David Quade Takes on Expanded Role at Horizon Bank


Michigan City, Indiana – Horizon Bank announces the promotion of David Quade to the position of Regional Market President for Michigan & North Central Indiana. The move was part of an established succession plan following the appointment of Dennis Kuhn, who was previously in this role, to Executive Vice President & Chief Commercial Banking Officer.


Quade assumed his expanded role this month after joining Horizon Bank in October 2016 as the Market President for Grand Rapids, where the bank opened its first full-service office in May 2017. In this expanded position, Quade will continue to oversee the Grand Rapids market directly, while also providing strategic and management oversight of the Bank’s additional Michigan and North Central Indiana markets.


Currently, Horizon Bank also has Michigan locations in East Lansing, Okemos, St. Joseph, Three Rivers, Schoolcraft, Union, Portage and Benton Harbor. In addition, Horizon completed the acquisition of Wolverine Bancorp on October 17, 2017 adding the Midland, Frankenmuth, and Troy markets in Michigan. The North Central Indiana offices include South Bend and Elkhart.


Quade commented, “We have built a solid presence in Michigan and our plans are to continue to grow across the southern half of the State and in northern Indiana.  We look forward to the opportunities to further enhance our customer experience across our expanded footprint.”  


“We are excited to have David in this role,” says Craig Dwight, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Horizon. “He brings a wealth of experience and broad market oversight to the position. We anticipate continued growth across these markets under his leadership.”
