Hussain Sajwani is a University of Washington alumnus who established the international property development company DAMAC Properties. He started out as a contract manager at a subordinate of Abu Dhabi National oil Company known as GASCO. Shortly after, he pioneered his own business establishment and later in 1982 he ventured into catering.
The DAMAC owner began his real estate endeavors in the mid 90’s, being one of the first to deal with property expansion in Dubai. He constructed various hotels to create accommodation for the inundation of people coming to the emirates to either vacation in or for business purposes.
By 2002, Hussain Sajwani had familiarized himself with the property development market and in turn established DAMAC properties- an establishment that has since snowballed to be one of the top property development company throughout the Middle East.
DAMAC properties is involved in the development of residential, commercial and leisure spaces. Damac properties are commonly associated with flamboyant properties and their irresistible marketing styles. Hussain Sajwani has managed to incorporate his catering venture with DAMAC properties.
The catering business is still a part of DAMAC operations as it is a reminder of Hussain Sajwani’s initial expertise. He’s not letting those skills go to waste as DAMAC gears up to utilize the UAE property prices recovery to their benefit.
DAMAC properties collaborated with Donald Trump beginning of 2013 to co- develop two golf courses. The Trump International Golf Course Dubai opened earlier this year at one of DAMAC’s stunning master developments- Damac’s Akoya residential development.
The second golf course- the Trump World Golf Course which is apparently designed by Tiger Woods, is rumored to open at a different DAMAC development at the end of next year. This has created a great opportunity for the Hussain Sajwani family to partner with the best.
