Making a commitment to the city of Cleveland and its amazing sports fans, Dan Gilbert purchased the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2005 and promised to keep the team “right where it belongs, in downtown Cleveland.” And just seven years later, Gilbert thought he’d kick the city’s spirit of winning up a notch. With the addition of Horseshoe Casino Cleveland to our ever-growing Family of Companies, the downtown area is truly blossoming into a cultural hotspot.
Quicken Loans shares the same strong values and work ethic as the people of northeast Ohio. Our team members enjoy working at our company because we’ve created a culture in which people are encouraged to take initiative and rewarded for their accomplishments.” – Dan Gilbert, Founder and Chairman of Quicken Loans.
Capitalizing on the limitless potential for synergy between Quicken Loans, the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Quicken Loans Arena, we packed up the moving truck in 2006, and Quicken Loans opened our first out-of-state Web Center with 25 team members.
Today, nearly 400 team members occupy 45,000 square feet of space in the MK-Ferguson Building, a former U.S. Post Office. Designed to encourage creativity, our culture is reflected in the bright colors and latest technology tools implemented throughout. Mere steps from Quicken Loans Arena, the Hard Rock Café, and Progressive Field, Quicken Loans is proud to be a part of a dynamic, vibrant city core.
