Our story. It starts with you.

The first thing you should know about us is that we want to know you.  Listening to you, learning about you, and building relationships has been at the core of who we are and how we approach banking since 1873. 

Horizon has always been about people first. And, our vision for the future is to provide you with technology that is designed to serve you, not avoid you.  We provide online conveniences that support innovative solutions for your personal, commercial and mortgage banking needs, as well as wealth and investment services.

Our community impact and support.

Horizon Bank is an excellent example of our community working together to help those in greatest need during this crisis. This donation will help us better assist families during this difficult time.

Brightpoint President & CEO

Helping our Communities

From company-wide fundraisers to grassroots activities, we see that time and money as something far greater than donations. We view them as an investment in the communities we serve.

Careers at Horizon

One of the most basic foundations of Horizon is listening, and that extends to each other. It’s this kind of respect that makes Horizon a great place to build a rewarding, fulfilling career with an opportunity for growth.

Diversity and Inclusion

It's more than a state of being. It's an action we intentionally take in everything we do. Whether you’re applying for a job or opening an account, we embrace, encourage and celebrate the differences that make up our community.

Experienced Leadership.

Our leadership team has more than 100 years of combined experience at Horizon.
It’s that kind of stability at the helm that allows us to continually evaluate the best new courses of action without losing sight of who we truly are.
