The Real Estate Mogul and Philanthropist, Hussain Sajwani

Hussain Sajwani is not a golfer, but he is building courses in his new real estate development projects. Hussain Sajwani family is doing this in partnership with the Trump organization. One of the courses opened in February 2017 and the Trump-branded course is nothing but amazing. The second course which is designed by Tiger Woods will open towards the end of 2018. Hussain Sajwani has come a long way as a businessman. He founded his company DAMAC Properties in 2002 after the Dubai government allowed foreigners to own property in the country. He sold his first 38-story building in less than six months before he had even started construction; which was a start of something huge for the now billionaire real estate mogul. With a net worth of $4.8 billion, he helped shape the Dubai market to what it is today.


The DAMAC owner started his business career in the food service industry where he had good success. During that time he had clients like the U.S. military and Bechtel, the giant construction company. He however diversified but kept the business, and is still operating under his watch. The company today is named Global Logistics Services.


Hussain Sajwani admits that his success in business has been as a result of vision and luck. This is however mostly due to the hard work he put into the business. When Dubai had a sharp downturn in real estate prices, the company stuck it out with all the challenges they faced. The resilience paid off as he set off to build the Akoya in 2012. Through the company’s creative marketing and resilience, the company has thrived. The company has 166 billboards in Dubai. From time to time the company also gives free luxury cars to buyers and much more.


The creative approach set the company apart from the competition and shot Mr. Sajwani straight to the billionaire list. Mr. Sajwani is also a philanthropist at heart. He recently instructed his company to donate two million Arab Emirates dollars to charities that are working with underprivileged kids. The goal was to clothe 50,000 kids around the world. The company did this without hesitation. It takes a lot to care about those less fortunate when you are blessed with abundance.
