Hussain Sajwani is certainly a successful real estate developer in the United Arabs Emirate and middle east who has come a long way. The Damac owner began as a food service provider to the US military. During this period of 1990s as a new entrant in business, Sajwani worked with the construction corporation Bechtel, where he also engaged in food services business. He continued with this business until 2001 when he immersed himself in the field of real estate. Hussain Sajwani’s introduction to the business followed a move by the Dubai government that permitted immigrants to own property.
Hussain Sajwani was very determined to get the best out of the real estate business immediately after he started. Luckily, in a period of less than half a year after his venture in the business, he managed to sell a considerable number of units to a residential building. In 2002, Sajwani founded Damac Properties, a high-ranking company in Dubai and some Asian countries.
Since its inception, Damac Properties has extended its scope of services to different countries including Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and several North African countries. The company is primarily a private residential, commercial and leisure developer that has more than 2000 employees. As the Damac owner, Sajwani enjoys the vast skills and expertise his employees exhibit in the business, right from the purchase of lands to ultimate sale of developed estates.
In 2013, Damac owner Hussain Sajwani partnered with Donald Trump in developing Trump-branded golf courses in Dubai. Sajwani’s family enjoys a close relationship with Trump’s family as he describes Trump’s children as close allies of his wife. In a previous event where Hussein Sajwani attended a dinner at Trump’s estate in Florida, Trump described the Damac owner as a close friend. At a later date, Sajwani assured his friends and the general public that his business ties with Trump will continue.
Hussain Sajwani has been instrumental in charity programs, especially during the Holy month of Ramadan. The Damac owner has contributed over AED 2 million to charity initiatives of the Dubai government and non-profit organizations. He supports the less fortunate, especially children in abject poverty. Sajwani believes that the young generation deserves better living standards as they are the future of society.
