Horizon Bank Crosses $4 Billion in Total Assets and Celebrates its Continued Success


Horizon Bank is proud to announce reaching a new milestone in total assets. The bank has now surpassed $4 billion in total assets, demonstrating its continued growth trajectory and strength in the marketplace.


This is the first time in its 145-year history that Horizon Bank has surpassed $4 billion in total assets. “We are excited to see that our efforts and hard work have paid off for all of Horizon’s stakeholders,” said Craig Dwight, Chairman and CEO of Horizon. “This new milestone is a considerable accomplishment and something that we are all extremely proud of achieving.  This growth helps us to continue on our mission of serving local communities through our outstanding employees, competitive products and services and to provide donations of time and money that make a real difference in the lives of our customers and communities that we serve.”


Horizon is a company on the move as it continues to make acquisitions throughout its Indiana and Michigan markets. Horizon’s acquisition strategy is to partner with like-minded community banks that have similar values. Dwight credits Horizon’s success to profitable acquisitive and organic growth.  “Our acquisition strategy has proven successful as a result of our outstanding integration team and their ability to conduct smooth conversions of various operating systems and onboarding new associates.  Horizon’s organic growth continues to exceed expectations due to our seasoned team of core bankers who deliver exceptional service and sensible advice.  This two prong approach to growth is the driver of Horizon’s continued success”, said Craig Dwight.


“Horizon is a prosperous company with solid performance,” continued Dwight.  “We attribute this prosperity to our talented group of advisors and leadership team who exhibit a remarkable work ethic; support the company’s vision and values; continuously look for new business opportunities and accomplish their goals.”
