2020 was a difficult and challenging year. At Flagship, we battled the pandemic on our clients’ behalf and tried to keep ourselves and our loved ones healthy at home.

As we approach the second half of 2021, Flagship is looking toward a brighter future post-COVID-19, and a responsible return to normalcy, however that may look in your home and neighborhood!

Part of that brighter future at Flagship is the result of the dedication and teamwork between Operations, Sales and Marketing throughout 2020. Flagship accepted and successfully launched five airport janitorial contracts since April 1, 2020 – despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The dramatic expansion of our aviation portfolio makes it possible for us to announce the following promotions for some well deserving Flagship teammates.

Please join us in congratulating these team members on their hard work and accomplishments!

Thank you, Jose, Gus, Jeff, Jovani, Jason and Charles for bringing your best to Flagship every day!
