Lazar and the Finker-Frenkel Family Foundation

Getting involved in Jacksonville
In the early 1990s, Lazar Finker accepted an offer to serve as a visiting professor at Florida Community College in Jacksonville. After relocating with his wife and young son, Lazar’s success in the classroom inspired a longer stay than the family originally anticipated. Lazar and his spouse, Raissa, made a home here in the United States.
Today, Lazar and Raissa run a large private equity firm with a focus on domestic investment, particularly real estate and seafood.
