In 2002, Hussain Sajwani founded the global property company called DAMAC, a company he considers a family owned company. In the middle 1990’s, Sajwani had built several hotels in the Dubai to accommodate the growing population. He was a pioneer in the country’s economic expansion. Long before he started his career, Hussain Sajwani earned his economics undergraduate degree at the University of Washington. Today, a family man Sajwani is married and the father of four children.
After he graduated from the University of Washington, Sajwani became a contracts manager at GASCO that is a part of the National Oil Company. By 1982, Sajwani established Draieh Management Services Co. Ten years later, the manager also established a company called DICO Invest. Hussain Sajwani ran a catering business. His catering business served many countries including CIS, the Middle East, and Africa. The catering service had supplied food for people working at construction worksites, army camps, educational institutions, 5 Star hotels, and more.
Hussain Sajwani’s company DAMAC, bought some undeveloped land to construct what would be Sajwani’s first 38-story residential building. Vacancies were completely sold out six months before the building was completed. This residential building allowed foreigners to finally own property. The DAMACs company employs 2000 people and developed more than 16,800 homes. In addition to helping the population of Dubai, Sajwani has been involved in celebrity oriented properties including a golf course for Tiger Woods that will be managed by the Trump Organization. DAMAC is also going to build a Luxury Apartment with Italian Versace designed interiors.
Through their business deals, Sajwani and Donald Trump have established a business partner relationship. Together the two billionaires have worked together to establish the Trump International Golf Club, a $2 billion project. Two and a half weeks before the Presidential inauguration, Trump threw a New Year’s Eve party at his Floridian estate, Mar-a-Lago. There were 800 guests including Hussain Sajwani and his wife. When Trump and Sajwani are together, partying or having fun they talk social talk and forget about business. Trump and Sajwani do not mix business with pleasure.
