ArkMalibu advised the Victory Community Bank Board. Greg Fischer, Director of Victory Community Bank and Executive Vice President of Fischer Homes, said “Ark Malibu was a valuable resource as my partner and I were considering exiting one of our businesses.  They led us to define our goals for the transaction and desired outcomes in a purposeful and strategic manner.   The ArkMalibu team bring a unique perspective considering a wide variety of strategies focused on their client.  They are not driven by a quick sale and opened my eyes to multiple possibilities.  I really appreciated ArkMalibu’s seemingly endless connections as we explored opportunities.  They helped ensure we were ready when the right opportunity crossed our path.”
