Each year people spend billions of dollars to invest and do various businesses across the world. A few of these businesses survive and continue to offer services to their respective communities while some of them succumb to debts and exit the market. This is different with DAMAC Properties, a company whose headquarters are in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Hussain Sajwani, DAMAC Properties CEO started the company in 1976. To date, the company has grown to become one of the most successful multinational companies in the world that deals with architecture, engineering, real estate and construction.
Things have not been easy from the time Hussain Sajwani started DAMAC Properties. However, with wit, proper planning and with the help of other industry experts, Hussain Sajwani has been able to take DAMAC Properties to another level. For instance, when the company started to build a magnificent structure in Dubai, news went all over about the beauty and the masterpiece although construction had just started. Later, the DAMAC Properties founder Hussain Sajwani named the house Trump International Course Dubai. While many people thought that this was Hussain’s ingenious way of drawing Trump’s attention to the UAE, the truth was revealed when Sajwani’s family were invited to Mar-a-Lago. The aim of the invitation was for the family to be among the 800 closely hand-picked VVIPs to celebrate Trump’s win in the 2016 Presidential Elections that had just taken place. During the dinner party celebration, both Donald Trump and Hussain Sajwani made remarks that showed how close the two families are.
First, Trump called the Sajwanis the ‘most beautiful family from Dubai.’ On his part, while acknowledging the invitation, Hussain said how the two families have exchanged visits to each other’s homes, something that happened many days before Trump decided to join Politics.
Many experts help Hussain Hussain to run DAMAC Properties. They include Adil M. Hassan the Chief Financial Officer, Ali Sajwani, the Operations General Manager, Ossama Abbas, the Sales Operations Manager, and Mohammed Tahaineh, the Commercial Senior Vice-President among others.
Hussain is also a philanthropist. Recently, during Ramadan, an initiative started by UAE’s King to help 1 million needy children, Mr. Sajwani (@hussainsajwani) donated 2 million AED to help clothe 50,000 children.
