Steve Ohl. President

Steve Ohl

I’ve lived in Lehighton my whole life, and worked at the family business since I was a child. I went to college, and upon graduation, I returned to help operate R.F. Ohl. I really enjoy meeting and talking with all the people that I get to see. I’m actively involved in local community events and organizations. I like to spend time with my wife (Kim) and family grilling, fishing, camping, and listening to music.

Patti Hartman

Finance Manager
I’m originally from NJ but attended Bloomsburg University and have lived in PA most of my adult life. I love making a difference and being part of a team. I am driven to make things better, from mentoring and encouraging single mothers to improving and streamlining processes. I love new adventures. I’ve flown airplanes, had my CDL, have my motorcycle license, speak Spanish fluently, traveled to Spain, Venezuela, Mexico, and Jamaica, and enjoy participating in mission trips where I can serve others. I’m married to my amazing husband Steve. I am a proud mother to Mary, Juli, Matthew, Christopher, and Michael; Stephanie, Christine, and Rebecca are my beautiful stepdaughters. Steve and I are active in Blue Mountain Community Church, teaching Sunday School and VBS, offering childcare for Celebrate Recovery, and I’m active in the BMCC Mommas ministry. We love hockey (Let’s go Pens!) and being outdoors. We are so grateful for the beauty that surrounds us here in Northeast PA and around the world.

Customer Care Manager
I’ve lived in the area my whole life. I found early on that I enjoy working with, and helping people. I completed my business internship with RF Ohl in the summer of 2008. After graduating college, in the fall of 2008, I decided to continue employment at RF Ohl because of the family oriented atmosphere. I enjoy spending time with my husband, children, and our 4 legged fur babies. In my free time, I like doing crafts, being out on the motorcycle and making memories with my family.
