Richtopia, which is a London-based publication, recently released their list of the 200 Most Influential Do-Gooders in the World. Adam Milstein was honored to be named as #187 on this list. Adam joined the names of other top philanthropists such as Bill and Melinda Gates, Barack Obama, Elton John, Elon Musk, and Warren Buffett.
In a statement acknowledging his placement on the list, Adam Milstein said that his philanthropy is one of the most important things he does and he was honored to be named. He continued on, adding that the Adam and Gila Family Foundation he and his wife founded served two purposes. They want to strengthen both the Jewish People and the State of Israel as well as enkindle Jewish pride in the younger generations of Jewish people.
Adam Milstein is a native of Israel. He graduated from the Technion, earning his Bachelor’s of Business and Economics. Adam and his family moved to California in 1981 and he graduated from the University of Southern California in 1983 where he earned his Master of Business Administration. After graduating he worked for a few years as a commercial real estate broker before founding his own real estate investment company, Hager Pacific Properties. He serves as the Managing Partner of Hager Pacific Properties and manages its day-to-day activities, investments, and property management as well as its accounting and financing. His company’s specialty is buying older properties, refurbishing them, and then renting them out to new tenants.
As the owner of properties across the United States, one of the things that Adam Milstein enjoys most about the industry is how up and down it can be. He’s said that it can take a long time and large amount of patience to earn money in the industry, especially when waiting for demand to catch up to supply.
Adam is involved with a large amount of Jewish nonprofits. He is the co-founder of the Israeli-American Council and serves as its National Chairman. He also sits on the board of a large number of nonprofit advocacy organizations including the Israel On Campus Coalition, Jewish Funders Network, American Israel Public Affairs Committee National Council, and StandWithUs.
