Adam Milstein is an Israeli-American activist, real estate investor, leader in his community, and a philanthropist who is a native of Israel. He graduated from the Technion in 1978, and as soon as he arrived in the United States, he got to work on an MBA and earned it at USC. After this, he became a real estate agent working in Commercial Real Estate and eventually became a Managing Partner at Hager Pacific Properties. His idea to join up with Hager came from the fact that he realized that his talents and skills would be underutilized and he would be underpaid working in some of the other positions that recruiters at his college were offering. This motivated him to work as a Real Estate Commercial broker and then eventually go into business for himself as a real estate investor.
Adam Milstein is the chair for national expansion, the National Chairman, and a co-founder of the Israeli-American Council. His wife, Gila, and himself also co-founded Sifriyat Pijama B’America, which is an organization that offers free books in Hebrew on a monthly basis. The organization teaches over 15,000 Israeli-Jewish-American families in the U.S.A. Jewish values. Adam Milstein also serves on the boards of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) National Council, Stand By Me, Birthright Israel, Hasbara Fellowships, StandWithUs, Jewish Funders Network, and the Israel on Campus Coalition. Adam Milstein and his wife, Gila, also started the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation in 2000, which helps to educate young professional Jews and students who are Jewish about their roots, their special connection with Israel, and to offer them knowledge that supports the State of Israel and its people.
Adam Milstein was once asked what one thing would he do again and again as an entrepreneur to be successful. He commented that the best thing an entrepreneur can do is to understand an issue for themselves. Instead of relying on other people, get your hands dirty and work on the solution yourself. He also promotes not following the status quo by worrying about hitting goals. He has, personally, found goals to be extremely limiting and simply focuses his efforts on always doing the best job he can.
