When the UAE leadership decided to open the Middle East real estate market to the world, Hussain Sajwani jumped in and founded DAMAC properties. His decision proved to be a profitable move as the UAE experienced a boom in real estate, and Dubai became the central attraction. The DAMAC owner would, as a result, become a billionaire, and since then, the music of success has never stopped.
