Meet the BNI Mid America Executive Director Management TEAM
Victor Muzquiz, Executive Director
Victor Muzquiz joined the director team on January 1st, 2010. Victor is a native of Mexico, but has lived here for more than half his life, so he considers the U.S. his home. Victor joined BNI as a remodeling contractor in St. Louis. Prior to opening Honey Do Home Repair and Remodel, Victor was a foreign language teacher for over ten years. Victor earned his Masters in Teaching at the School for International Training in Brattleboro, VT where he earned a Masters Degree in Bilingual/Multicultural Education. Victor has always considered himself first and foremost a teacher, and education and training have always been top priorities in his professional life.
One of the primary reasons that Victor joined BNI is that BNI spends thousands of hours educating and training its members about networking skills and solid referral marketing practices. In addition, he appreciates the incredible opportunity BNI offers to learn about a wide variety of businesses and best practices as chapter members share their extensive knowledge of their professions. Victor is responsible for the management and the development of BNI chapters in Southern Illinois and the St. Louis Metropolitan Area, and he and his wife, Virginia, both former members became franchise owner partners in 2012 for the Southern Illinois/St. Louis Metropolitan regions. His passion is sharing with others the opportunities for professional growth and increased revenue that come with membership in BNI.
