Aman has made two key appointments ahead of the spring opening of its Aman New York hotel, naming Rudy Tauscher as managing director and Petar Krstic as hotel manager of the property.
A 30-year hospitality veteran, Tauscher comes to Aman from the Four Seasons Hotel New York, where he served as general manager. Prior to that, he oversaw the opening of Mandarin Oriental New York, serving as the property's area vice president and general manager for a decade. Tauscher has also previously held general manager and hotel manager roles with the Sofitel New York, Trump International Hotel and Tower New York and the Peninsula Hotel New York.

Krstic, who has been with Aman since 2017, joins the Aman New York team after serving as resort manager for the brand's Amanpuri property in Thailand. He has previously held leadership roles at other Aman resorts, including that of executive assistant manager at the Amanjena in Morocco and general manager of the Amangalla in Sri Lanka.
Located within midtown Manhattan's Crown Building on the corner of Fifth Avenue and 57th Street, the 83-room Aman New York will feature three dining venues, an Aman Spa, a jazz club and the brand's first urban residences.
