Co-owner of the Gansevoort Hotel Group, and successful businessman, Arik Kislin, was honored last week by the New York State Police Chiefs Benevolent Association.
Mr. Kislin has been an active supporter of the association for many years, and was recognized for both his service to community and business success. He was honored alongside Howard Lorber of Douglas Elliman, as well as many others.
“I am humbled by this honor, and feel that the real recognition should go to all of the amazing police chiefs who keep our towns, villages, cities and state safe every day.” Mr. Kislin continued: “To be honored along side these individuals and our amazing service members makes this even more special to me.”
In addition to the Gansevoort Hotels, Mr. Kislin owns Jet Flite International, Alerion Aviation, and many other ventures. Mr. Kislin is involved in many New York-based and international charities and lends a hand whenever possible.
He is the perfect example of a successful businessman who has good family values and a desire to constantly give back. Mr. Kislin said: “Success is important, and it drives me, but that has to be paired with giving back and doing good things for our community and the world.”
“This honor meant a lot to me, and I look forward to continue working with the NYS Police Chiefs in bettering our communities and keeping them safe.”
