Andrew Hubacker has been named chief financial officer at United Wholesale Mortgage (UWM).
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, UWM says in a release. 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.
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.
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, and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
