Hussain Sajwani Finds Success & Humility Go Hand in Hand

Hussain Sajwani, the well-known and sometimes boisterous and publicity grabbing, head of Damac Group is a man who takes a great deal of pride in his accomplishments, but is also wise enough to remember his humble beginnings. While most of those in the UAE, especially in Dubai would closely associate Sajwani and his company Damac with the glitzy high-rise developments that are at the heart of the city’s skyline, or with the golf course projects that he has so famously developed in conjunction with billionaire global real estate tycoon, and current President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, he is actually a man who still relishes his roots and find ways to constantly stay grounded to them.


In fact, at the heart of his Majlis, an unexpectedly spartan space to begin with, Hussain Sajwani offers pride of place not to a model of one of his great buildings, or photos of his rich and powerful associates such as trump, but instead to a simple plaque that was presented to him by the United States Army during Operation Dessert Strom commemorating excellence in food service operations carried out by Hussain Sajwani’s firm during the conflict. It was from these less than audacious beginnings that Sajwani, Damac owner and Chairman, built one of the most revered and successful real estate development companies in not only the middle east, but the entire world. Of course, there is much more to Damac than its real estate division, and even to this day its food service operation is still an important part of its global holdings and operations package.


As a man of means, and one of deep personal convictions, he also believes that he has an inherent moral obligation to give back to the less fortunate and to help build a better world. As such he Hussain Sajwani has worked with several philanthropic organizations over the years, and most recently gave a cheque for AED 2M to a charity that helps to provide clothing to a million deprived children throughout the world. The single donation given by Damac Properties, a division of the Damac Group, will provide resources to clothe more than 50,000 needy children.


The whole of the Hussain Sajwani family involved in a variety of activities that not only build a better economic future for the company, and the country, but also a better world for everyone to live in. He is a shining example of how a man who has principles can make a difference and share the fruits of his success to stay humble.
