Archie Willis spent over 15 years working in the areas of real estate development and public finance. During this time, he realized the potential impact if these areas of expertise were combined to work in urban communities that suffered from historical disinvestment. As a result, Archie Willis founded Community Capital in 1999 to provide affordable housing and community development consulting services. In 2002, the firm expanded its services to include municipal financial advisory services; and in 2003, Pamela Clary joined the firm to lead the firm’s public finance practice. In 2007, the firm rebranded its municipal finance services as ComCap Advisors, a division of Community Capital. ComCap Advisors was formed as an independent financial advisory practice that serves public sector clients. In 2016, the parent company, Community Capital, was rebranded as ComCap Partners.
