While many people may know that Hussain Sajwani is an Arab businessman and the founder of DAMAC who is listed as one of the top billionaires in the world by Forbes, they may not know where he came from or what he has accomplished. The truth is that he grew up working with his father on-and-off at his father’s commercial shop. Sajwani learned quite a bit about the business world during this time and discovered a love for entrepreneurship as well. As soon as he was able to, he worked hard enough to receive a government scholarship to go to an American college, and that college was the University of Washington where he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Industrial Engineering and Economics.
Husaain Sajwani went to work after this and quickly learned enough to startup his own catering business. This business was an instant success and has continued to be over the years. Soon after he found his first success in the business world, he founded DAMAC, which is a luxury property development company that has built thousands of properties ranging from apartments to homes. Since his humble beginnings, he has worked with a spread of well known people and brands including Tiger Woods, Versace and Fendi, and the current President of the United States, Donald Trump.
The DAMAC owner, Hussain Sajwani, has paired up with Donald Trump as a business partner who has helped to design, build, and maintain the golf courses that serve the residents of DAMAC’s luxury properties. He has been close enough to Trump and the Trump Organization that his entire family visited and took part in a New Year’s Eve celebration at Trump’s well known Mar-a-Lago estate. Donald Trump referred to Hussain Sajwani and his family as “beautiful people,” and Sajwani in return has commented that he would love to continue the business relationship with Trump and his organization.
Hussain Sajwani has also been a philanthropist for most of his life, and his AED two million donation to the Emirates Red Crescent charity organization went to put clothes on the back of a million kids who were in dire need of keeping warm.
