Hussain Sajwani is used to hearing people call him a born-entrepreneur right from childhood. Although he was not born into a wealthy family, he kept fine-tuning his skills. His father operated a watch shop where Hussain often resort to, not to catch fun, but to render some assistance. He took delight in western education and only called it quit after picking a B.Sc. in Economic and Industrial Engineering from the University of Washington.
Sajwani knew his potentials and was eager to show-case them. Instead of spending lengthy period working for other people, he opted to set up his own company starting with a catering venture.

However, he spent some time working as Contracts Manager with GASCO, a firm owned by the Abu Dhabi National Oil. From obscurity, the catering venture turned out to be a monumental success serving beyond 150,000 meals everyday and prosecuting hundreds of projects simultaneously across the Middle East and beyond.
Hussain Sajwani showed he was not a man that can only excel in a single industry by setting up a property development firm called DAMAC Properties. The same phenomenal growth rate he recorded with his catering venture repeated itself in DAMAC. The success story of DAMAC was even better. Within few years, DAMAC became the largest property development company in the entire Middle East.
The company has projects executed in most Middle East cities and beyond including cities in the United States and Britain. Clients prefer doing business with DAMAC because the company always delivers quality. Read more: DAMAC Chairman Relishes His Roots | The National

The Hussain Sajwani family is also the proud owner of DICO Investment, Al Jazeira, Al Amana Building Materials and Al Anwar Ceramic Tiles Co.
