Dr. Mark McKenna: Standing on the Edge of the Future

Dr. Mark McKenna began his business career with his launch of McKenna Venture Investments. This was a bold move on his part because he had only recently started to practice medicine with his father after graduating college. Even though he knew that it would be hard, Dr.  Mark McKenna was determined to make it work for him. He founded his own real estate firm, McKenna Venture Investments and started spectating other businesses.

While medicine was his background, Dr. McKenna explains that he always had a special place in his heart for the real estate market. He eventually acquired two other companies and grew his small startup to over 50 employees. Unfortunately, in 2005 his string of successful businesses were destroyed by Hurricane Katrina but he did not take this as in invitation to give up. Instead, he pulled himself back up and set out to make an even better company. With a failing real estate market, Dr. McKenna looked toward the medical aesthetics community for his next big venture.

Looking for a change of scenery and fostering a change in vocational direction, Dr. McKenna relocated to Atlanta, Georgia. It was there that he launched his new medical practice ShapeMed. ShapeMed was an enormous hit among its clientele and eventually drew national attention for its innovative approach to the medical aesthetics community. Dr. Mark McKenna leveraged this attention and sold ShapeMed to Life Time Fitness Inc in 2014, where he began serving and the National Medical Director.

While he enjoyed his time at Life Time Fitness Inc., Dr. Mark McKenna had a business mindset and an idea for a different kind of medical aesthetics company. OVME, or “of me”, is his new person-centered aesthetics company that launched to help create a better experience for his clients. The technology enabled company allows patients to access information via a very customer friendly application and they can even have providers visit them in the home for a variety of services, such as Botox. This is certainly different than the established notion that clients should come into an uninviting medical office to receive their elective care. Dr. Mark McKenna knows what the future looks like, and he intends to be at the forefront with OVME and more
