Philanthropy And Real Estate Are Central To The Career Of Hussain Sajwani

February 14, 2018

The global real estate mogul, Hussain Sajwani is now one of the best-known developers in the world with a reputation to rival that of U.S. President Donald Trump who is now a business partner of the United Arab Emirates-based business leader. Throughout his career, the former oil and gas industry executive has sought to push forward his business choices for the good of the nation and to work in a way which he feels will benefit those less fortunate in his local community.


Philanthropy and support of many community-based initiatives in the UAE and beyond have become central to the work of the University of Washington graduate who has worked his way through the food services industry to hospitality and now luxury real estate. In terms of philanthropy, Sajwani now operates his own DAMAC Foundation which provides a successful link between the DAMAC owner and the work being completed annually by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum who has made it his personal mission to build a much happier and successful society within the UAE.


One of the initiatives created by the UAE Royal Family which has been supported by DAMAC and Hussain Sajwani is the development of the One Million Arab Coders program aimed at introducing a high-level of technological success for the local community. This educational initiative provides training and courses in various aspects of coding and data management for young people in the UAE.


In terms of the business side of the career of Hussain Sajwani, the founder of DAMAC made his initial success as an entrepreneur in the food services industry while also working in the finance department of GASCO. However, it is the luxury real estate sector which has been the dominant area for the Hussain Sajwani family who now employs more than 2,000 people across the globe with offices far from their headquarters in Dubai. A London office has already opened and the planned 44,000 luxury units DAMAC Properties have in the works will continue to build the success of the group long into the future.
