The Sandy Springs Garden Club, fresh from celebrating their 75th anniversary, is busy as ever landscaping the beautiful Williams-Payne house and improving the grounds at local libraries and schools. This group of garden lovers gathers each month for fun events and to help green up the community. SandySpringsGardenClub.com Prepare Your Garden for Winter: 1. Remove debris from diseased plants and place fresh mulch. 2. Improve soil by adding compost to the base of plants. 3. Add daffodil bulbs around the garden (they repel deer, rabbits and rodents). Mark the area with a golf tee to avoid digging and damaging the bulbs. Find supplies at Pike Nursery, 4020 Roswell Rd. PikeNusery.com

CARLY GRACE’S NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION TIPS As you create goals for 2017, set accountability components. “I think of goal-setting like I think about my yoga practice. I believe dedication leads to a change in lifestyle. Some days, I feel invigorated, other days I am lethargic; but I am always practicing. —Carly Grace Hinchman, Thunderbolt Power Yoga, 3872 Roswell Rd. NE. ThunderboltPowerYoga.com “Most of us have a hard time getting the recommended nutrition from foods we eat each day, so A MULTIVITAMIN MAKES SENSE to fill in any gaps. Choose a powdered or gel form without sugar, preservatives or artificial coloring,” recommends Dana Neacsu, MD, Medical Creations Integrative Medicine. 6045 Barfield Rd. NE.

wning a Mercedes-Benz automobile was out of young Dietmar Exler’s reach in his native Austria. “My biggest interest when I was like 18 or 19 years old was getting a ride and keeping it running—because I was a little

short on money,” the personable Exler chuckles as he recounts those days. At that time, a career in the automotive space was not even a consideration. But his position as a consultant, first for global management company McKinsey & Company in nearby Germany, ultimately became his gateway to management at Mercedes-Benz over a decade ago. In 2016, that “short on money” boy from Austria assumed the president/CEO position of Mercedes-Benz USA, which had recently relocated from New Jersey to Georgia. Even before his big jump to CEO, however, Exler, who was then vice president of sales, had a say about where the company was going and was gung-ho about the move to Atlanta.

[

WITH STATE-OF-THE-ART CONFERENCE ROOMS, A GYM, ON-SITE CHILDCARE AND MORE, EXLER IS

ENTHUSED ABOUT THEIR

200,000-SQUARE-FOOT

“Atlanta was pretty much the number one choice for everybody,” he explains with his notable accent. “For me, it was the logistics—it was the airport that allows us to get everywhere, including Europe.” The ample construction industry was also a win for him. “It’s a growing town with a very positive vibe,” notes Exler. “Things are going up everywhere. That’s exciting.”

WINTER 2017

And so is the Falcons stadium bearing the iconic brand’s name and, equally important, Mercedes’s anticipated 2018 move to its permanent 200,000-square-foot Sandy Springs headquarters at Barfield and Abernathy Roads near Highway 400. “We are pretty enthused about it,” Exler says of the new headquarters site, where the company broke ground in early fall 2016. With state-of-the-art conference rooms, a gym, on-site childcare, plenty of space for collaboration and more planned, who can blame him? The specter of Atlanta traffic can’t even dim his enthusiasm. “It’s a little bit like moving from being a renter to a homeowner. It’s your own place. Not that this is a bad place for temporary offices,” he continues, referring to their present digs in the Perimeter Mall area. “It’s very, very nice. We have no complaints about it. But, if you own your own place, it’s a little bit different.”

Still, shiny offices and exciting new beginnings fall short of the area’s greatest appeal for this married father of one. “You guys call it Southern hospitality. I learned what that means,” he smiles. “After we came here, we had a lot of companies call us and say, ‘Hey, anything we can do to help you?” He comments. “People are just friendly and very nice here.”

Dietmar Exler’s 3 MercedesBenz Picks

Who better to give the heads-up on the latest offerings from Mercedes-Benz than CEO Dietmar Exler?

G550 4x4 What began as a hand-built military vehicle in the early 1970s in Exler’s native Austria has become one of the world’s most sought-after “off-road vehicles.” And, for the first time ever, this iconic G-Wagen, in the $100,000+ price range, is available at U.S. car dealerships.

SL450 Exler loves this stylish roadster and, thanks to Atlanta’s mild weather, he can drop the top virtually all year round. For 2017, the all-new SL450 updates and replaces the SL400. Pricing begins at $86,950 but, with all the bells and whistles, can easily ring in at around $100,000.

