Creating our legacy while continuing yours

Let’s chat

Who we are

We are Liz and Justus Zimmerman. We moved to South Bend, IN in 2020 and we immediately fell in love with this vibrant, active, cultured town. We knew we wanted to plant deep roots, and that is exactly what we have done. Today, we both serve on a number of non-profit boards, are active members in our children’s school communities, and volunteer with various organizations.

We are looking for the perfect opportunity to advance our investment in this city. South Bend is full of legacy-worthy businesses that have been carefully built from the ground up and provide vital services to our community. We are committed to finding the perfect fit so we can not only carry on your legacy, but build our own, as well.

Liz Zimmerman brings a diverse background to the world of business. With a BA in Theatre from the University of Maryland, Liz has learned and flourished in many roles and industries, including wealth management administration, event planning and marketing, education, and her forever love: theatre.

Today, Liz puts all these experiences to active use in the realm of Acquisition Entrepreneurship. Passionate about uncovering potential and driving growth, Liz is actively seeking opportunities to lead businesses into their next chapter of success.
