Throughout his long and storied entrepreneurial career, Hussain Sajwani has consistently demonstrated a deep desire for letting his cultivated business-knowledge become his vehicle for generating ideas and growing his business ventures. The DAMAC Owner currently heads up the leading Middle Eastern real estate development firm DAMAC Properties and has also been deeply involved in the catering and hospitality industry over his long business career. Hussain Sajwani was born in the Middle Eastern nation of Dubai during the 1956 calendar year and was noted for excelling in many different areas during his youth. One of these areas was in the realm of entrepreneurial endeavours. Coming from an entrepreneurial family, he learned a great deal from helping his father in running the family’s business. The lessons that Hussain Sajwani learned during that time period would eventually help him to go on and become the DAMAC Owner. Hussain also displayed a huge propensity for academic success and this led him to the opportunity to study at the University of Washington in the USA. This opportunity allowed the DAMAC Owner to obtain a degree in Industrial Engineering and another in Economics.
When Hussain Sajwani returned to his native Abu Dhabi, he took up a position with GASCO for a time but soon moved on as he had become interested in starting a catering business. By applying his business acumen to this endeavour, Hussain was able to grow this business quickly and to develop the wealth that would eventually allow him to start DAMAC Properties in 2002.
This catering firm of Hussain’s became known by the moniker of Global Logistics Services. A large part of the company’s business was generated by a contract that he was able to garner with the armed forces of the USA. Through this contract, he was able to provide meals to army forces stationed in the Middle East in countries such as Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar. Hussain Sajwani even branched the firm out into the hotel business. Today, Hussain’s focus is on his role as the DAMAC Owner. DAMAC Properties is the real estate development agency that has been responsible for the construction of properties that range from commercial and residential to recreational. Some of the most iconic Middle Eastern structures to go up since 2002 have been a result of the work of DAMAC Properties.
