Spotlight – Success Story
Rocket Mortgage (Quicken Loans), America’s largest mortgage lender and creator of the first fully digital mortgage experience, recently completed an expansion project in downtown Cleveland. The project adds 630 new jobs and $47.3 million in payroll to the area – on top of the company’s existing Northeast Ohio-based workforce of 700-plus.
Rocket Mortgage considered several cities before expanding in Cleveland. Mike Malloy, Chief Amazement Officer for Rocket Mortgage told Crain’s Cleveland Business “The core of … the growth of any city is good-paying jobs that allow its citizens the opportunity for success. And the city of Cleveland and the state of Ohio are very committed to that.”
The expansion is providing careers – primarily for mortgage bankers – representing tens of millions of dollars in payroll. Rocket Mortgage is also dedicated to facilitating training and upskilling for employees looking to further their careers.
