Discover the Philanthropic and Entrepreneurial Life of Hussain Sajwani
Being a wealthy property developer, philanthropist, and renowned entrepreneur at the same time is something rare to find. Many people have tried to combine these three things in life with no success. Nonetheless, Hussain Sajwani is a man who beat all odds when it comes to achieving these three things. He owns DAMAC Properties, a multi-billion property development venture. The head offices of DAMAC Properties are based in Dubai. Although he is the one who came up with this great investment company, Sajwani is also the chairman of the company’s executive board. Through DAMAC Properties, Sajwani has worked with some of the prominent people in the world such as President Trump.
His relationship with President Trump is so deep that the President on one occasion referred to Sajwani’s family as beautiful people. DAMAC Properties manages and oversees most of the Trump’s real estate investments since his government affairs and tasks cannot allow him to do so. The great passion Sajwani has for business could be associated with the business environment he grew in. His father was a successful businessman who dealt with imported goods such as pens, shirts, and watches from China. Sajwani received a government scholarship that took him to Washington University to study industrial engineering. He graduated with a degree in economics and industrial engineering from this university. This became his stepping stone to his successful entrepreneurial journey.
Don’t forget that Sajwani was once a staff member of Abu Dhabi Industries in 1981. He worked with the finance department of this company for about two years before he founded a catering venture called Bechtel. This catering venture aimed at providing its top-notch catering services to the United States military. But before it could do this, it had to rebrand from Bechtel to Global Logistics Services. Although DAMAC is a real estate company, it is good to know that it started as a catering company. Sajwani is a family man, and he lives with his family in Dubai. He is married to one wife, and they are great parents of four wonderful children. He is naturally philanthropic, and he has committed himself to helping many charitable organizations and causes. He wrote a two million check, which saw more than 50,000 children get proper clothing and food.
