Hussain Sajwani is the founder of DAMAC, which also includes DAMAC Properties and the DAMAC Foundation. Hussain Sajwani was born in Emirati and was able to go through school until he was of age to move to the United States. Once he was in the states, Hussain looked to Washington University for enrollment where he spent several years earning degrees. His first degree was in engineering, followed by a degree in economics. After completing his education in the United States, Hussain moved back home to Emirati and found a job as a manager at an oil company known as GASCO. Hussain remained at GASCO for two years as a manager until moving onto the catering industry.
in 1982, DAMAC Owner Hussain Sajwani was on track as a successful entrepreneur with successful runs in the catering and hotel industries and by 2001, he created the idea for DAMAC Properties. The Dubai market for real estate was in a pretty shabby place at the time and real estate developer Hussain wanted to take advantage of the emerging market as many places around the world were beginning to build up. The Dubai market quickly exploded and there were tons of visitors coming to the country, some of which elected to stay. DAMAC Properties specializes in luxury property, from homes to apartments and hotel villas. To date, DAMAC has worked on more than 20 thousand projects across Dubai, the Middle East, and many other countries, including the United States.
DAMAC Properties has close ties with the Trump party since Hussain Sajwani is good friends with Donal Trump. They have collaborated several times in the past on business deals and Donald Trump even spoke of Hussain during the New Years Eve Event in the US. In 2013, DAMAC constructed two golf courses for the United States President as part of the Trump International Golf Club. Watch Sajwani’s video on YouTube.
