There are few individuals in the business world who have the ability to transcend the food service industry and the luxury real estate market in the way the Hussain Sajwani family has over the past three decades. Hussain Sajwani developed the DAMAC group from the 1980s onward as a food service provider who made fast moves to develop from a small member of the industry to a provider of food services to the U.S. military during the Iraq conflict of the 1990s.
As a business leader, Hussain Sajwani has spent much of his career looking for the next step to take in a bid to push forward the DAMAC group and develop its interests in a range of different industrial sectors; in 2002, the latest investment opportunity for the Sajwani family was revealed as the luxury real estate sector, which has led to a series of deals with some of the leading business leaders in the world. A close link has been formed between DAMAC owner Hussain Sajwani and U.S. President Donald Trump’s real estate organization over recent years that has resulted in deals being struck for more than $2 billion between the two companies. The role of Hussain Sajwani and his DAMAC company within the Trump Organization has become important enough for the Dubai based business leader to be invited to the 2016 New Year’s Eve party of the then President Elect and be name checked by him during his speech at the event.
DAMAC and Hussain Sajwani have become major parts of the charitable work being completed in Dubai and the United Arab Emirates; among the good causes the owner of the DAMAC group has become a major part of is the annual Ramadan charitable drive to provide clothing and the basic necessities of life to children from low-income families in the region. Over $2 million was donated to the cause by DAMAC and Hussain Sajwani and provided clothing and warmth to more than 50,000 children across the UAE.
