Hussein Sajwani and Damac

Hussain Sajwani is a man from the United Arab Emirates. He attended college at the University of Washington, though he went back to his native country and eventually started a successful career in business. He established a successful catering company in the 1980s. However, reaching for the stars, he dove into the real estate industry. During the mid 1990s, he “dabbled” in real estate around the United Arab Emirates in various places, including Dubai. It wasn’t until 2002 that he went full throttle into luxury private real estate development in Dubai. In 2002, he established Damac. Through Damac, he developed luxury properties on undeveloped lands in Dubai, and sold many units—sometimes before buildings were even built. Damac played a large role in turning Dubai into the high end, glistening diamond of a place that it has become. Damac is currently the hugest luxury private real estate developer in the Middle East.


The Hussain Sajwani family has had some contact with Donald Trump’s family over the years. In 2013, a deal was made between Donald Trump and Hussain Sajwani to build luxury golf courses in Dubai. Now, Trump has become president of the United States and the tides have changed. In order to show virtue as the president and to show ethical professional practices, Trump is no longer having serious business meetings with Hussain Sajwani. The Trump family is only associating with the Sajwani family in a very social, informal way. The families are currently friends with each other on a more personal level.



Through all of his successes, the Damac owner took the opportunity to give back to humankind. He donated 2 million dollars to help clothe children around the world. In 2013, he donated to help the The Ramadan Initiative, an initiative started by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed to improve the lives of people all around the planet.
