Amira Sajwani, the daughter of UAE tycoon and businessman Hussain Sajwani had a great celebration just a few weeks ago when she got married and had some of the finest foods served at the dinner and some of the most esteemed guests in attendance. Among those in attendance were members of the US’s first family including Donald Trump Jr’s family and his brother Eric’s family. The president, first lady and Ivanka did not make it, but still the Hussain Sajwani family was honored to have the two first sons there. Along with the celebrations and socializing at the wedding party, the Sajwanis and Trumps paid a visit to the Trump International Golf Club on its one-year anniversary and also took a look at the progress of the Trump World Resort.
Hussain Sajwani’s partnership with the Trump organization goes back a few years, but his DAMAC Properties portfolio goes way beyond the years he’s known President Trump. His first job after graduating from the University of Washington was directing contracts for Abu Dhabi’s National Oil Company. Sajwani then founded a catering company that served hotel chains and even the US military during the Gulf War. He started buying other companies like Al Anwar Ceramic Tiles and Al Amana Building Supplies along with his private equity investments, and the revenue generated from that eventually led to the buyout of smaller hotels and eventually forming DAMAC.
Hussain Sajwani has made sure DAMAC Properties stays cash efficient and eliminates operating debt. The first property they built was an oceanside freehold housing lot known as Marina Terrace. But the first extraordinarily high luxury unit was DAMAC Tower which had designs inside done by the Versace and Bugatti companies. The Roberto Cavalli Group has also done several of his properties including DAMAC Hills around the Trump International Golf Club. The most magnificent project Sajwani has been bringing to completion is the DAMAC Maison in the middle of AYKON City by the Dubai Canal. Sajwani’s magnificent buildings and real estate acumen have won him many awards over the years such as Arabia’s Top CEO and his most recent “Real Estate Legend” award.
