Meet Our Leadership


We are all familiar with the quote: “With great power, comes great responsibilities”. At Horizon, we believe leadership starts with 5 basis principals; Communication, Knowing Your People, Knowing Yourself, Diplomacy and Seeking Feedback. Without being guided by these basis elements of leadership, it is challenging to motivate, guide and cultivate a winning team.

As effective leaders, we take a personal interest in the long-term development of our team members, and we push each employee towards achievement by making continued education a part of our culture. We encourage our leaders to focus on and cultivate each of these areas of leadership as part of our continued training and education.

Purpose Driven

At Horizon, we are driven by the desire of making positive impacts within the communities that we serve. We do this by setting measurable goals to put our business strategy and purpose statement into action. Focusing on our purpose allows us to set meaningful organizational strategies that guide our decision-making towards maximizing positive impact.
