Chris DesRoches to Become President of Flagship Recreation

Move correlates with business expansion, new building

St. Louis Park, Minn. (Dec. 17, 2014) –

Flagship Recreation, a St. Louis Park, Minn.-based playground design company has named Chris DesRoches, 28, president of the organization, effective Jan. 1, 2015. Current President, Grant DesRoches, will retain an active role working on future growth initiatives.

"In the past five years, Chris has led Flagship Recreation to tremendous growth through his vision of evolving into a design – build company," said Grant DesRoches. "It is time to increase his responsibilities so that he can better implement his vision."

In addition, Flagship Recreation has begun the relocation to a new office at 4940 W. 35th Street in St. Louis Park, Minn. The expanded location will allow for Flagship Recreation to better serve clients across the state by broadening their scope in playground and site design, construction, and maintenance.

"Growth in business has led to increased hiring and a need for more space," said Grant DesRoches. "The desire to offer faster delivery of parts and service has made us realize that we need more capacity to house inventory and our larger fleet of service equipment."

The move is expected to be completed by the end of December.
