DETROIT, April 24, 2017 – Detroit-based Quicken Loans, the nation’s largest online lender and leading FinTech organization, today announced the hiring of a new Chief Marketing Officer (CMO), native Detroiter Casey Hurbis. Hurbis will lead Quicken Loans’ consumer-facing marketing team and will be responsible for all online and traditional marketing initiatives, as well as managing the nation’s most trusted and recognized home lending brand.

Hurbis led major initiatives including the creation of two Super Bowl commercials, large-scale brand campaigns, social media promotions and co-branded partnerships.
“I was born and raised in the Detroit area and throughout my career I have never had a chance to work in the city. I am thrilled to not only be working in the heart of city, but for a company as distinctly Detroit as Quicken Loans,” Hurbis said. “Quicken Loans has a fantastic brand and a driven marketing team ready to take the company to new heights. I am more than excited to forge new paths in how we tell our story and communicate with our clients and future homebuyers from coast to coast. We are going to push the limits when it comes to creative and innovative marketing campaigns that integrate our digital and traditional strategies.”
