Horizon Bank Opens Commercial Office in Fort Wayne Indiana

October 11, 2016 10:02 AM

Michigan City, IN — Horizon Bank announces the opening of a commercial office in Fort Wayne, Indiana, to serve the needs of the local business community.


The new location will offer commercial loans and cash management services (such as online payment processing). Greg Haney, Market President of Fort Wayne, will be heading a team of Commercial Loan Officers on site, with the potential for residential mortgage origination in the near future.


“What we’re looking to accomplish is to really get back to basics,” says Haney.  “Our primary focus is building lifelong relationships through our delivery of exceptional service and sensible advice, while contributing to the economic growth of the community.  It’s really all about relationships.”


The office is strategically located in the Dupont Road area, a high growth area on the northwest side of the city. It will serve an area that holds the second-fastest growing school system in the state, and some of the largest employers in Allen County.


Sustained Growth


Horizon Bank has experienced a strong period of growth in recent years, with new locations throughout north and central Indiana, and southern Michigan. The bank prides itself on making solid commitments to the communities in which it operates, and on providing Sensible Advice on diverse financial needs. “We are always looking for the right opportunities to be a strong contributor to the communities we serve,” says Haney.


This new location will not be a full service banking facility, but will focus on serving local business customers with a robust line of business products. Horizon sees it as a first step into the market, with potential expansion of services in the future.


The Fort Wayne office is located at 10020 Auburn Park Drive.
