Partnership with the City of Strongsville, JobsOhio, and Team NEO brings more opportunities to Northeast Ohio
Union Home Mortgage announced today an expansion of its corporate headquarters in Strongsville, Ohio adding a third building to its corporate campus and making way for the creation of 450 new jobs in a variety of career fields supporting the independent mortgage banking company. Union Home expects the construction of the new facility to be completed by summer 2021.
“This is a really exciting time for Union Home Mortgage,” said Bill Cosgrove, President & CEO. “This new building will support our fast-growing ecommerce business and create openings for Partners in technology, data analytics, and sales as well as general mortgage banking roles. For me personally, to be hiring and growing locally in a place I’ve always called home – it’s a remarkable feeling.”
Union Home Mortgage is a licensed independent mortgage banker in 44 states and the District of Columbia. The company has grown its loan production from just over $1.5 billion in 2015 to more than $6 billion today. The company calls its more than 1,300 employees ‘Partners’, to signify the deep cooperation and teamwork embedded in its culture.
“We’ve made a lot of investments in technology and training recently, but talent continues to be our most valuable asset and our biggest competitive advantage,” said Jim Ferriter, Senior Vice President of Retail Sales. “We’re constantly looking for talent and we’ve been fortunate to find so much of it here in our backyard. When you look at the quality and number of schools around us – we have 85 paid interns right now. We’re very proud of that.”
The new corporate facility will increase the size of its Strongsville campus to more than 120,000 square feet. The building will feature amenities including an onsite gym and cafeteria and will have dedicated space for corporate trainings and ongoing education for its Partners locally, as well as virtually across their national footprint. This new dedicated education center will provide extensive training and help further develop the career paths of its more than 1,300 Partners nationwide.
“Union Home Mortgage’s investment will revitalize a vacant facility and fill it with 450 new financial services jobs,” said J.P. Nauseef, JobsOhio president and CEO. “The facility will serve as a new headquarters in Strongsville that will more than double Union Home Mortgage’s employment, providing a strong economic boost as Ohio continues to grow its economy.”
“We are delighted that Union Home Mortgage calls Northeast Ohio home – tapping into our region’s robust professional services talent pipeline to fill 450 new jobs,” said Bill Koehler, CEO of Team NEO. “We look forward to working closely with the company and our partners to ensure its long term success here.”
