Eventually, with some careful management and fiscal finesse, Sajwani was able to expand the company into a formidable market force that expanded impressively from the the Middle East all across Africa and The Commonwealth of Independent States of the former Soviet Republics (CIS).

With the resources, networks, know-how, contacts and infrastructure Sajwani had garnered from his time working catering, he created a new company in 2002, DAMAC Properties, a high end property and development firm. The inspiration for the company came from a new and rapidly growing and highly underutilized and played to market sector of foreigner residents. Learn more about Hussain Sajwani Family:
