Atlas Welcomes Geno Dew as General Manager

Atlas is pleased to welcome Geno Dew as General Manager. The acclaimed Atlanta restaurant is located in the heart of Buckhead at The St. Regis Atlanta.  Offering a wealth of experience, Dew most recently served as General Manager of STK in Atlanta and has a rich history working within the hospitality industry. During his tenure with Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants, Dew led teams for award-winning restaurants in Atlanta, Washington DC and Miami, as well as opening Enoteca Carbonari and Spice Market by Jean Georges.  

“Being able to lead the Atlas team is a dream come true, tailor-made for me with everything in life that I love and am passionate about,” says Dew. “Our guests delight in the cornerstones of what makes the Atlas experience so special - you see the work of Masters not only on the walls, but also on the plate and in the glass.”

Gigi Hadid Joins Forces with Reebok to Tell Next Phase of Be More Human Campaign

Gigi Hadid, style icon, fitness advocate and trendsetter, joins Reebok’s community of inspiring women as the newest face of the brand’s #PerfectNever movement; a powerful and inspirational call to action that asks women around the world to celebrate the beauty of imperfection and champions Reebok’s intrinsic message of self-betterment.

Together, Gigi and Reebok will challenge women to use physical fitness as an escape to drown out all of the negativity that surrounds them by deploying the three-point principles of the Reebok delta that puts forth the social, physical and mental benefits of fitness.

As an international supermodel Hadid is no stranger to the pressures of perfection placed on women, living under the constant scrutiny of a global audience of critics.  It is through fitness that Hadid has found her tranquility. “Working out isn’t only physical for me. It’s mental. It helps me escape the noise in my head. It’s the only time my mind goes quiet.” shares Hadid.  “When I was a competitive athlete, I used to be so focused on being perfect that my coaches would take me out of competing all together.  I’d focus on my mistakes which would breed more missteps - a domino effect. Until I learned to change the channel, to re-focus, re-set. It was my mistakes, my imperfections that motivated me most.”

Learning to “change the channel” and take control, Hadid discovered that it was in fact these failures and setbacks that helped her improve – accepting them and using them as motivation to better herself. Hadid will now work with Reebok to motivate women to accept their own setbacks and imperfections by embracing their inner strength, grit and determination.

Praising Gigi’s influence on women and women’s fashion in particular, Corinna Werkle, General Manager of the Training Business Unit at Reebok states, “Gigi is setting the standards of modern style across the world; her ability to fuse fashion and fitness together inspires people globally. The fashion icon constantly pushes the boundaries by not being afraid to take risks and be different. Working with Reebok, Gigi will empower women by challenging them to express themselves to the fullest through bold, fearless style and to be confident enough to embrace their uniqueness.”

Reebok’s partnership with Hadid marks the second phase in the #PerfectNever movement’s chapter. July 2016 marked its debut, led by a powerful campaign video featuring athlete Ronda Rousey.  The poignant video captured Rousey at her most raw and real, as she shattered the illusions of perfection and empowered women to be the best version of themselves through embracing and learning from their imperfections. Gigi and Reebok will work together in 2016 and beyond to further champion this message.
