Feeley finalist for managing partner of the year

Mark Feeley, managing partner of Texas Roadhouse in Newnan, has been named a finalist for the company’s highest honor, Texas Roadhouse managing partner of the year.

Feeley and 19 other managers were chosen from a pool of more than 400.

“These 20 managing partners are all on top of their game and knocked it out of the park in 2013,” said Kent Taylor, founder and CEO of Texas Roadhouse. The finalists have “taken results to new levels by excelling at our mission of 'Legendary Food and Legendary Service,' exceeding operational goals, caring for their people, taking care of their guests, being a true partner in their communities and standing out in sales growth and financial results,” Taylor said. "I know their futures will include many more great things to come.”

The award recognizes the managing partner who best displays the characteristics of an operational leader. Finalists are judged on seven criteria: Legendary Food, Legendary Service, Legendary Marketing, Legendary Culture, Legendary People, Legendary Profits and Legendary Pride and Passion.

The winner will be announced at the company’s annual conference in late April.

Feeley has been with Texas Roadhouse for nearly 10 years, and has been the managing partner of the Newnan location for that entire time.

Stephens earns certification in obesity medecine

Dr. LaToya B. Stephens of Ciao Bella Medical Center and Spa recently passed the American Board of Obesity Medicine certification exam for obesity medicine physicians.

Physicians certified in obesity medicine are able to positively impact all systems of the body by incorporating weight management into traditional models of medical practice, Stephens said. Specifically, this subspecialty requires competency in and a thorough understanding of the treatment of obesity and the genetic, biologic, environmental, social and behavioral factors that contribute to obesity. A health care program supervised by a physician certified in obesity medicine offers a comprehensive approach to maximizing overall health and reversing obesity-related co-morbidities.

“In our own state, the prevalence of adult obesity is 29.1 percent.” said Stephens. “I am interested in being part of the solution to this medical epidemic by helping patients affected by obesity who seek access to safe evidence-based medical treatment options.”

Stephens is also a board certified fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecologists and is a member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians.
