Hussain Sajwani is a business man and real estate mogul who worked his way to the top of the game in Dubai. He started his career managing for the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, saving up to eventually open a catering business which grew to serve the U. S. military among other large-scale corporations.
As soon as foreigners were allowed to own property in Dubai Sajwani started his own real estate venture, DAMAC Properties, eventually opening luxury apartments all over the city and developing two golf courses with Donald Trump in 2013.
DAMAC Properties, started in 2002, now holds over twenty thousand homes leased to the rich and famous of Dubai. Sajwani boosted his company’s reputation for luxury properties by making branding deals with high end companies like Lamborghini, Versace, and Bugatti.
Hussain Sajwani and his company DAMAC Properties contribute to charity in many ways. Most notably, the DAMAC chairman donated two million AED to a national charity whose goal is to provide at least one million underprivileged children with clothing. This funding initiative was developed and supported by the Sheikh himself. This donation alone was enough to provide for fifty thousand children. Mr. Sajwani was quoted as saying that the children of the Emirates were the future of the Emirates, and that giving them a good start in life was crucial.
Recently, the DAMAC Owner has expanded his real estate empire to the United Kingdom, opening properties in London. He has won many awards and titles for his prowess in property management, including CEO Of The Year, Real Estate Legend, and Business Leader Of The Year. He has also been called “the Donald Trump of Dubai.”
Hussain Sajwani is married and has four children. His oldest son, Ali, has already begun to follow in his footsteps by winning titles for his business acumen from the Arabian Business Achievement Awards.
