Mark McKenna is a true Renaissance man. He’s been successful as a physician, businessman and community leader. McKenna grew up in New Orleans, and graduated from Tulane University Medical School. He quickly became a leader in the field of lifestyle and aesthetic medicine. During his time in New Orleans, McKenna also invested in real estate.
His real estate business was heavily impacted by Hurricane Katrina. At this point, some people would have given up. Not Dr. McKenna. He helped the city rebuild. A particular interest of McKenna’s was low- to moderate-income housing. He also served on the board of the New Orleans Industrial Development Board.
In 2007, with rebuilding well underway, McKenna relocated to the Atlanta area. There he started ShapeMed. ShapeMed grew to become one of the largest aesthetic medical practices in the country. Eventually, it was bought out by a larger company. McKenna stayed on to help with the transition.
Today, McKenna has a new venture. He is Founder and CEO of OVME, a company that’s set to revolutionize the practice of medical aesthetics. OVME is fully tech-enabled. It’s something consumers can access themselves, without an intermediary. It looks like Dr. Mark McKenna is set to make another big impact in his practice area.
Mark McKenna has a hunger for knowledge. He reads extensively, keeping up on the latest medical knowledge and economic news. He looks to industries besides his own for inspiration. McKenna actively follows the world of finance, especially the burgeoning field of crypto-currencies. He’s intrigued by the way Elon Musk’s mind works, too.
But perhaps most importantly, McKenna sees himself as a family man. He continued his father’s legacy of working in medicine. In fact, his first job was in his Dad’s practice. He is a devoted husband and father. He also loves dogs.
McKenna has packed a lot of successes into a short career. With his wide range of interests and track record of success, it will be interesting to see what Dr. McKenna does next.
