Peter Fatianow is the President and CEO for Somnia, a new retail sleep solutions store located in Park Meadows Mall in Lone Tree, Colorado. Fatianow founded Somnia along with his partners, Mats Wahlström, and Kerry Hicks, all of KMG Capital Partners, LLC, to achieve their shared vision of helping the 40 million of Americans suffering from chronic sleep disorders overcome their issues and significantly improve their overall mental and physical health.


With more than 20 years of healthcare industry experience, Fatianow is keenly qualified to develop a sleep and wellness concept store.

Previously, Fatianow was a founder of Specialty Care Network, Inc. (SCN), a physician practice management company that went public in 1997.

He also wrote a book for beginning wine enthusiasts, Wine 101: A Fun and Informative Introduction to the Wonderful World of Wine.


Finding that he couldn't stay away from the healthcare industry for long, Fatianow eventually returned as the Vice President of Development at Health Ventures, until January 2013 when he left to research the sleep market and eventually went on to develop the first comprehensive sleep and wellness concept store, Somnia. He also serves on the Board of Assistive Coding, LLC, a specialty medical coding and consulting company based in Littleton, Colorado.


Fatianow currently resides in Denver with his family and enjoys spending time with friends and family, enjoying good food and wine, traveling the world, and taking care of his 125-gallon reef aquarium.
