Hussain Sajwani: A Pioneer in the Real Esate Industry

Hussain Ali Habib founded DAMAC Properties Dubai Company PJSC on June 20, 1976. The company focuses on real estate development in the Middle East. It is headquartered in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.



Because of their previous successful business partnerships, the Hussain Sajwani family is looking to do more business with the Trump Organization. The two firms collaborated on the Trump International Golf Club that has earned nearly $2 billion in sales. Because of the perceived conflict of interest, Trump has stated that he won’t be involved in any new business deals while president. Sajwani said that he has a good professional and personal relationship with the Trump children and that they can handle any new business deals. Sajwani feels that Trump being president will be profitable for his company. Learn more:


The DAMAC owner takes great pride in the company’s roots in the food industry. The company supplied food to American troops during the first Gulf war in 1991 and other operations around the world to include Bosnia and Somalia. Despite being known for its real estate success, the food industry still is a big part of the company. His involvement in the food industry allowed Sajwani to make important friends across the world.


The Sajwani family is deeply committed to helping others and frequently gives back to the community. In support of the Dubai government, the company made donations to provide clothing and other goods to keep over 50,000 children warm. Mr. Sajwani believes that the kids are the future and that they need support and the right environment to be successful in life. DAMAC properties collaborated with Emirate Red Crescent to raise over $120 million dollars towards the clothing campaign. The company’s hospitality division, which was started in October 2011, focuses on support to residents of apartments they serve around the world. Learn more:
