using Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles;
using Microsoft.SharePoint;
namespace CreateSubtype
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            using (SPSite site = new SPSite("http://<servername>"))
                SPServiceContext context = SPServiceContext.GetContext(site);
                ProfileSubtypeManager psm = ProfileSubtypeManager.Get(context);
                // create a user profile subtype
                psm.CreateSubtype("Consultant", "Consultant Subtype", ProfileType.User);
                // create an organization profile subtype
                psm.CreateSubtype("Vendor", "Vendor Subtype", ProfileType.Organization);
