After graduating with degrees in both economics and industrial engineering, he went to work in the finance department of a large company processing payments. While he did not love the work, it helped him to understand the inner workings of the service industry. According to, using the money he earned selling timeshares while in college, he started a catering company which provided meals for large companies and government employees. This company is still in business today.

His interest in that field grew as he expanded his empire to small hotels and eventually formed DAMAC Properties, a property investment firm specializing in developing thousands of high-end properties throughout the Middle East and London.

The business landscape is constantly changing and moving forward and Hussain likes to know all he can about new trends such as digital and social media marketing.
