Wolf to leave board of family-owned business

Gov.-elect Tom Wolf is stepping down from the board of directors of the family-owned cabinetry and furniture distribution company that he ran for nearly three decades.

Wolf, who is currently the non-executive board chairman of The Wolf Organization, said Thursday he will leave the board Dec. 31. He retired as the company’s chief executive officer at the end of last year, shortly before the Democrat declared his candidacy for governor.

Wolf still owns a 28 percent stake in the company.
