Success in Business through Perseverance
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. 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, they are already enjoying the good things that they have earned.
He shared that back in the 1950s, drinking purified drinking water is already a kind of luxury while having an air conditioner for a room is just unthinkable. Abu Dhabi, as Hussain al Nowais described, can be compared to a village with no people. He also mentioned that his family once lives in the area of Corniche, wherein Al Husn was the town’s centre.
Since the education in Abu Dhabi before was not that high, Al Nowais traveled to Qatar to be able to get into a school.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. 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 went to the U.S. to study after he got his high school diploma from a school in Abu Dhabi.
He has shown great strength and optimism after graduating with a business administration degree in the U.S. by going back to UAE in order to practice his skills. It is so impressive who Al Nowais has lifted his credibility so high, making him succeed even in his early 20’s, wherein he was able to deal with big names in the business world.
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 recalled how we build everything almost from nothing.
One of the biggest events in his career that made their business grew more and more was when he was able to have a contract for a certain government department in supplying electrical equipment.
He earned his success through acquiring skills and knowledge and continuously improving them along the way.
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.
