Hussain Sajwani is a dynamic business leader with great vision and great success. He’s played an instrumental role in the Damac Group. He is their Founder, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and the visionary who has helped put Dubai on the map with its world-class luxury developments. The Damac owner quickly understood the importance of the government decree which for the first time allowed foreigners to own property in the United Arab Emirates. With his nose for business, he saw foreigners as the principal buyers for his envisioned luxury apartments. It has led him to an extraordinary career.
Starting on land that was undeveloped he was able to sell every unit of his proposed development before they were constructed. With this modest start, Damac has grown into a luxury powerhouse which has almost single-handedly made Dubai into a shining, upscale city. Dubai, with its luxury and attractions, now rivals any city on earth as a must-experience destination. Hussain Sajwani was a critical player in bringing about this result.
Count Donald Trump as a fan of Hussain Sajwani and his Damac Group. They have had a long-term prosperous relationship in their business dealings. Together they have embarked upon developing two Trump branded golf courses. The Akoya residential development, a Damac Group property, is home to Trump International Golf Course Dubai which opened in February of 2017. There is also a Tiger Woods designed golf course slated to open in 2018 which is also a collaboration between Trump and Hussain Sajwani.
Before Hussain Sajwani and Damac Group reached the spotlight with their luxury developments, Sajwani started in the food service industry where he served the US military and the huge construction firm called Bechtel. He still owns and operates the food service business.
Damac Group and Hussain Sajwani are also active in the philanthropic realm. They support charities which focus on the health and well-being of children. They have supported humanitarian efforts as well in the wake of natural disasters in the region. One example of this was the rare winter storm called Huda which struck in Jordan and Lebanon. Their outreach involved a sizeable donation for those displaced and homeless as a result of this unfortunate occurrence.
The Hussain Sajwani family has a history of entrepreneurialism. Sajwani’s father owned a store and his mother sold goods to local ladies from their home. He learned first-hand from his family about the successes and failures that an entrepreneur faces. He’s truly soared to fantastic heights.
