New York-based entrepreneur and wellness expert Eugene Remm builds businesses based on his passion for food, beverage and fitness — with the ultimate goal of creating authentic, extreme experiences. Remm’s sharp creative direction and flair for crafting brands that resonate combine with a business strategy that balances structure with culture in unique concepts. His companies — which house a combined 1,000+ employees — are bi-coastal, multi-market operations including Catch Hospitality Group (Catch Restaurants, Lexington Brass) and Rumble, a boxing-inspired group fitness concept.
Dubbed by Forbes Magazine as one of the “New Kings of New York Hospitality,” Catch Hospitality Group (CHG) co-founder Eugene Remm and his partner Mark Birnbaum pioneered dynamic hospitality experiences by using food, service and vibe to create seamless transitions between dining, nightlife and entertainment. With a focus on culture and brand, Remm has propelled globally-influenced seafood restaurant Catch (2011) from a standalone NYC flagship to an international phenomenon with successful locations in L.A., Dubai and Playa del Carmen and additional outposts slated for 2018. Most recently, CHG welcomed a new partner — entrepreneur and owner of the largest private restaurant corporation in the U.S. — Tillman Fertitta.
On a mission to revolutionize group fitness, Remm co-founded Rumble (2017) — one of the fastest-growing fitness concepts in America — with partners Noah Neiman, Andy Stenzler and Anthony DiMarco. The 45-minute, 10-round workout combines boxing-inspired cardio and full-body strength training to deliver serious results in a fun, high-energy setting. With brick-and-mortar locations open in Manhattan’s Flatiron and NoHo neighborhoods, and 2018 expansion plans for L.A., San Francisco, D.C, and Philadelphia, Rumble’s innate success is accelerated by a recent minority stake acquisition by high-performance lifestyle leader and operator, Equinox Fitness Clubs. As Chief Concept Officer Remm leads the brand’s evolution — inclusive of its culture, lifestyle, music and retail collaborations — welcoming a new generation of boxers to an elevated group fitness game.