Smart Fortwo Cabrio At just under $20,000, the Smart Fortwo Cabrio is billed as “the most affordable convertible on the market.” Kiss those parking woes goodbye: the Fortwo Cabrio has rarely met a space where it didn’t fit. Plus, when you let it free, it cruises out at 96 mph.

Yet until the series aired, many people in the community did not know that their favorite local businesswoman was in the midst of a health crisis. And what they saw was as moving as it was enlightening. “We showed the nitty gritty. There was no hair and makeup for that show. It was real, and that’s how I wanted it to be,” Allen reveals. “And after it aired, I

Then they ask me how I’m doing,” says Allen, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012 and decided to allow TLC, the network behind her beloved television shows “Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta” and “Say Yes to the Dress: Bridesmaids,” to film her throughout her diagnosis and recovery. The award-winning docu-series, “Say Yes to the Cure: Lori’s Fight,” encouraged Allen to begin traveling the country advocating for mammograms and early diagnosis.

realized that maybe there was a reason for all of this. I have a huge women’s platform, and it’s very important for me to share my story.” Fortunately, after a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery, Allen remains cancer free and has been able to return to her first love: Bridals by Lori. Allen was only two weeks out of college when she opened her original 1,000-square-foot shop with 25 dresses, which was located across the street from the current 25,000-square-foot bridal boutique that has become a tourist destination over the last several years. Brides from all over the world seek the counsel of Allen and her entire staff, which includes fashion director

Monty Durham, bridal manager Robin Gibbs and bridal assistant manager Flori Waters. “This experience is something brides dream about. And for each one that comes in the door, it’s usually her first time,” Allen says. “Our goal is to make them feel comfortable and at home.” It’s a philosophy that has worked for nearly 30 years—and will continue to for years to come. “I will never leave bridal. I love what I do,” Allen concludes. “And I love the Sandy Springs community. They supported me before TV, and they’ll be here with me after TV. They are the truest fans. And when I opened that original store, I would never have imagined everything that has happened. It’s been a crazy ride.”

Wedding Dress 101 by Lori Looking your absolute best on your wedding day is what Lori Allen and her staff want for every bride. She offers these tips to

keep in mind as you begin your search for the ultimate wedding dress.

For Girls with Curves An A-line skirt will make your curves work to your best advantage by slimming your hips and defining your waist.

For Super-Slim Ladies Select a gown with texture; it adds interest without overwhelming your small frame. Fuller skirts also add the illusion of curves.

For Women with a Thicker Waistline Sashes help define the waist; look for dresses with these details, or try gowns that could easily have a sash added. BridalsByLori.com

Lori Allen turned her passion for bridal fashion into one of the most successful bridal businesses not only in Sandy Springs, but also the entire region. She also turned her own battle with breast cancer into a passion—to share her story with and inspire others.

three decades, Hunger traveled the world as a global vice president of sales and marketing for several manufacturing and distribution companies. Tired of constantly being away from home and family, he recently traded in his business suit for a bike helmet as the new president of ElectroBike Georgia. Hunger has opened the state’s first ElectroBike retail shop in Brookhaven, with more shops soon to follow. Eric moved to Sandy Springs in 1975 with his parents and brothers. After graduating from the University of Georgia, he married Sandy Springs native Beth Suttle, and the two settled in the Huntcliff neighborhood where they raised two daughters, Alexandra and Caroline. An avid outdoorsman and ALTA tennis player, Hunger is now discovering the fun

MYSS_018-025_PROFILES.indd 25

of recreational cycling as well as the convenience of bicycle commuting. “ElectroBikes are state-of-the art, motorized bicycles powered by a rechargeable lithium ion battery,” explains Hunger. “They can be ridden as traditional bicycles and cost about the same as a good mountain bike, but with the flip of a switch, the rider can turn on the pedal assist feature, as well as a throttle for additional power. I love being able to ride as far as I want on a bike trail, but if my knees start to feel a little painful, I can use the pedal assist to easily get back home. Thanks to all the new bike lanes around here, Beth and I can cycle along the Chattahoochee River or we can head over to some of our favorite restaurants, like Slope’s BBQ, Zafron’s and Hudson Grille.” “The world looks very different from a bicycle seat, and I sure don’t miss being stuck in traffic,” Hunger laughs. “Selling ElectroBikes gives me time with my family, time outdoors and a new way to enjoy all the wonderful things that Sandy Springs has to offer.”
