Born in 1956 in Dubai, Hussain Sajwani is an accomplished United Arab Emirates businessman who has established himself through his education in the United States and as the head of the successful company DAMAC. While there tends to be a large amount of wealth individuals in the United Arab Emirates, Sajwani is an actual chairman of the UAE, making him one of the most influential and important figures in the Mideast.
Sajwani’s Education Abroad
One of the things that make Hussain Sajwani so unique, is his absolute desire to understand western capitalism. In his pursuit of success and education, Sajwani obtained his bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Washington. It was there that he would take the information he would have needed to apply back home where he would find massive success as a business man. Hussain’s success has helped him to bring back ideas of the west to Dubai in order to develop a culturally global aesthetic that is appealing to both locals and international businessmen.
In 2002, Sajwani would find the legendary real estate developer Damac Properties in which would go on to become one of the leading real estate developers in Dubai. Hussain’s time with Damac has allowed him to become one of the richest men in the country at an estimated net worth of 4 billion dollars. Sajwani continues to push himself to develop and form relationships with leading property developers in order to help lead the charge of Dubai in the real estate market in 2017.
The Trump Deal
In January of 2017, Hussain Sajwani announced he was indeed looking forward to striking more deals with Donald Trump. Having previously worked together to build in Dubai, Hussain is hoping to strike a deal with the now President of the United States in order to develop and create a stronger connection between the United States and the United Arab Emirate. In a time of conflict among the Mideast and the United States Sajwani’s deals aim to create a sense of resolution that surrounds itself and builds itself upon the friendly nature between Sajwani and Donald Trump.
