Hussain Sajwani Relishes The Challenge Of Working With Global Business And Political Leaders

The rise of Hussain Sajwani and his DAMAC Properties company has taken many around the world by surprise but not those who have followed the rise of this United Arab Emirates based business leader closely.

Never an entrepreneur to sit still and wait for the next business deal to arrive at his table, Hussain Sajwani set out to expand his business interests with the development of a chain of mid-market hotels. Sajwani identified the new democracy of the states of the former Soviet Union as an area where tourists were looking for new areas for a vacation and were looking towards areas of the Middle East for their top destinations which required the creation of new hotels to keep up with demand.


DAMAC Properties would eventually be born in the early 2000s when Hussain Sajwani set out to develop luxury real estate properties in Dubai after a change in the law allowed non-citizens to own property in the city. Since this time the DAMAC owner has become known for the luxurious nature of his luxury developments which became famous for the offer of a luxury Bentley car for every buyer of his apartments. The success he has achieved in developing luxury real estate has allowed Hussain Sajwani to become a business partner of members of the UAE Royal Family and U.S. President Donald Trump. The development of Trump-branded golf courses in and around Dubai has led to the profile of Hussain Sajwani and DAMAC Properties being raised around the world.
