If there is one that that Damac owner Hussain Sajwani understands, it is his roots. He is proud of the many contributions he has been able to offer to society, and he knows that if only people knew of it all they might actually be surprised. One of Hussain Sajwani’s most prized possessions isn’t one of his glitzy property developments or his seemingly endless bank account, but it was a plaque given to him for recognition of his food service preparation for his work during the Desert Storm war during the early 1990’s. Besides reminding him of his philanthropic endeavors, it also reminds Sajwani of his diplomatic abilities throughout the global markets.
This early experience has always served to be an important example to him of work ethic instilled in him from his family. He realized that hard work wasn’t just limited to his locale, because he worked with people all over the world to make all of their goals come to fruition.
Hussain Sajwani is not only proud of his early heritage, but he is again putting his skills to work in another important business deal. The same skills he learned in the food business are the ones he uses to continue to make his mark in UAE Real Estate. Besides what he learned there, he has also learned that timing is everything. He knows when he should take advantage of the current property market in order to fully exploit a solid return on his investment.
Indeed, times are currently very busy for Hussain Sajwani, because he is also considering whether DAMAC should be involved in an initial public offering (IPO) of stocks with the London Stock Exchange as one of the possible venues. Sajwani has always realized that you get out what you put in, and because of his skills and tenacity the Hussain Sajwani family will continue to be a mover-and-a-shaker in the property development markets for many years to come.
