From the time that he was a very young man, Hussain Sajwani has been a man in pursuit of excellence in all things that he does. Born the son of a shopkeeper and a homemaker, young Hussain would sit in his father’s shop and hear about the world of business and the bright future that was coming to the middle east thanks to the economic boom that was underway. It was these men, the powerful men who were his father’s customer, who would have the biggest impact on his future. His father would, after being given insight and advice from these men, often close up his shop, where he sold upscale accessories such as pens and watches, to pursue sideline business opportunities in the emerging real estate sector. When he did these deals he would usually let the young Hussain Sajwani tagalong, and it was on those excursions that a passion for real estate and for business was born. Hussain decided that he didn’t want to follow in his father’s footsteps and be a shopkeeper selling wares to powerful and wealthy businessmen. Instead, he wanted to be one of those businessmen and give his family a good life while building an enduring legacy that the world would recognize for generations.
After a brief stint attending a prestigious medical university on a full scholarship, he discovered that while he loved science and medicine, he didn’t have the same passion for it that he had for the world of real estate and business. He left the school and returned home and started a company that would one day be known as The DAMAC Group. Right from the start the company was very successful and within a few short years they had millions of square feet of real estate under development in the luxury residential, upscale retail, high-level commercial, and premier recreational markets. Hussain Sajwani would take this early success and parlay it into a multi-billion dollar empire that spans the entire middle eastern region, and significant locations all over the world. He has partnered with some of the most powerful people in the real estate industry, including Donald Trump, with whom he has developed two of the largest and most expensive golf resorts in the world.
Real estate developer Hussain Sajawani is not only the head of DAMAC, but he is also a man who is generous and giving to the world around him. He works with, or contributes to a wide variety of non-profit organizations and philanthropic causes around the world, including a recent donation through the company of more than AED 2M to help cloth underprivileged children around the world, and a major donation to a program designed to help provide drinking water to developing cultures.
Hussain Sajwani, the DAMAC owner, is more than just a corporate tycoon, he is also a man who has strived to be the best in everything that he has ever set his mind to. With the passion that he shows not only in running his company, but also in how he works to make the world a better place, it is little wonder that he is respected as a role model as much as he is as a businessman.
