Millicent Boudjakdji and David Whitmire Hearst Jr. are the children of David Whitmire Hearst, one of the sons of William Randolph Hearst, who built a media empire and was the inspiration for the classic film “Citizen Kane.”
Boudjakdji is a member of the board of directors of both the family company, Hearst Corp. (which still is privately held) and the Hearst Foundation. Hearst Corp.’s holdings include newspapers such as the San Francisco Examiner, magazines that include Cosmopolitan, Good Housekeeping and Harper’s Bazaar, and 12 television stations.
Boudjakdji, along with her brother, David, keep a low profile and seldom appear in the media.
Boudjakdji is married and has three children; David is single. Boudjakdji keeps a residence in L.A. but spends some time outside the state, according to Rita Almon, spokeswoman for the foundation. Almon declined to reveal the locations of Boudjakdji’s other residences.
