New Orleans native Dr. Mark McKenna has developed a sterling reputation as both a caring physician and a very successful entrepreneur. Since earning his MBA and graduating from Tulane University Medical School, Dr. McKenna has gone on to play an important role in the lives of people in New Orleans. He spent years working in medicine there with his father. He has also held positions on the New Orleans Jazz Festival board as well as the New Orleans Industrial Development Board. Dr. Mark McKenna is also revered as a dedicated community servant and someone who passionately advocate for patients.
But Dr. Mark McKenna is also an entrepreneur at heart. Even while helping patients in Louisiana and becoming a board-certified surgeon in both Florida and Georgia, he still managed to build his real estate development company McKenna Venture Investments. At its height, the real estate company employed 50 people and expanded to include Uptown Title, Inc., as well as Universal Mortgage Lending. Through those companies Dr. McKenna offered financing, real estate closing assistance and design-build services.
Hurricane Katrina changed all that when it struck the city in 2005. Many parts of New Orleans were devastated. Dr. McKenna lost much of his assets and his clients. Still, for the next two years, he helped with rebuilding efforts. He created housing for people with low to moderate income and did his best to help the people of New Orleans in any way he possibly could. In 2007, Dr. Mark McKenna moved to Atlanta, Georgia and started a new business venture. It was a medical aesthetics company called ShapeMed. It became wildly successful and Dr. McKenna sold it to Life Time Fitness in 2014.
Now a husband and father, Dr. Mark McKenna has founded new company to help people interested in elective healthcare. It’s called OVME and offers technology enabled medical aesthetics services. As he builds his new company, Dr. McKenna makes sure to spend time with his wife and daughter every day. He credits the peace that brings, his meditation, love for reading, goal-setting practices and martial arts training for his success.
