Hussain Sajwani is currently the DAMAC owner as well as one of the richest Arabs in the world but he didn’t start out that way. So how has he managed to become so affluent and successful in his career? He recently agreed to an interview Arabian business to discuss how he achieved such widespread success and how he runs his company. He was born in the early 50’s to a father who owned a haberdashery and realized his knack for entrepreneurship at an early age. He then managed to obtain an academic scholarship to study in the United States and graduated in 1981 from a public research university in Seattle with a Bachelor of Arts in Finance and Industries. He began his career in the early 80’s when he started working at one of the local gas industries in Abu Dhabi.
Over the years, he managed to obtain a significant amount of wealth until, finally, Hussain Sajwani became the DAMAC owner as well as founder and CEO in 2002. He finds the continued economic growth throughout the Asian nations to be rather intriguing. He also takes pride in having his company be a staple of diversity with over 77 different nationalities represented within their corporation. He mentioned that no one person in the company is integral to the success of the company but, rather, it’s a team effort. Additionally, as per eremnews.com, as the DAMAC owner, Hussain Sajwani believes social media is one of the most efficient ways of networking and, thus, he and the company use it to further their own success.
One of the things he enjoys most about working for this company is seeing one of their ideas go from the concept stage to the completion stage. He finds it quite gratifying to be able to stand back and admire his own handiwork. He found that going public with DAMAC was one of the hardest choices he had to make because it opened them up to scrutiny from the government. When asked whether he values education or experience more, he says that he views the two as equal so they’re both valuable.
