In 2002, Hsieh founded, the first online lender to offer a full spectrum of home loan products in all 50 states featuring live interest rate quotes and loan offerings tailored to individual borrower needs and credit profiles. Hsieh continued to lead the business for three years after merging IAC/Interactive subsidiary Lending Tree in 2004.

Hsieh launched loanDepot in 2010 with a commitment to responsible lending and customer-first service. The company has nearly doubled in market share every year since 2012, and today employs approximately 4,500 people that includes 1,500+ licensed loan officers.

Always looking to the future, today Hsieh is leading loanDepot LLC into nonmortgage consumer lending to diversify the company's origination portfolio so it remains sustainable in all market conditions and is a national nonbank lender of choice.
