UWM Appoints Andrew Hubacker Chief Financial Officer
Pontiac, February 6, 2023 – United Wholesale Mortgage (UWM), the #1 overall lender in America, has named Andrew Hubacker its new Chief Financial Officer.
Hubacker will assume the position immediately and will oversee all financial aspects of the company including accounting, internal and external reporting, financial compliance, tax, treasury and liquidity management, and budgeting and forecasting. Hubacker originally joined the company in October of 2020 as Chief Accounting Officer and took on the role of Interim Principal Financial Officer in July of 2022.
“Andrew has made such a positive impact at UWM since the day he started,” said Mat Ishbia, president and CEO of UWM. “His nearly three decades of experience and deep knowledge allowed him to expand our finance team’s capabilities and made him a key player in helping UWM go public back in 2021. He has been acting as the CFO since the passing of Tim Forrester, and has done a phenomenal job in all aspects. I know he’s capable of taking on this role and has been doing it at a high level already.”
Hubacker was originally recruited by the late Timothy Forrester, UWM’s previous CFO, to help take the company public via the largest SPAC in history at the time. Hubacker’s extensive background and expertise made him the perfect candidate for the role. In a condensed amount of time he helped implement new finance processes and programs to transition the company from private to publicly-held, shares of which trade on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).
More recently, Hubacker played a key role in helping UWM achieve its goal of becoming the number 1 overall lender in the nation by helping lead various initiatives to enhance the company’s liquidity and financial position. These initiatives have helped provide the company with the necessary liquidity to support its strategic objectives that ultimately helped UWM rise to the top.
“I’m humbled to be named UWM’s Chief Financial Officer,” said Hubacker. “From helping to take the company public through the largest SPAC in history, to becoming the #1 overall mortgage lender in the nation, my experiences at UWM have been nothing short of extraordinary. The positive mindset and service mentality every single team member and leader have here is truly unmatched. I’m eager to continue elevating and enhancing the role and capabilities of our finance team as a strategic business partner to the company.”
Prior to joining UWM, Hubacker spent 18 years at Deloitte & Touche, LLP, including over 12 years as an audit partner. He also spent time at AOL, LLC and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). He is a Certified Public Accountant in the state of Michigan and graduated from Michigan State University with a bachelor’s degree in accounting.
Hubacker resides in Bloomfield Township, Michigan with his wife and three children.
