As fans we love to give credit to our favorite DJs/producers but tend to forget about the people working behind the scenes – the managers. Arash Shirazi is the CEO of The Bullitt Agency, which manages more than 40 international DJs including Dubfire, Better Lost Than Stupid, Davide Squillace, and Satoshi Tomiie. Arash started his managing career when his brother, who was a DJ as part of the duo Deep Dish, was in desperate need of a manager. Fast forward 13 years later, Arash now has a staff of 15 who are primarily in their 20′s, and they’re taking roughly 10-15% of the earnings from each night… safe to say he’s living a pretty good life! All the success that has come to Arash Shirazi was earned, and can be attributed to his early days in the business when he would drag himself to shows every night until he finally made a name for himself. To find out how Arash deals with DJ egos, the challenges of working internationally, and the struggle he overcame when he first started his business, take a look at his profile in Fast Company Magazine.
