Our Team

Max Khaghan | CEO

MAX KHAGHAN began his love affair with the hospitality business as a young cabana boy at a beachside resort, where he saw firsthand the unmatched joy that a great hotel can bring to all kinds of people. But he wasn’t content working for someone else’s vision, so as an early Airbnb pioneer, he created and managed a string of highly profitable, Brooklyn-chic apartment stays that attracted guests from across the globe.

In this first venture, he refined his eye for detail and grew a passion for designing intentional spaces that give guests experiences to remember. With the success generated from this vision-forward approach, Max’s ambitions grew as he sought out entire hotels and properties to transform into one-of-a-kind destinations.

From New York to Miami to Colorado to Mexico, Max’s creativity and passion have fueled his big-picture mission to make a company that changes the face of the industry.
