MANAGING DIRECTOR

Bob Arabian is a seasoned financial and sales executive. Having run two companies specializing in consumer credit, Bob has a solid background in debt financing. He has worked on commercial credit deals and capital formation for small startup firms through his extensive contacts in the Silicon Valley VC and PE community. Over the past 15 years he has also served as a sales executive in several high tech and IT companies in the Valley.

Before joining Merit Harbor Capital, Bob helped grow his family chemical business and built the biggest model home loan brokerage in the United States. Both businesses continue to be active and thriving today. As a longtime member of the Silicon Valley community, Bob helped many colleagues raise capital and decided to formalize that work by becoming a FINRA registered broker. Since then, he has built a Bay Area investment banking practice that leverages his contacts in technology and finance to help companies raise or sell capital.

Bob graduated from UCLA and went on to attend Santa Clara’s top ranked Tech MBA program. He holds series 82 and 63 licenses and specializes in sell-side M&A, institutional and private debt and equity placements, and assisting select high growth companies in raising capital.

Bob spends his free time with his wife and two daughters and his large extended family in the Bay Area. He is active in local causes at the neighborhood and City level. Bob is an avid sports fan and enjoys playing basketball and soccer with his friends and colleagues.
