The company’s founder and director Hussain Ali Habib Sajwani has a close working and social relationship with the president elect. Hussain Sajwani’s family is close with that of Trump and they seem to spend a considerable time together. DAMAC Properties is in close business relationship with Trump’s business, The Trump Organization. Together they have built The Trump International Golf Club in Dubai. Hussain Sajwani has worked at various capacities and has been director or chairman of various companies but his major accomplishment began in catering business and later invested in the construction & development industry.
DAMAC Properties was founded in 2002 with its headquarters in Dubai in United Arab Emirates. The company specializes in the construction of real estate, commercial, residential and leisure properties in Dubai and other areas of The Middle East. The company was built out of the motivation by the increase in profits from the hotels that Hussain Sajwani built in Deira because of the collapse of the Soviet Union. The hotel construction was a big deviation from the type of business that he was accustomed to. In the 1880s he carried out catering businesses and even helped to serve Americans in the Gulf, Bosnia and Somalia. He was internationally recognized in 1991 for his catering service to the American Military who were fighting the Iraq war.
Since the establishment of DAMAC Properties in 2002, the company has gained very influential allies and business associates such a Donald Trump. The company has worked closely with well recognized companies such as The Trump Organization; a real estate development service provider founded in 1980 and situated in New York. The company also carries out business with Drake & Scull International LLC an architecture and engineering business established in Dubai in 1966. It also works closely with LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton SE established in Paris in 1991 that deals in manufacture, sale and distribution of luxury goods such as wines, shoes and accessories. Hussain Sajwani is a big giver to the society in the United Arab Emirates especially to the welfare movements that support the refugees in the Arabic countries such as UAECompassion.
