Adam Milstein has been a Managing Partner at a private real estate investment firm named Hager Pacific Properties since 2011. The Israeli-born businessman and his family moved to the U.S. in the early 1980s to pursue a better life, and within a few years after the move, he’d earned an MBA degree from the University of Southern California, then he began his career in the commercial real estate industry by becoming a sales agent. He went on from there to later become an investor at Hager Pacific Properties, which is the owner and manager of 100 properties throughout the U.S. specializing in securing and renovating homes for profit.
In addition to being a successful executive, Adam Milstein is also a philanthropist whose aim is to help Jewish youth stay connected with their heritage. Through the Adam and Gila Foundation, which he founded along with his wife in 2011, he provides sponsorship for the education of Israeli students that will encourage them to identify more with their Jewish lineage. Adam Milstein is also the co-founder and the National Chairman of the Israeli-American Council, which is one of the largest organizations in the country that is geared toward providing support to the nearly one million Israeli-Americans that currently live in the U.S.
Because of his efforts to assist those who share his heritage, in 2016, he was named one of the Top Ten 100 People who have positively influenced the lives of Jewish people in America. Adam Milstein is also an adviser to aspiring entrepreneurs, who he teaches to be passionate about solving problems related to their business, and to remain consistent in how they handle their operation. He also feels that since criticism cannot be avoided in the business world, entrepreneurs should learn from it instead of feeling discouraged by it.
Other charitable organizations that Adam Milstein and his wife are involved with include ones called Stand With Us, Project Interchange and the Israel Project. The proud Jewish businessman and father of 3 daughters was born in Haifa, Israel in 1952, and he currently resides in Encino, California with his family.
