Hussain Sajwani is a respected entrepreneur. He is the founder of DAMAC Group. The alumnus of the University of Washington started his profession by working for Gasco as a contracts manager. Gasco is Abu Dhabi National Oil Company’s (ADNOC) subsidiary. After working for the company for a while, he ventured into the catering business. Through the food service business, the executive was able to work with the U.S. military and other renowned companies, including Bechtel. Today, the catering division is part of DAMAC Properties.
For long, President Donald Trump has maintained a cordial relationship with Hussain Sajwani family. In the recent past, Hussain and Trump entered into a partnership that resulted in the development of the Trump International Golf Club. Notably, when the two were undertaking the project, Trump was not the president of the United States. The sale of luxury villas from the project generated more than $2 billion. President Trump posited that he would not engage in any business deals while he is in office. This way, he would avert potential conflicts of interest. Hussain Sajwani contended that his relationship with the Trumps moves beyond the president to his sons, Eric and Donald Jr., and daughter, Ivanka. Sajwani posited that he would establish a good working relationship with Trumps children considering that they have vast entrepreneurial skills.
Hussain Sajwani says that he incorporated DAMAC Properties in 2002. This is after the Dubai government had issued a decree that allowed the public, including non-Emiratis to own property in the country. To this end, Hussain started by purchasing land in an undeveloped part of the city. He went on to construct modern houses. Less than six months before Hussain Sajwani started the actual construction, he had sold many units in the 38-story residential property. The shrewd entrepreneur played a pivotal role in putting Dubai in the map, as a glittering destination. Over the years, DAMAC properties has been developing leisure, commercial and residential properties in the United Kingdom, Lebanon, Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and UAE. The DAMAC owner contends that the corporation is fully committed to service excellence.
Hussain Sajwani is heavily involved in philanthropic activities. In a Ramadan campaign initiated by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum to clothe a million needy children around the globe, Hussain donated AED two million.
