Dr. Mark McKenna is the founder and CEO of a relatively new company called OVME. OVME was initially launched in 2017, and the correct pronunciation is actually “of me.” This is to reflect the medical aesthetics company’s attitude of focusing on the consumer before anything else.
When Dr. Mark McKenna came up with the idea for OVME, he was practicing medicine in the medical aesthetics industry. He wanted to expanded on his practice in a new and creative way, while also working towards making positive change in the industry.
The successful entrepreneur and licensed practicing surgeon completed his studies at Tulane University Medical School. Once he was awarded his degree he jumped into practicing medicine almost immediately. Dr. Mark McKenna has said that he wishes he would have taken more time to find out what his true passions were when he was younger, and he regrets focusing too much on finishing up school quickly.
What many people may not know is that, on top of his accomplishments in the world of medical aesthetics, Dr. Mark McKenna also has a great deal of experience in real estate development. His boutique firm, McKenna Venture Investments, had many promising prospects in New Orleans, Louisiana. Almost all of these prospects were hit hard by Hurricane Katrina in August of 2005, causing McKenna Venture Investments to incur some heavy losses.
In the face of this financial setback McKenna still did everything he could to help the New Orleans community rebuild after the devastation. For quite a while he focused on developing housing for low and moderate income people who had been negatively affected by the hurricane.
When McKenna decide he wanted to create OVME, he was able to quite rapidly raise well over $4 million from investors to help with the launch. Soon, OVME went on to establish clinics in Atlanta, Georgia and in Nashville, Tennesee. The innovative and well-designed mobile app has also had a major impact in reaching new clients.
