OUR STORY

New Horizon Bank was founded in Powhatan, VA about 20 miles west of Richmond. In 2009, a group of local business owners had a vision to meet a need – a community bank to provide an alternative to large regional and national banks.  Powhatan is comprised of merchants, small manufacturers, farms, individuals, and families -- a small town demographic similar to many communities across the country.  But local doesn’t mean isolated – it is often the pathway to innovation and streamlining processes for busy professionals and individuals.

 

Through investment and innovation New Horizon Bank works to combine the traditional service experience that defines community banking with the technology and products of the 21st century. Our priorities reach beyond the numbers, and beyond the success of the bank itself. We have high standards for our client’s experience and seek to build long term partnerships with our customers. Our team works to anticipate our clients’ needs and deliver innovative solutions to help them meet their financial goals. We work hard to be the bank of choice and employer of choice in our markets.

 

New Horizon is a community bank that customers can count on for business needs and our commitment to local prosperity means local dollars are invested in your community.  Community is also not restricted to geography, which is why our state-of-the-art technology allows you digitally bank with us anytime and anywhere it’s convenient for you.  When our founders opened the doors in 2009, it was with the vision of “A New Dawn in Banking”.  That’s a piece of tradition we still maintain today in our commitment to provide our customers with the highest level of personal service along with leading the field in innovative technology.
