Bill Suitts of Boulder founded Colorado Mortgage Co. in 1958 and still serves as its president. It has provided financing for residential projects in the city and county for more than 5,000 single-family homes.

Bill was responsible for the creation of local landmark neighborhoods, including Boulder’s Martin Acres, Keewaydin Meadows and Frasier Meadows, and Centennial Valley and Continental View Estates in Louisville and Indian Peaks in Lafayette.

Very active in the community, Bill was a major contributor to both the University of Colorado and the University of Denver.

Bill says of his career, “Throughout my life, no amount of success in any business venture can compare to the true happiness and love that my wife of 57 years, our three children and seven grandchildren have bestowed upon me. In my business life the two accomplishments of which I am most proud are being able to provide so many families with truly affordable housing and knowing that my firm has made the initial financing to a great number of aspiring young builders.”
