The billionaire entrepreneur, caring philanthropist, and astute businessman Hussain Sajwani has been a gift to the world since he was born. As a youngster, he worked with his father in his father’s watch and pen store and learned the lessons of hard work, ambition, and drive while there. While his father had hopes that he would take over the family business, Hussain knew he was destined for greater things. After he received his Bachelor’s degree in engineering and economics, Hussain went on to become the Contracts Manager for GASCO, which is a subsidiary of ADNOC (Abu Dhabi National Oil Company). This only lasted for a short time, because Hussain was ready to move onto what would start his meteoric rise to success; a catering business that is still an industry leader to this day that serves 150,000 meals, daily, to people in Africa, the Middle East, and CIS.
As CEO and chairman founder of the DAMAC Group, Hussain Sajwani has enjoyed working with a variety of well-known people, and one of them is Donald Trump. DAMAC’s luxurious golf courses are centered around the finest gold courses in the world, and these courses are managed maintained by The Trump Organization. To celebrate the opening of the Trump International Golf Club Dubai at DAMAC Hills, Hussain had Eric Trump and Donald Trump jr. as his guests. Eric Trump stated, “We are very proud of our collaboration with DAMAC Properties and look forward to bringing a new level of challenge and luxury to Dubai at this truly spectacular property.” Hussain Sajwani and Donald Trump plan on continuing to do business together into the future.
As a philanthropist, the DAMAC owner has helped countless amounts of refugees and children. He donated $272,000 to the “Yemen We Care” campaign, which provides basic education, healthcare, and relief to millions of Yemenis. He also donated his time and money to the Emirates Red Crescent organization, which helps to clothe and shelter poverty-stricken children. Hussain believes that no cause is too small, and has committed himself to continuing to do everything in his power to help people who suffer throughout the world.
