DeSantis names Miami Beach real estate investor, donor to FIU Board of Trustees
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is tapping Yaffa Popack, a Miami Beach real estate investor who co-hosted a six-figure fundraiser for the governor last year, for a seat on the Florida International University Board of Trustees. Popack co-owns Lauderdale Lakes-based YMP Real Estate Management with her husband Moshe Popack. Last year, the couple hosted a fundraiser for DeSantis at their 10,000-square-foot home in Miami Beach, an event that the governor’s political committee reported as a $200,000 in-kind contribution.
