Hussain Sajwani, Founder, Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer of the DAMAC Properties has achieved monumental successes over the years. Mr. Sajwani officially launched the DAMAC Properties in 2002, the firm specializes in residential, leisure, and commercial development as well as investments. The skillful businessman grew from humble beginnings, helping out in his father’s watch and pen business. He later explored attending medical school, then went on to invest in his first residential building in Dubai, successfully selling units before reaching construction. This led to creating DAMAC Group. Hussain Sajwani focused on Middle Eastern cities with spark and pizzazz. This type of environment provided him a rich canvas for creativity. His accomplished towers and skyrises are poised for success; they sit in highly pursued areas in very exotic cities. Usually, fine dining, lavish entertainment, and upscale shopping are minutes away from the developer’s installations.
DAMAC Properties are in the midst of developing two massive developments in Dubai, totaling a sum of 100 million square feet. The mixed-use development communities will offer well-appointed acreage committed to social life, shopping, and entertainment venues-along with variations of luxury housing. In 2013, Mr. Sajwani and real estate businessman Donald Trump have teamed together, developing properties that include The Trump International Golf Course Dubai and The Trump World Golf Course-which will open as separate developments. The Trump World Golf Course was inspired and designed by golf pro, Tiger Woods, and will open towards the latter part of 2018. The DAMAC Properties went public in 2013, it is now listed on the London Stock Exchange-becoming the first firm from the Middle East to be listed. The DAMAC owner will continue expanding on his real estate portfolio, with designs of embarking on new territory across the world. Mr. Sajwani’s net worth is estimated at well over $4 billion. He contends that with hard work and dedication, anyone can be successful in achieving their goals.
