It is Our Job to Help You


Founder Jules Young

After graduating from Concordia University in Montreal, with a psychology degree, Jules Young, like many others, mesmerized by the entertainment world, decided to head to Hollywood to pursue a career as an actor. After a short time, he realized that was not the career for him and instead decided he would become a teacher, his love for helping people made that a terrific choice. During his 10 teaching years, he obtained a masters degree from UCLA in psychology and yearned to be around the passionate entertainment field again.

In 1978, he made it possible to merge his two passions together, entertainment and helping others. Jules bought the Friedman agency in 1978 for a nominal amount and quickly turned it into a multi-million dollar corporation. As mentioned in entertainment trade magazines such as The Hollywood Reporter, Variety, and as one of the top 101 most influential people in Hollywood by Entertainment Weekly magazine. Jules is known in town as someone who knows people, including many celebrities, and someone who makes things happen!


Still working the desk in his offices high above the famous Sunset strip, he is placing candidates and assisting clients every day! He is proud to have the best entertainment clients in Hollywood, all of whom have come to rely on him and his agency. Each day he comes to work, along with his dog Bella, he satisfies his passion and has placed thousands of applicants who now are executives in town!


Despite having traveled all over the world, assisting Hollywood is still his greatest passion and when he is not working or spending time in his West Hollywood home or Palm Springs villa on weekends, he is involved in the two charities, LA Free Clinic and Desert Aids Project.


Jules is easily available to all applicants and clients. Feel free to call Jules for any needs you may have!
