How Hussain Sajwani Built DAMAC Properties Into A Business With International Scope
While Hussain Sajwani is mainly known for being the founder, chairman of the board, and chief executive officer of DAMAC Properties, this wasn’t actually his first business venture. He founded this company in 2002 but 20 years before he established his first business which started out as a fledgling catering venture. Today this catering venture, Global Logistics Services, is an international firm feeding over 150,000 people a day at hotels, construction sites, military bases, and other places where a large number of people congregate.
DAMAC Properties is also international in scope. As Hussain Sajwani is a UAE national his first real estate projects were located in and around Dubai. He has also built residential and commercial property developments in other Middle Eastern cities like Cairo, Abu Dhabi, Damascus, Jeddah, and Ankara. He recently started building a luxury residential tower in London called Tower Nine Elms London. Once this DAMAC Properties project is completed it will have 50 stories and an ultra-modern look inside and out. He partnered with Vercase Home on this tower who are completing the interiors to their usual opulent standards. He’s also looking to build in Asia and North America.
Hussain Sajwani (@hussainsajwani) has also partnered with Donald Trump on some properties. One of these is the DAMAC Hills mega project. This development includes DAMAC Properties first golf club which will be managed by the Trump Organization. Hussain Sajwani’s company is presently putting in the finishing touches on a similar project called OKOYA Oxygen which also has a golf course, this one personally designed by Tiger Woods.
Hussain Sajwani is a family man who is married and has four children. His oldest son, Ali Sajwani, graduated from Boston’s North Eastern University and has an economics degree. He returned to the UAE after graduating and now works at DAMAC Group, Hussain Sajwani’s umbrella firm, as a general manager of operations. He also recently had his daughter, Amira Sajwani, get married. Attending this event was Sheikh Hamdan, the Deputy Ruler of Dubai, a number of royal family members, and many foreign dignitaries.
