As the Chairman of DAMAC Properties, Hussain Sajwani has illustrated that with exemplary leadership, an organization can prosper. Since the inception of DAMAC Properties in 2002, Sajwani has steered the company’s growth by ensuring that he’s always one step ahead of his competitors. DAMAC Properties was founded when foreigners were permitted to own land in Dubai by the government.
Ali Sajwani was the father to Hussain Sajwani (@HussainSajwaniOfficial). As an entrepreneur, he passed on the necessary entrepreneurial skills that he had gained over the years to his son, Hussain Sajwani. He did so by making sure that Hussain Sajwani spent a considerable amount of time at the family shop immediately after the school hours. Since Hussain Sajwani was a keen fellow, he noticed that his father had a tough time running the family shop, which is why he didn’t express any interest when his father told him that he would be in charge of the family shop in future.
Hussain Sajwani knew that formal education would play a key role in his journey to success. He therefore studied Industrial Engineering and Economics through a government scholarship. That earned him a spot at the University of Washington. After graduating, Hussain Sajwani handed over his curriculum vitae to various companies in pursuit of a job. Luckily, he was recruited by GASCO, and he started working as a contracts manager. Even though the job was well paying, Hussain Sajwani needed some self-fulfillment. He resigned after working for two years at the corporation. Finally, Sajwani had the chance to pursue his passion for entrepreneurship. He invested his savings in a catering venture that flourished exponentially.
The catering business generated millions of revenue. Hussain Sajwani re-invested the money in land. Sajwani sold part of his property since he was interested in investing in the real estate sector. He used the money to found DAMAC Properties, a company that has registered a positive portfolio over the years because of the unique property that they develop. Hussain Sajwani also donates funds to justifiable causes through DAMAC Properties. For those interested in pursuing real estate, DAMAC CEO Hussain Sajwani is the perfect role model. He has accomplished a lot regardless of his modest beginnings.
