-Los Angeles Times

YH delivers hundreds of millions of views every month by tirelessly understanding our audience and the platforms where they live their lives.
YH has become the only company that has the proven ability to repeatedly build digital brands which form powerful bonds with audiences around the world across the media platforms that matter to them most
WHERE WE DO IT
Since 2010, Young Hollywood owned and operated an innovative production hub located full-time within the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills. The venue hosted hundreds of live events and gave the opportunity for fans worldwide to interact with their idols in a unique one of a kind intimate way.
RJ Williams is the Founder and CEO of Young Hollywood. Started in 2007 by Williams, YH has become one of the most innovative digital media brands and the leading celebrity and lifestyle network for millennials. YH has rapidly grown to heavily influence today’s pop culture by creating and establishing emerging trends both within the industry and throughout the world.
In 2003, Williams launched Arjay Entertainment Group, a television production company, with a client roster that included ABC, FOX, CBS, TV Guide and Showtime. Arjay Entertainment quickly developed a reputation for providing the most compelling celebrity programming, and ultimately helped create a new identity for an industry — Young Hollywood.
A natural evolution for Arjay Entertainment, RJ Williams launched the Young Hollywood brand, which is available on digital, social and mobile in over 160 countries and in over 120 million homes.
Williams also works closely with some of the most well respected brands in the advertising world, advising them on how to create innovative ways to touch consumers through one-of-a-kind brand integrations and experiential marketing campaigns. Clients have included Fortune 500 brands such as Subway, H&M, Unilever, Adidas, and Coca-Cola.
RJ Williams attended the prestigious USC Film School and has become one of the country’s leading authorities on marketing to today’s youth, trend spotting and shaping the culture of Hollywood.
He has been profiled in media such as USA Today, Fortune Magazine, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Variety, The Los Angeles Times, AdWeek, Fast Company, BBC World News, ABC News, and chosen for The Hollywood Reporter’s Digital Power 50 List, which said, “Everything Young Hollywood CEO and founder RJ Williams does is counter-intuitive — and effective.”
