Now Entering Russ's World
DAMAC owner Hussain Sajwani graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a degree in Industrial Engineering and Economics. In 1982, he began a catering venture that has grown and expanded to make him a leader in the global property development industry. As the founder and Chairman of DAMAC Properties, Hussain Sajwani manages more than 200 projects in a variety of markets.
Sajwani was one of the first to take advantage of the property development opportunities in Dubai back in 2002, establishing DAMAC Properties. This company has since grown to be one of the largest of its kind in the entire Middle East. DAMAC owner Sajwani’s portfolio includes more than 44,000 units and more than 17,900 homes at all stages of progress.
As mentioned in aliqtisadi.com, his success in the industry can be attributed to many factors that have allowed him to live-out his professional vision. As a child, he helped with his family’s business, which gave him an “entrepreneurial spirit.” Even in college, he began taking risks by selling time-share apartments. He used the capital from that venture to create a catering business that was a quick success; expanding regionally.
As Hussain Sajwani’s catering business grew, so did his interest in real estate. He learned what he could and dove right in, developing small hotels at first. These small hotel developments funded larger plans he wished to bring to fruition; such as large towers in the Dubai’s prime areas. By imagining how he believed Dubai should like in 1 or 2 decades, he found and continues to find inspiration. He uses advancements in technology, marketing, and social media to his advantage to expand DAMAC’s capabilities.
Hussain Sajwani (@hussainsajwani) brings some serious talent and natural qualities to DAMAC Properties. He uses his knowledge and ability to travel to expand his horizons and deepen his education. He uses lessons from the past to hone and develop great ideas. DAMAC owner Sajwani spends a majority of his time expanding his network of business partners, his management team, and community members. And to ensure his life is always balanced, he remembers to spend his most-valuable time with his family.
