Dr. Mark McKenna is a doctor, entrepreneur, and philanthropist who sold his successful company, ShapeMed and then went on to create OVME. He feels that entrepreneurship has always been in his blood and points to the fact that he has never worked for another person a single day of his life. While he attributes some of this to how own abilities, he also acknowledges the fact that, both, his mother and father also worked for themselves. He feels that they laid the ground, so to speak, for him, and he is grateful to have had role models like them.
When Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, Dr. Mark McKenna was working as the creator and Chief Executive Officer of Universal Mortgage Lending, McKenna Crescent Investments, and Uptown Title. His company built and designed residential homes and offered mortgage financing. At the peak of the company, there were 55 employees. The hurricane forced his girlfriend and him to flee, and he thought it would be a short evacuation. It lasted longer than he had imagines, and when they both returned, they found that the company’s employees were all over the country, that his properties were not as insured as they should of been, and that he had no cash to fix anything.
Dr. Mark McKenna eventually got back on his feet, and in the process he helped to rebuild the city of New Orleans. Instead of remaining in the city after he helped with its rebuilding, he decided to move to Atlanta, Georgia where he would eventually put together OVME, which is a retail medical aesthetic company. Officially founded in July of 2017, the company was started with $4 million in local financing from a venture capital firm in the area. Now, him and his loyal team work hard to disrupt the industry in every possible way, which is benefiting people because of what OVME offers them.
Dr. Mark McKenna graduated from Tulane University Medical School and is licensed by the Florida and Georgia State Board of Medical Examiners to practice. He is a known patient advocate and puts his passion into helping as many people as he possibly can.
