CHAIRMAN / FOUNDER
Daniel "Dan" Gilbert (born January 17, 1962) is the Chairman and Founder of Quicken Loans Inc. and Rock Financial, as well as the majority owner of the National Basketball Association's Cleveland Cavaliers and American Hockey League's Lake Erie Monsters.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dan_Gilbert_%28businessman%29#cite_note-0

HISTORY:

In December 1998, Intuit Inc. (makers of TurboTax and Quicken) purchased Rock Financial. The national web operation was renamed "Quicken Loans" and grew substantially as the leading provider of direct-to-consumer home loans on the Internet, offering mortgages in all 50 states. Gilbert remained at the company as its CEO. In July 2002, just 30 months from the sale of Rock Financial, Gilbert led a small group of private investors and purchased the Quicken Loans subsidiary back from Intuit. He continues to serve as the chairman of Quicken Loans Inc., which now consists of Quicken Loans, Rock Financial, One Reverse Mortgage and national title insurance and escrow provider, Title Source.

On November 12, 2007, Quicken Loans founder Dan Gilbert announced a development agreement with the city to move the company headquarters to downtown Detroit, consolidating suburban offices.[5] The construction sites reserved for development by the agreement included the location of the former Statler on Grand Circus Park and the former Hudson's location.[6]


However, on July 13, 2009, Quicken announced that it would lease four floors of the Compuware building at Campus Martius Park in Detroit, and hopes to have a building of their own built by 2013 in Downtown Detroit.
