Hussain Sajwani: The Man Behind The Successful DAMAC Properties

Home / Hussain Sajwani: The Man Behind The Successful DAMAC Properties

Hussain Sajwani stands as an incredibly well-known name who has shaped up the real estate industry in the UAE multiple times during his career. He stands as the founder and leader of DAMAC Properties, a company that partakes in a number of luxury real estate ventures. While he may be one of the biggest names in real estate, few people know the roots that he came from and the story that led him to be the well-reputed name that he is today.

 

Growing up, Sajwani didn’t always have all the luxuries that he has today. His father owned a small shop in the UAE, which is also where Sajwani would go to work as a little boy. He states that during this period, he learned more about business, professionalism and other facets of being a good leader more than what he would have on his own. He is incredibly grateful to his father for giving him that experience, which has shaped him up to be the real estate leader that he is today.

 

One of the recent projects that businessman Hussain Sajwani undertook that got him a lot of attention was the construction of a luxury golf course, in association with the Trump organization. This was a project that proved to be one of the most successful that Sajwani had undertaken, and was something that got him the international limelight. Within a short span of the project hitting the market, people from all over the world become interested in the project that Sajwani had put forth. The project saw many potential buyers who all wanted to purchase a space in this luxury project and DAMAC Foundation.

 

Hussain Sajwani had braved many challenges when it came to setting up his real estate empire. Even during the fall of the real estate industry in 2008, Sajwani was one of the few who was able to implement measures to help his company stay afloat. Even in the midst of a crisis, he was able to shine as a business leader who could genuinely lead his company, no matter what kind of financial or economic situation they were put into.
