Paxahau expands staff by six partly through intern hires

Paxahau moved from Ferndale to Greektown a year ago. In that time, it has hired six new people. Coincidence? The people behind the electronic music company don't think so.

"It's a very strong relationship between what we do and the city limits proper," says Jason Huvaere, president of Paxahau. "It's very important for us to be here. And we love being here."

Paxahau moved into 3,500-square-feet of office space above Flood's Bar & Grille in the Cronice & Slate Building, adjacent to the Blue Cross Blue Shield campus. Its 15-person staff organizes large events in the city and beyond, such as the Movement Electronic Music and Detroit Jazz festivals. That staff also includes dozens of interns during those events, which serves as a talent pipeline for the company.

"We hire a lot of our interns," Huvaere says. "We just hired two of them."

The company is currently working on rebranding Movement and redesigning the festival's layout to fit the changing contours of Hart Plaza. It's also working on enhancing its music technology to better capitalize on the music produced at its events.
