Adam Milstein is an Israeli- American businessman and philanthropist. He has set a mission to instill the Jewish Pride by fostering brotherhood. He was born in Israel and spent his early childhood in Kiryat Yam. After high school, he joined the military, which was a requirement from the government. As a military officer, he fought in the Yom Kippur war in 1993. Later, he enrolled for a degree in the University of Teknion. He got married to Gila, and they moved to the United States where he furthered his studies.
Today, he is a prominent businessman and philanthropist. Together with his wife Gila, they founded the Adam Milstein Family Foundation. Through this organization, they offer charitable services to a wide range of organizations that work hand in hand to strengthen the Jewish people.
With an aim to establish his role and contribution to Hager Pacific Properties, and his path to success, Ideamensch conducted an interview with the philanthropist. In regards to the start of Hager properties, Milstein attributed it to the fact that employers who sought to employ him didn’t appreciate his life experiences and knowledge. The companies offered him a far much less salary than undergraduates were receiving. Adam went out on his own and began his career as a real estate broker. Three years later, he became an investor in the real estate industry, and consequently, Hager Pacific Properties was born.
A typical day for Milstein involves a lot of details and managing activities. However, he says that when one has acquired more assets, the structure is more complicated and having a schedule on what to do changes with emerging issues. Adam involved himself in philanthropic work that made his days much more satisfying.
As an entrepreneur, following up, consistency and persistence are among the fundamental values one should possess. To the young entrepreneurs, he said that understanding the issues themselves other than relying on other people is important. Milstein said that being part of the solution enables one to understand and have a better experience in their field of practice. To grow, listening to critics wears a person down. Therefore, he made sure to take heed to the positive critics and ignore the rest. Being patient and always doing the best contributed much to his success.
