Orrstown to replace chief technology exec

Orrstown Financial Services Inc. is replacing its chief corporate technology officer, Benjamin Wallace, who is leaving the bank to pursue a new venture.

Wallace will be leaving Orrstown in September. Taking his place will be Andrew Linn, who works currently as the bank’s senior vice president and chief information security officer. 

Wallace has worked at Orrstown since 2013 and is departing to pursue a new business venture in the arena of financial technology, also known as fintech, according to Orrstown spokesman Luke Bernstein. Additional details were not immediately available. 

“This is an exciting time, both for Andrew to take the reins, and for me to expand upon my skills and training as I pursue a new venture,” Wallace said in a statement.

Linn first joined Orrstown in 2014. He worked previously as executive director of application security and information management at JP Morgan Chase.

“The succession from Ben to Andrew is a seamless transition that positions Orrstown for continued success,” Thomas Quinn, Orrstown’s president and CEO, said in a statement. “Ben did an excellent job for Orrstown, and I would like to thank him for his contributions, and wish him luck in his next venture.” 

Based in Shippensburg, Orrstown Financial has assets of roughly $1.5 billion and offices in Berks, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Lancaster and Perry counties, as well as in Maryland.

Orrstown’s subsidiaries include Orrstown Bank and Wheatland Advisors Inc.which it bought in 2016.
