Adam Milstein is a man who genuinely believes that education is the key to acquiring leadership and his life proves it so. After going to the Israel Institute of Technology and graduating with a degree in Industrial and Business Management in 1978, Adam Milstein and his family relocated to the United States in 1981 where he then graduated from the University of Southern California in 1983 with his MBA. Being that he had equipped himself with degrees based in his passion for business, he decided to follow in his father’s footsteps by pursuing a career in real-estate. He first started off in the industry by working as a sales agent. However, after maximizing his true potential and exerting himself to learn as much as possible upon networking throughout the field, he was granted the opportunity to serve as a managing partner for Hager Pacific Properties in California. Based out of Encino, California, the privately owned real-estate investment firm specializes in the redevelopment of commercial properties and is estimated to own over $2 billion in property value from a collective of over 100 properties across the United States. Moreover, as managing partner, Adam Milstein is entrusted with the authority to manage all of the company’s disposition and financial aspects.
Ironically, being that Milstein had accomplished working for a company that specialized in the rehabilitation of properties, he sought to fulfill his innate sense of being a humanitarian and wanted to help rehabilitate society by uplifting the Jewish community from being under consistent attack. With the help of his wife, he founded the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation in 2000 to administer a wide range of support to the Jewish community including Jewish education, policy research, training for young professionals, community service, and preventing anti-Semitism. In addition to his contributions to the community through the works of his foundation, Adam Milstein is also actively involved through his service as a chairman within one the largest non-profit Jewish organizations in the world, the Israeli-American Council (IAC). As a leader in the council, Milstein strives to maintain cultural ties between the United States and Israel as a means to form a powerhouse and incorporate allies to dissipate the rise of global anti-Semitism and enforce human rights. Nevertheless, as one of the most profound leaders to the Israeli-American community, Milstein continues to develop ways to promote leadership within the Jewish community and strives to inspire the general population to inherit his mission of peace.
