Hussain Sajwani grew up with a conservative family, being raised by both his mother and father who were small business owners. Growing up to a father who had his very own shop and a mother who sold goods to women nearby for extra cash, he was no stranger to the hard work that needed to be done to be an entrepreneur. As Hussain grew and watched his father run the store, he noticed a lot of the struggles and it really deterred him from wanting to get into the family business. Though his father wanted him to take over the business, Hussain declined and decided to follow his own dreams to work a more lucrative business.
Hussain Sajwani took the leap and started his very own company in 2002. He named his company DAMAC group and they decided to be focused on leisure properties, residential properties, and commercial properties in Dubai and the rest of the middle east, as well. DAMAC has won numerous awards for large projects that they have done across the middle east. Some of the most exciting projects they have worked on include projects completed in Saudi Arabia, the UK, Qatar, and of course Dubai.
DAMAC is no small player and they are currently working on and have previously worked on massive projects throughout the middle east. For example, they have worked on two large developments in Dubai with a total of 100,000,000 square feet of space and another one the totals over 42,000,000 square feet of space. Both of these projects, of course, are not your average single-family residential home. The 100,000,000 square foot space became a luxury golfing community in Dubai. While the 42,000,000 square foot space became mansions, luxury apartments, and villas.
DAMAC also works with some of the top people in the industry like golfing professional Tiger Woods. The great thing about the DAMAC group is that they did not stop with real estate. Hussain Sajwani started another sector of the company that focuses on hospitality and catering in the Middle East. Their catering business is also a major player in the market, serving high-end clientele.
