Patrick Ball has held a wide range of positions throughout his professional career in varied industries. Upon graduating from Penn State, he joined The York Bank & Trust Co., starting in the Accounting Department.

These themes continued when Patrick moved to The Wolf Organization, Inc. and assumed the role of Director of Internal Audit.
