Adam Milstein is a businessman and active philanthropist based in the United States. He is of Israeli origin and graduated from the University of Technion in 1978. As a requirement by the Israel government, Milstein performed his years of service in the military by participating in the Yom Kippur war. A few years later, he married Gila and moved to the States for further studies. In 1983, Adam graduated from the University with a Master’s degree in business administration. He would then venture into commercial real estate business. Today, he is a managing partner at Hager Pacific Properties.
Besides his interests in the real estate industries and other business ventures, his name stands up high among the greatest philanthropists. Adam is the chairman of Israeli- American Council. Through Adam and Gila family foundation, he extends his charitable activities with the aim of fostering brotherhood among the Jewish community. He represents the community at the board of Israeli on Campus Coalition, StandWithUs and Birthright Israel among others. Together with his wife Gila, the couple funds the Sifriyat Pijama B’America organization. The institutions distribute free monthly books written in Hebrew with the aim of keeping the Jewish culture alive among the Jewish-American families.
After graduation, one can only expect to land an excellent opportunity worth their education. However, it was not the case for Adam. Companies seeking to recruit saw him as underqualified and offered him way much less than a graduate got. Eventually, he decided to go out on his own and consequently, Hager Pacific was born. Adam says that bringing an idea to existence requires persistence, resilience and hard work. In the real estate industries, some ups and downs need a lot of patience. Adam considers the ever-changing market exciting. To the young entrepreneurs, he encourages them to participate in problem-solving actively. Participation ensures that they get to understand the problem and contemplate the issue.
The desire of reaping big in a short time should, however, be put aside. Success requires time and materializes slowly. Additionally, an investor shouldn’t invest all his capital in one idea. Distribution is likely to give you profits and minimize the risk. Finally, Adam advised entrepreneurs to always follow up on leads and every contact.
