Wolverine Bank became Horizon Bank on November 13, 2017


Michigan City, IN (November 13, 2017) – Horizon Bank announces Wolverine Bank in Michigan and Horizon have finalized their merger. With the completion of this union, Horizon Bank’s branch network has expanded to sixty three offices throughout southern Michigan, northern and central Indiana and Ohio.


On Monday, November 13th Wolverine Bank signs have been changed to Horizon and systems integration is complete. All Wolverine Bank customer accounts have been transferred to Horizon with very little action required on the part of the customer. In order to make the transition as smooth as possible for Wolverine Banks’ customers their checks, direct deposits, payments, and account numbers have remained unchanged.


“We are happy to finalize the partnership with a like-minded institution like Wolverine. We look forward to providing creative financial solutions while maintaining the commitment of service and preservation of community banking values Wolverine Bank has throughout the years in the Great Lake Bay Region and Southwestern Michigan,” said Craig M. Dwight, Horizon Bank’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.


As part of this consolidation, Horizon has retained all the retail branch personnel at all three branches so former Wolverine Community Bank customers will have familiar and friendly faces available to assist them with their banking needs.

“Customers can now do their banking at any Horizon branch they choose in southern Michigan as well as our branches in northern and central Indiana– giving them greater access and convenience,” stated Dwight. He further commented, “This partnership will enable these branches to offer complementary product offerings as well as continued commitment to the local communities in the Great Lakes Bay Region.”
