A restaurateur-turned-businessman with true entrepreneurial flair, Managing Director of the Atlantic Group [v], Hatem Saleh?s drive to succeed was evident even during his teenage years.

Hatem soon went into his business venture opening a seafood restaurant called Atlantic in St Kilda.

At around about the same time Hatem noticed there was a gap in the market for event spaces catering for 500+ people. With the then derelict Shed 7 becoming available at South Wharf, Atlantic (the event space) was born in 1999 followed by Sumac (a smaller intimate event space) and Alumbra (a waterside bar and nightclub) in Shed 6 2002.

In July 2006, the State Government announced plans to redevelop South Wharf. At the same time, Hatem's Atlantic Group won a highly competitive tender to redevelop Central Pier and as such the Atlantic Group [v] relocated existing businesses Atlantic, Sumac and Alumbra plus introduced Peninsula and Sketch as new venues.

In 2008 Hatem was a finalist in the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year awards. Since Atlantic Group [v] won 9 prestigious awards- the City of Melbourne's Melbourne Awards, Restaurant and Catering Associations' Best Overall National Caterer and Telstra's State and National Business awards.

Today Hatem?s entrepreneurial vision has seen Atlantic Group [v] extend its brand, launching an outside catering arm Atlantic On Site plus has successfully developed a new restaurant brand- The Atlantic- which will see the company?s return to the superlative restaurant game when the seafood restaurant opens at Crown Entertainment precinct in January 2011.
