Making Money Rain for Your Business

Hussain al Nowais, the Emirates Holdings managing director and chairman, enjoys taking challenges, such as making dying companies live and soar high in the world of business. It will be such an honor to know the success story behind this amazing UAE Businessman.

Hussain al Nowais grew up facing so many trials, which molded him to become the man that he is right now.

When Hussain al Nowais was still young, he and his siblings saw the struggles of their parents. And now that their lives have already improved, it is evident how much they earned through their sacrifices.

It is quite unthinkable to have air conditioner before or even drink purified water in the 1950s, according to him. Abu Dhabi looked like a village with no citizens, as Hussain al Nowais described it before. Years ago, their family stayed in an area of Corniche, and the town’s centre was Al Husn.

Hussain al Nowais was sent to Qatar to study since Abu Dhabi’s schooling was insufficient.There was a norm before that people leave Abu Dhabi and go to Saudi Arabia or Qatar to get out from a difficult kind of life.

Many families, which included the family of Al Nowais, decided to come back to Abu Dhabi when Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan became the president. When they came back, their family was blessed after Al Nowai’s grandfather became a foodstuff and material trader instead of remaining from his past job as a pearl merchant. Their family managed to become a trade organisation after that.

When Al Nowais completed his high school in a school in Abu Dhabi, he then went to the U.S. in order to resume his education.

He finished a business administration degree in the United States of America and then practices it right away in the UAE, wherein his heart and soul were filled with optimism and bright ideas. In 1978, Al Nowais was known to be one out of few who was able to study outside UAE and was able to successfully communicate with businessmen from different countries.

With his outstanding capabilities as a leader, he has successfully made their business fly, which finally became a famous distributing, manufacturing, trading, and contracting company. He even remembered how he made everything possible by starting from scratch.

When his career was still on the state of growing, he was given a chance to supply equipment for electrical use for a department in the government.

By improving his acquired skills and knowledge, he became successful in his chosen career.

During the Gulf War, Al Nowais saw their food business as something that would succeed because it is needed. By acquiring businesses that are already failing, he found ways to restructure and make them rise again.

In this very moment, he is still sharing his knowledge to many and earning more money, especially that Federal Foods is under his name.
