Mission Statement

We Create Extraordinary Experiences. All The Time. For Everyone.


Quicken Loans Arena is operated by a group led by Cavaliers majority owner Dan Gilbert, the chairman and founder of Quicken Loans, Inc., the nation’s largest online home mortgage lender. Since 2005, Gilbert has led the ownership group’s $40+ million investment in renovations and upgrades at Quicken Loans Arena featuring new seats, state-of-the-art scoreboards, new lighting technology, enhanced sound system, remodeled team locker room and much more.

On October 5, 2010, a redesigned and expanded multi-million dollar two-story Cavaliers Team Shop opened inside The Q and is now one of the largest and most contemporary in the NBA. These investments reflect Gilbert’s commitment to operating the Cavaliers, Monsters and Quicken Loans Arena in a fan-centric way that is second to none!
