Quicken Loans is expanding its offices to Ontario, Canada, opening in Windsor in 2019.
Close to the company’s Detroit headquarters, the office will house over 100 technology workers, chiefly in engineering and programming, in the downtown historic Old Fish Market Building, which is undergoing renovation.
“We learned a lot more about Ontario’s deep technology talent pool over the past couple of years as we explored pitching the international border of Windsor/Detroit to various companies,” says Jay Farner, CEO of Quicken Loans. “As Quicken Loans continues to grow and set the standard for innovation, we remain focused on recruiting additional technology talent to our brainforce. With our headquarters located in downtown Detroit, we have a tremendous opportunity to tap into the rich technology pipeline both stateside and in Canada.”
“We are excited that Quicken Loans and its Family of Companies have made the decision to open an office in downtown Windsor,” says Mayor Drew Dilkens. “The relationship we developed recently with them as we jointly pursued various technology companies to our international border cities helped us share the strong value proposition of Windsor. Quicken Loans is an amazing company with a great work culture. We look forward to working closely with them in the months and years ahead as they grow their presence in our city.”
Quicken is not an active lender in Canada, but has not ruled it out yet, according to a company release. The national lender is a Rock Holdings Inc. subsidiary, which is additionally parent to OpenHouse Realty, based in Toronto.
Bedrock, also owned by Rock Holdings, facilitated the finding of the new office, along with Mark Lalovich and Russel Lalovich of RE/MAX Preferred Realty in Windsor.
