It’s been a long and eventful road to becoming head of DAMAC Properties for Hussain Sajwani, but he has worked hard to build the company he founded in 2002 to one of the most successful property development companies in the Arab world and beyond. However, DAMAC was not always the property development giant it is today — in fact it started as a catering company that played an integral role in the United States Military’s Operation Desert Storm and Hussain was awarded a plaque commemorating his companies excellent service. After a ruling by the Dubai government that allowed foreigners to begin owning property Hussain Sajwani switched real estate development and began DAMAC in 2002, a wildly successful move that has launched Sajwani to #3 on Forbes’ list of wealthiest from the United Arab Emirates. Today, DAMAC claims a revenue of nearly $2 billion annually and employs roughly 2,000 people while building some of the most high-end developments around.
Born to an entrepreneur in Dubai and educated at the University of Washington in America, Hussain Sajwani has reeled in a number of high-profile clients as DAMAC Owner. Perhaps most famously, he has partnered with legendary golfer Tiger Woods and the Trump Organization to build the highly anticipated Trump World Golf Club in Dubai which is set to open at some point during 2018. The course will be set in some of the most sought after real estate in all of the Middle East and will feature top-level courses, restaurants, practice facilities and pro shops.
However, it is not just building and ambition that drives Hussain Sajwani, he is also considered a man of the community. In 2013, Hussain Sajwani generously donated AED $2 million to clothe a million children worldwide. The donation was in celebration of the spirit of Ramadan and has gone a long way in making a difference in the live’s of children who are desperately in need of basic clothing and shelter. Hussain Sajwani, owner of DAMAC properties is a clever businessman, and still keeps up an effort to better the world around him.
