Dr. Ahmed Y. Al-Hussein
Ahmed Y. Al-Hussein was awarded his Doctor of Medicine Degree from the University of Kiel, in Kiel, Germany in 1989. From graduation until mid-1995, Dr. Ahmed was occupied in the specialty of pediatric medicine at the University Hospital of Kiel, Germany area while simultaneously exploring a budding interest in the business. In 1995, Dr. Ahmed discontinued his medical career and engaged full time in a partnership where he established a multi-branch business in Germany. In 1998, he sold his business interests in Germany and moved to the U.S. where he joined Husain Y. Al-Hussain in forming Pillars Development Group’s Diamond Properties high-rise construction brand.
As a co-founder of Pillars Development Group, Dr. Ahmed manages Pillar’s business development. Furthermore, he manages legal affairs, including acquisition contracts, settlements, and operating agreements. Through his extensive interaction with landowners during acquisition efforts, Dr. Ahmed has built a wide and reliable network of owners brokers with whom he in continuous contact for up to the minute site acquisition information.
Dr. Ahmed has managed the contracting and feasibility study / due diligence phases of more than 2000 residential lots and sites in the Washington Metropolitan area for Pillars branded companies. Disposition of these sites was often to Diamond Properties itself, or to another of Pillars Development Groups’ operational brand names, Edgemoore Homes or Basheer & Edgemoore. In other cases, Edgemoore or Diamond developed the sites for sale to 3rd party builders as ‘finished lots’ with all entitlement, planning, engineering, and development work in place.
The third-party builder lot sales area of Pillars’ business continues in operation today, with the most recent and current project being Marbury, in Loudon County, VA, where Pillars is delivering finished lots to NV Homes, a public stock homebuilder with significant operations in suburban Washington and mid-Atlantic markets. Dr. Ahmed has found that his ability to maintain his network of potential sellers and brokers continues to lead Pillars to lucrative and well-located properties to be studied for potential acquisition and development.
