Businessman Hussain Sajwani, an Emirati native, is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of DAMAC Properties headquartered in Dubai. In 2017, Mr. Sajwani was listed as one of the top 10 billionaires in Forbes list of World’s Richest Arabs. The accomplished leader is highly known for his luxury property development portfolio but has also created long-term, sustainable wealth in ventures such as catering, insurance, securities, investments, and commercial trading. Hussain Sajwani’s company DAMAC is listed at $4 billion plus.
The entrepreneur hails from humble beginnings-from the age of 3 he accompanied his self-employed father in the company’s business. He experienced his father’s long work hours and long-term absences away from the family. For a living, his father sold watches and pens imported from China. His mother also had a hand at entrepreneurship as a neighborhood fabric vendor. While his father manned the storefront, young Hussain Sajwani experienced ad hoc entrepreneurship training at its best. This type of experience fostered an innate sense of business savvy and skill.
As a young man, he leaned toward medical school-then sometime later decided to partake in real estate investing. This endeavor gave him an opportunity to utilize his entrepreneur background. The astute businessman excelled. Everything that he touched turned into gold. His first real estate deal in Dubai garnered sales before the construction plans were set into motion. He shortly created DAMAC Properties in 2002 and continued to develop his strategy of creating an intense demand for his developments. Hussain Sajwani began delivering the unimaginable in real estate luxury.
He has partnered with multiple big brand labels such as Versace, Fendi, and Bugatti to offer enrichment and next level luxury to his clients. The corporate heavyweight has developed Trump-branded, high-end leisure and luxury golf communities with real estate legend Donald Trump. Hussain Sajwani has established a powerful and diverse conglomerate, that through advanced expertise and great creative vision, will continue to thrive and achieve aggressive, sustainable growth and prosperity in years to come.
