Hussain Sajwani may be one of the most powerful and wealthy men in the world, but he didn’t just wake up one day that way. He didn’t suddenly find himself being the head of one of the largest, most profitable, and most financially stable companies in the world the DAMAC Group. He didn’t establish strong and mutually beneficial relationships with some of the most connected and powerful captains of industry and heads of state in the world overnight. These things he accomplished not by accident, or by having them handed to him, but rather by hard work and perseverance.
Starting out life as the son of a humble shopkeeper and a homemaker, Hussain Sajwani saw his father selling his wares, upscale accessories such as pens and watches to the powerful men who were at the head of the economic revolution that the middle east saw from the mid-70s to the mid-90s. It was presumed that Hussain Sajwani would follow in his father’s footsteps and take over the family shop, but rather than do that Hussain wanted to pursue a career in business.
Hussain Sajwani (@HussainSajwaniOfficial) worked hard and earned a full scholarship to a prestigious medical university, but after discovering that his true passion still lay with the world of business and real estate development he dropped out of the program and returned home. It wasn’t long after this that he founded the first incarnation of what would today be the DAMAC Group. Right from the start he and his partners were a success. Within a couple of years, they had millions of square feet of upscale luxury real estate under development in the hospitality, retail, commercial, and residential sectors. The real estate investor would develop a reputation for success and that led to further opportunities with some of the worlds most respected developers including future United States president Donald Trump. With Trump, he would develop two of the most expensive luxury resort golf courses in the middle east, one of which is the most opulent and elegant golf course and resort facility in the world.
Throughout his rise to power as chairman of the DAMAC group Hussain Sajwani has strived to not only succeed, but to do everything with the highest level of ethics and transparency. He is a prime example of how one can come from lowly origins and work hard to become a leader in their industry and a role model for others.
