financial plan so I could get a line of credit for my growing business and they never left. They continue to be a valuable and affordable cost of my business."

President

Online Wholesaler

"I’ll never forget the first time I met Sutker. At this meeting, I deeply questioned the viability of our business model. Sutker said let’s prove or disprove that theory. Then, they took my team and me through an exhaustive exercise where we scrutinized every aspect of our business. The net result was a leaner, more focused business model with a newly-created cohesive management team to implement our profit initiatives. We have now attained a level of profitability and success unfathomable just a short time ago."

Owner/President

Construction-related Firm

“I made a complicated transaction that my bank couldn’t understand. After working with two consulting firms that did nothing, I found Sutker who “put their heads down” and quickly dissected the transaction and presented it to my bank. I was so impressed with Sutker that I hired them as my interim CFO as I rapidly grew from a small, local firm to a national, vertically-integrated company. When I reached the level that required a full-time CFO, Sutker was integral in finding me a highly-skilled financial person whose personality melded well with my organization. Sutker is now a trusted advisor to me and my company.”

“Sutker Advisors were able to quickly assess my business issues, helped me make some tough and sensitive organizational decisions, as well as developed analysis that helped my team and me clearly evaluate the profitability of our various customers and services.”

Owner/President

Snow Plow Contractor/Manufacturer

“We were outgrowing our lender. We definitely had a story to tell and we weren’t sure out of the myriad banks who fit us best. We picked Sutker Advisors to help us because of their vast knowledge of the lending community and general business expertise. Sutker presented our story in “banking language” to a handful of excellent lenders and, after we received proposal letters from all of them, Sutker Advisors diligently negotiated a bank deal on our behalf. Sutker remains with our company as its business advisor.”

President

Designer/Distributor of Branded Women’s Jeans

“I felt I wasn’t getting enough out of my controller and I was paying him a six-figure salary. I now get high-level financial expertise and business advice from Sutker Advisors at half the cost. I was so enthused by the success of outsourcing my CFO/Controller duties, I engaged Sutker Advisors to take on the AP/AR function. I again was pleased to receive high-quality service at half the cost of this position.”

President

Distributor of Home Decor Products

“My controller left with not much notice and I was in the middle of my slow season. Sutker Advisors stepped right in — managed my cash flow, instilled accounting processes, and helped me improve my company’s profitability…..and remain my outside CFO and advisor to this day."

Chief Financial Officer

International manufacturer of floor matting solutions

“In our relationship with Sutker Advisors, we found that Sutker has a broad range of experience in high level financial management areas due to their relationships with their various clients and the individual needs these clients have had. Several of the challenges presented to our company this past year, were areas for which we have knowledge, but little experience. We relied on the experience of Sutker to assist us in addressing these areas. One example would be outlining a series of reports to be presented to the loan committee of our bank to negotiate the terms of our loan agreement. Sutker accompanied us to meet with the loan committee and were key in negotiating modifications to the proposed financial covenants that were in the best interest of our Company.”

Chief Executive Officer

Distributor of Lawn and Garden Products

"When our bank called our loan we called in Sutker to help. In a classic example of a Harvard textbook turnaround they completely transformed our company into a viable profitable company again and convinced the bank to give us a new loan. Because of Sutker our company ended up more profitable than ever."
