Ruoff Mortgage to expand growing Fort Wayne presence at Electric Works

Ruoff Mortgage, the largest purchase lender in the Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Kentucky combined markets, has signed a letter of intent to locate a growing portion of its Fort Wayne-based headquarters team at Electric Works.

The company is in the process of determining which areas of its Fort Wayne-based operations will expand to the project’s West Campus when it opens in 2022.

“While we are still formalizing the strategy around how that space will be utilized, we felt it important to make an investment in the community with this project, which has garnered incredible support and excitement,” said Mark Music, President and CEO of Ruoff Mortgage.

“Ruoff Mortgage is a well-known brand and an incredible home-grown success story, and we’re excited to help Mark Music and Ruoff leadership team continue their growth and success here in Fort Wayne,” said Jeff Kingsbury of RTM Ventures, the development team behind Electric Works. “Like many growing companies, they recognize the challenges in attracting, retaining and growing a talented workforce here – and like Do it Best and our other tenants, they also recognize the unique and critical advantages Electric Works offers them in meeting that challenge directly.”

Founded in 1984, Ruoff Mortgage is the largest purchase lender in the Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Kentucky combined markets and one of the fastest-growing companies in the country. Today, the company has more than 850 employees at its Fort Wayne headquarters and across nearly 70 locations in Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky, and Florida. For more information, visit
