The new appointments are effective immediately.“I’ve always been inspired by what Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California has been able to do for children and families facing tough situations,” said Ball. “I’m excited to be taking on this new position with the team and look forward to continuing the great work that’s already been done.”Ball joined Parsons Corporation – an engineering, construction, technical and professional services company – in 1995 and assumed his current position in 2008.
