June 6, 2011 01:10 PM

Horizon Bancorp has once again been listed as one of the Top 200 Community Banks by US Banker magazine in its June 2011 edition. This is the fourth consecutive year Horizon Bank has received this recognition as one of the nation's top community banks.

The list includes publicly traded banks and thrifts with less than $2 billion in assets, and rankings are based on a bank's three-year average Return on Equity (ROE).

 "Horizon is pleased to be recognized as a top-performing community bank for the fourth consecutive year.  We have a dedicated team of advisors who make sound decisions and are committed to providing one-on-one financial advice to customers.  I'm proud of our team and know that we will continue to strive towards achieving this recognition in the years ahead," said Craig M. Dwight, President and Chief Executive Officer.
