After 5 Detroit expands services, adds one more staffer

After 5 Detroit has a new online look and a little bit bigger staff reflective of the downtown Detroit-based business's continued to growth.

The new website focuses on things going on in the city, such as events, new places to live and new businesses opening or re-inventing themselves. The 6-year-old company has become a conduit for major downtown corporations to attract, retain and recruit young talent.

"The website redesign is very much an example of the evolution of the company," says Kerry Doman, founder & CEO of After 5 Detroit. "The redesign is meant to address the most common questions we receive from recent grads. Lifestyle is one of those most important things."

After 5 Detroit is enjoyed increased revenues, allowing it to grow its staff. The company now employs three people and a couple of interns after hiring one new person over the last year. Doman hopes to expand further as the company expands.

After 5 Detroit is also facilitating its internship program for major downtown stakeholders this year. The third year of the program is expected to bring more than 1,000 interns downtown this summer, facilitating several hundred internships at the likes of Quicken Loans, Chrysler, Blue Cross Blue Shield and DTE Energy.
