United Wholesale Mortgage to Move Headquarters to Pontiac

TROY, Mich., June 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — United Wholesale Mortgage (UWM), the No. 1 wholesale lender and the fastest-growing independent mortgage lender in the country, announced today at its company rally that it will move its corporate headquarters to Pontiac in the summer of 2018.

“This is a monumental moment for us, as our people are what make us a great company and this move is designed with them in mind,” said Mat Ishbia, President/ CEO, UWM. “We want to continue to be a magnet for top talent in the area, and take being a national best place to work to a new level.” 

The new headquarters will provide a number of physical amenities for the new UWM campus, including:

  • 600,000-square-foot building (current headquarters is 275,000 square feet)
  • Nearly 60 acres of campus
  • Primary Care doctor’s office
  • Starbucks with indoor/outdoor cafe, wired with Wi-Fi

“The new headquarters will not only create a more dynamic and collaborative work environment to maximize our team members’ performance – all under one roof and one campus – it will also offer a wider assortment of perks and intensify the sense of culture and work-life balance that we pride ourselves on,” Ishbia said.

The move supports UWM’s commitment to continued growth as one of the largest employers in the Metro Detroit region. Since 2010, the company’s team member count has increased five times, going from 400 to 2,100.

With 60 percent of UWM’s workforce comprised of millennials, the new headquarters will especially appeal to a wide range of young professionals. All team members will continue to work out of a single location. 

The UWM brand continues to separate itself from its competitors, as it has tripled in size since 2014. In 2016, UWM set a company record with $23 billion in loan volume, and is on pace to surpass $30 billion in 2017.

The transaction and expected renovation cost of the new campus is nearly $80 million.
