A Success Story of a Great Businessman
Businesses normally face challenges, which are not an issue for Hussain al Nowais, the managing director and chairman of the famous Emirates Holdings, known for making dying companies live again and even succeed. A lot of people are wondering how this UAE businessman succeeded so much in his career.
According to Hussain al Nowais, he was born in the time when life was so hard, which made him push his limits.
Hussain al Nowais shared that back in the days, they saw the sacrifices 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.This did not only happen to him but to many people before, considering as a norm.
When Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan became president of UAE, a lot of families have returned, including the family of Al Nowais. Their progress as a family started with Al Nowais’ grandfather who from a pearl merchant became a trader for foodtsuffs and materials. Their family managed to become a trade organisation after that.
Al Nowais continued schooling in the United States of America after finishing high school in his beloved place, Abu Dhabi.
After finishing a business administration course in the U.S., he was totally filled with wisdom and might, which gave him the courage to go back home in order to practice what he has learned. 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.
He was indeed very passionate about what he is doing in his life, which is why there is no doubt why he uplifted their family business into a trusted contracting, distributing, trading, and manufacturing company. According to him, he almost started from nothing in order to build what he has now.
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.
The reason why Al Nowais is successful in his career is that he improved his knowledge and skills regularly.
Even the beginning of Gulf War was seen by Al Nowais as a chance to begin a food business, because of its necessity. His brilliance even made him acquire some businesses that are dying, wherein he restructured them and made them earn a lot once 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.
