Quicken Loans Inc. and Sister Company Quizzle LLC, Ranked #1 in Detroit Free Press' 'Top Workplace in Michigan' list for the third consecutive year

- Title Source, Fathead and One Reverse Mortgage also Named as Top Workplaces -

DETROIT, Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Quicken Loans Inc. and its sister company Quizzle LLC, two Detroit-based companies committed to transforming downtown Detroit into a vibrant place to live, work and play, were ranked #1 in the Detroit Free Press 'Top Workplace in Michigan' list for the third consecutive year.

Quicken Loans is the nation's largest online home lender and fourth largest retail lender.  The company closed a record $30 billion in retail home loan volume across all 50 states in 2011 and is on track to shatter that record in 2012.  Quizzle is an innovative website that helps consumers gain a complete understanding of their home, money and credit situation - with a truly free credit report and score every six months.

"Being recognized as the #1 workplace in Michigan for the third year in a row is great, especially considering the award is based on team member feedback," said Quicken Loans CEO Bill Emerson. "Our company has seen rapid growth this year, and we are more committed than ever to providing a culture where innovation and communication are rewarded."

The companies' offices in downtown Detroit's central business district have cultures in which creativity and collaboration are encouraged and expected. The offices feature vibrant colors and open spaces, and many fun ways to engage team members including scooters, video games and ping pong tables.

"It's exciting to be recognized for what we do and how we do it," said Todd Albery, CEO of Quizzle. "We have a tremendous team at Quizzle. Our company has expanded dramatically this year and with our growth we hope to see more good things in the future - for ourselves, our sister companies and for the city of Detroit."

Title Source, the nation's largest independent provider of title insurance, property valuations and settlement services, and an affiliate of Quicken Loans, ranked third on the list.   Title Source in 2012 relocated its national headquarters and moved 1,200 team members to downtown Detroit's First National Building.

"We are thrilled to be recognized as a Detroit Free Press top workplace," said Jeff Eisenshtadt, President/CEO of Title Source. "We doubled our business over the last year and our team members have validated that the right mix of culture, environment and empowerment equal a winning formula for a Top Workplace."

Sister companies Fathead LLC, the industry leader of officially licensed sports and entertainment graphics; and One Reverse Mortgage LLC, the largest reverse-only mortgage lender in America and second largest retail provider of reverse mortgage home loans, were also named top workplaces by the Detroit Free Press.

The Top Workplaces are based solely on employee feedback.  The survey is conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, a leading research firm on organizational health and employee engagement.  This year 237 companies and organizations that employ 159,134 people in Michigan competed in the Top Workplace list.

Workplace Dynamics partnered with the Detroit Free Press to conduct extensive surveys of team members on topics ranging from workplace diversity to respect and compensation. The surveys were used to select the companies appearing on the "Top Workplace" list.
