NOVI, Mich  – Residex announced changes to the structure of their ownership board. Chris Donaghy, founder of Residex and orchestrator of the Residex – Turfgrass merger, will move to the position of Chairman of the Board. “This is the natural progression of the merger plan that Chris developed in 2010,” said Frank Ralko, V.P. of operations, Residex.  “Chris’ contributions to Residex are without parallel. Residex functions as a family that cares for one another and our customers.”

Ralko added, “Chris has successfully unified the cultures of two companies and communicated his vision of what Residex needs to be in order to be successful in a dynamic marketplace. The senior management team has beenbworking diligently to execute the merger plan that was laid out by Mr. Donaghy in late 2010.
