Quicken Loans appoints new EVP of wholesale lending

Quicken Loans Mortgage Services (QLMS) has named Austin Niemiec executive vice president of wholesale lending.

Niemiec started his career with the company 10 years ago as a mortgage banker and then became senior director of mortgage banking four years later. Shortly thereafter, Quicken Loans promoted Niemiec as regional vice president, and after almost two years, the company appointed him as vice president and market developer of wholesale lending.

"QLMS couldn't be in better hands as it writes the next chapter in its story of innovation, client service and success," said Bob Walters, president and chief operating officer of Quicken Loans. "Austin lives by the motto 'Always grateful, never satisfied.' That combination of gratitude for past successes, along with a searing desire to consistently innovate and improve, is powerful and will serve QLMS well."

Niemiec succeeds David Schroeder.

"I'd like to thank Dave for his passionate and thoughtful leadership of QLMS," said Walters. "Dave is one of the most dedicated people I know. He truly lived and breathed QLMS and poured a tremendous amount of effort, passion and intellect into making it the industry leader it has become."
