Hussain Sajwani Develops His Career In A Variety Of Ways

The DAMAC owner, Hussain Sajwani is now known as one of the world’s leading luxury real estate developers with business partners including U.S. President Donald Trump and Bugatti autos brand. Despite his current success, Hussain Sajwani was not handed his success but had to fight and scrape to achieve his dreams. The University of Washington graduate has spent most of his life and career taking calculated risks regarding how his business career should move forward.

The entrepreneurial spirit has been strong in Hussain Sajwani since his childhood when he worked alongside his father in the family’s watch and clock store. Upon graduating from school, the academic success achieved by the future luxury real estate developer resulted in him being awarded a scholarship to attend the University of Washington in the U.S.

Completing a degree in electronic engineering led to a role in the contracts division of GASCO, a division of the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company. GASCO led to the DAMAC owner identifying his first area of entrepreneurial interest when he identified a gap in the market for catering services throughout the oil fields of the Middle East. The catering services grew from a small outfit at a rapid rate to allow the company to grow into one of the largest in the catering services sector with clients including the U.S. military and many oil and gas companies in the Middle East and Africa.

DAMAC owner Hussain Sajwani saw the policies of the government of Dubai changing towards foreign ownership of land and property. Sajwani built his luxury real estate business by buying up parcels of land in parts of Dubai many developers would not touch. The developments created by Hussain Sajwani have remained a success throughout his career and began with the sale of every unit in his first tower being sold in just 40 days. Since then, the DAMAC owner has been determined to maintain his position as a top luxury real estate developer with a personal fortune estimated at $4.1 billion by Forbes.

Learning From Igor Cornelsen’s Experience

Igor Cornelsen has made waves in the investment industry ever since he began his career in the early ’70s. Igor is an investment banker with years of expertise in managing stock. Igor Cornelsen is from Brazil where he was born and studied at the Federal University. He studied engineering at the institution, but after two years of taking his course, he found it more demanding and a lot of work. He decided to major in economics after the second year and finally completed his studies in 1970. Igor Cornelsen immediately began working at a bank, and this was something normal for engineering graduates. This was because they had the necessary computing skills that were required in banking and there was not any advanced technology to accomplish such tasks.

Igor Corneslen worked for four years as an investment banker before finally getting a promotion at the Multibanco bank as one of the members on its Board of Directors. Later on, in 1976 he was promoted at the bank to the position of a Chief Executive Officer. Multibanco was purchased in 1978 by the Bank of America, and this cut Igor’s career at the bank short. Unibanco was another bank that was famously known in investment banking at this time, and Igor joined it after leaving Multibanco. However, he was not able to do much here because the inflation rates of the bank went up and he had to leave. Igor Cornelsen was lucky to find a new opportunity at the Libra bank PLC because they paid in dollars. He worked here for several years and became very successful. After succeeding, Igor and some of his associates left the bank and joined the Standard Merchant Bank. Igor Cornelsen was on the Board of directors at this bank, but he later on left and started his firm.

Before this, the company went public, giving Mr. Edens a share worth $2.3 billion dollars. Visit Patch.com to know more.

Waiakea Water Tackles the Bottle Water Problem

Bottled water may be a better choice for drinking but is not a friend of the ocean. The biggest problem currently being experienced in the bottled water world is the pollution being caused by it. Plastic takes about 1000 years to biodegrade. That is a long time. There are countries on earth that are not even that old. Long after the human race moves to Mars there will still be plastic water bottles floating in the ocean. Many plans have been put in place to reduce this, but the fact remains that many water drinkers just chuck the bottle into the drink. This is a problem for coastal places as they have an actual drink to toss bottles into, that does not mean that the rest of the world I not effected. Landfills are full of discarded plastic bottles. For this purpose, the environmental conservation of a bottled water company is starting to become a key seller.

 

It may sound horrible but bottled water sells through three major points. It is healthy, it is sourced from an exotic spot, and they take care of the environment. In the case of Hawaii native Waiakea water the conservation aspect is about to turn revolutionary. The company, started back in 2012 by Ryan Emmons, already sources from a sustainable aquifer. The factory also runs on clean energy. This year however, they are unveiling something big. A fully biodegradable bottle that will completely break down in fifteen years. This means that most people under 70 today will still be alive after Waiakea bottles break down. This is a huge benefit for bottle water in general. If the bottle works other companies will design their own and a big victory will be won for bottle water.

 

Waiakea also sports the other two selling aspects as well. It is sourced from underneath a volcano which means it is Hawaiian volcanic water. This is a statement that sounds cool to say. It is also 100% alkaline which makes it the healthiest water available. Waiakea pH is the best naturally occurring balance around. This certainly makes Waiakea water stand out.
