LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz.—Aug. 16, 2018—Horizon Community Bank will soon be expanding its presence in Lake Havasu City with the addition of a second location, breaking ground last week at 101 Retail Center Drive. Expected to open early 2019, this location will house the mortgage department and provide traditional branch services for business and personal banking.
“We’re very proud of the work we do for the Havasu community in to helping the area grow and thrive,” says President/CEO Jerry Ernst. “Adding a second location allows us to expand our ability to contribute while improving convenience for our customers.”
It’s exciting to create a solid locally owned business banking resource for Lake Havasu at a time when other banks are closing branches, rather than opening them, he adds.
“We’re here to help businesses from the ground up, whether it’s education around financial basics or walking them through a complex loan process to borrow for their business and personal needs. Every day, we’re able to help a business grow their ideas into something bigger that benefits the entire community,” says Ernst.
The bank is also using local resources to build the branch, something important to its mission of supporting local businesses in every possible way. “We’re 100 percent focused on our community. Their success is our success.”
This new expansion will grow the community bank to a total of six branches and four loan offices (ten locations).
Horizon Community Bank is a locally owned and operated FDIC insured commercial bank with branches in Lake Havasu City, AZ; Fort Mohave, AZ; Mesa, AZ; Parker, AZ and Quartzsite, AZ; plus loan productions offices in Kingman, AZ; Goodyear, AZ; Phoenix, AZ and Henderson, NV. Horizon Community Bank is a subsidiary of holding company Horizon Bancorp, Inc.
