The business exploits of Hussain Sajwani is gradually taking him beyond the Middle East having conquered the later already. This is a feat that demands acknowledgements and commendations considering the fact that Hussain was not born with a silver spoon in his mouth. His father, a middle class in Dubai, was saddled with the huge responsibility of catering for five children and their mother. Hussain was the eldest and knew that much is expected from him. He started exhibiting his entrepreneurial skills by assisting his father while working a watch shop, but young Hussain never toy with education. He dreamed of a university education one day, so when his peers were nonchalant about western education, he kept reading all night burning the midnight oil. It came as no surprise to close friends and relatives when he eventually graduated from the University of Washington with a B.Sc. in Economic and Industrial Engineering in 1981.
Hussain Sajwani knew where he was heading for from the outset. He wanted to build a business empire, so he spent only a couple of years working for others. Lack of sufficient capital could not deter him. His mind was fixed on starting something of his own no matter how small. The idea of a catering venture came to his mind, and he plunged into it headlong. It took only few years for the business to ascend to the peak of the industry as the company now serves as many as 200,000 meals per day aside hundreds of other money spinning projects it carries out concurrently. The catering outfit even executes projects as far as the United States.
In 2002, this entrepreneurial giant of man, decided to venture into the property development industry by putting together a company known as DAMAC Properties. Today, the company is the largest in the industry owning several international standard hotels. Also, DAMAC is a reputable construction firm. There is hardly a Middle East country without projects executed by DAMAC.
Beyond the Middle East, DAMAC presence is also conspicuous. For instance, the current United States President, Donald Trump, had a number of his golf courses developed by DAMAC in 2013. He had since then kept a good relationship with the DAMAC owner, so it was no surprise when he referred to Hussain Sajwani as an amazing fellow shortly after he won the presidential election.
The Hussain Sajwani family business empire also includes other companies such as DICO Investments, Al Jazeira Services, Amana Building Materials, Al Anwar Ceramic Tiles Co. All these companies are doing fabulously well. Also, Hussain Sajwani is a philanthropist to the core with a couple of charity foundations to his credit.
