Prior to working at Say Media, Young was chief experience officer of Organic, the Omnicom digital agency.

David Carey, president of Hearst Magazines, told the New York Times, Young was chosen because of his track record of working in pure play digital businesses. He said those ware "increasingly the companies to watch in terms of how quickly they produce product, the orthodoxies they set aside and how they assemble their talent".
