Horizon Bank Announces New Market President for Central Indiana


Michigan City, IN — Horizon Bank is pleased to announce the recent addition of Dan Hampton to (the) Central Indiana team. He will serve as the bank's new Market President for the Indianapolis area.

Having spent the past 6 years working for an international bank covering real estate for 6 locations across the Midwest, including the greater Indianapolis market, Hampton says he's happy to return to working locally. "I've lived in the central Indiana area for many years, and I very much enjoy the Indianapolis area," he said. "I'm excited to align myself with a strong community bank that is passionate about serving clients with creative financial solutions that meet their individual needs."

In his new role at Horizon Bank, Hampton will be charged with helping to grow its commercial lending business throughout the Central Indiana region.

"Dan has a deep background in commercial banking, and has held management positions in community banks as well as very large financial institutions," notes Bill Denton, Horizon's Regional President for Central Indiana. "We're very excited to have someone of his experience level devoted to growing our commercial business, and to recruiting additional, talented commercial bankers."

Horizon Bank entered the Central Indiana marketplace in 2012 with the acquisition of Heartland Community Bank, followed by new full-service banking centers opened in downtown Indianapolis in 2014 and Carmel earlier this year.

As Hampton says, "We're certainly aiming to build upon the great success and momentum experienced by the team here over the past 3 years.”

As part of this strategy, Hampton said that he and his Commercial Lending team will work closely with their Horizon colleagues. By referring clients across Retail, Private Banking, Mortgage, and Business Banking, he notes that the bank will have more opportunities to efficiently and effectively serve their customers by meeting every type of need.
