Sam’s Family & Interests:

Sam Saab grew up in a small and intimate village in Lebanon where everyone knew each other.  One key advantage that this village culture represents is that you learn quickly that you’re not judged by how much money you accumulate but by how good you are to your family, neighbors and community.  This upbringing explains Sam’s continuous pursuit to do what is right for his family, staff and clients.

At the tender age of 13, Sam started street-racing on the narrow mountain roads of Lebanon. The secret to success was to never hesitate to push as hard as possible to win… but to also never wreck his dad’s car (with their very modest means, at the time, he knew they could not afford to replace it.) Learning to recognize the very thin line between “aggressive” and “reckless” behavior has influenced Sam’s approach to business growth.

Sam lived four years of the Lebanese civil war before he immigrated to the U.S., in late 1979, to attend San Francisco State University and pursue his Electro-Mechanical Engineering degree.  He put himself through college full-time, by starting his own delivery service company as well as working two part-time jobs in the evenings and weekends.  Sam graduated in 1984 with a GPA of 3+ and no student loans.

Sam currently resides in Virginia with his wife and their two children. Though Sam is an admitted workaholic (and starts his business day at 4:00am, 7-days a week), he always finds time to spend with his family.  Like his Dad, Sam likes to fix things and get the kids involved in “house projects”.  He enjoys spending time with his daughter Dina (currently in her first year at Oakton High School), his son Sami (currently in his final year of studies at George Mason University) and and having date-night with his wife Mayya every Saturday as well as pursuing his passion for car racing.
