Billionaire entrepreneur Hussain Sajwani, who founded DAMAC Properties, looks forward to doing more business with President Donald Trump. Born and raised in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Hussain Sajwani has successfully worked with Trump years ago to complete several of his swanky new golf courses: Trump International Golf Club Dubai and the Trump World Golf Club. Both of these courses are located on the grounds created by Dubai’s DAMAC Properties, a luxury residential, commercial and leisure developer. The Trump Estates at DAMAC Hills is an exclusive gated community. It’s filled with luxurious villas that are placed on a private island overlooking the lush golf course. The Trump-branded villas and golf course of DAMAC Hills have already raked in over $2 billion in sales.
Hussian Sajwani had established DAMAC Properties back in 2002, the real estate developer was a former financier from Abu Dhabi Gas Industries. He ventured into the real estate industry shortly after his government had issued a promising decree that gave foreigners access to own properties in Dubai. His first residential building had sold out all its units, nearly 6 months prior to even laying down its foundation. Thereafter, Hussain Sajwani’s company had skyrocketed to become one the largest luxury developers in the Middle East. His company has partnered with world-renowned luxury brands such as Bugatti, Versace and Fendi.
Hussian Sajwani (@hussainsajwani), who lives in Dubai, is currently married and shares four children with his wife. In 2017, Hussain Sajwani’s son Ali, who serves as the general manager of operation at DAMAC, was honored and acknowledged at the Arabian Business Achievement Awards. During the event, he was chosen as one of the “Middle East’s Future Stars.” His daughter Amira, who also works at the real estate development company, is the vice president of operations. Sajwani’s company initiated a charitable foundation that actively supports children by offering easier access to proper education and skills development. In 2017, the DAMAC Foundation signed a partnership memorandum that aims to fully sponsor the One Million Arab Coders Initiative, a program that offers free software development training to a million aspiring young coders living in the U.A.E.
