Since July of this year, Dr. Mark McKenna has been the CEO of OVME, a company that is helping to reshape the face of elective healthcare. Before assuming control of OVME, Dr. McKenna was the head of ShapeMed, a leading provider of Botox, Juvederm, and Latisse treatments that he founded in 2007 when he moved to Atlanta, Georgia. In November 2014 he sold ShapeMed to Life Time Fitness Inc. and he also became Life Time’s National Medical Director. A New Orleans native, Dr.McKenna received his medical training at Tulane University Medical School. He went into practice with his father and also started a boutique real estate firm. Many of Dr. McKenna’s business interests were destroyed when Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans in 2005. He played an active tole in the reconstruction of the city with low-moderate income housing that he helped redevelop. Dr. McKenna is a member of the Entrepreneurs Organization and he has been on the board of the New Orleans Industrial Development Board and the New Orleans Jazz Festival.
Dr. McKenna got the idea for OVME after 10 years of working in the industry of medical aesthetics. He believes his personal habits of reading, visualization, and goat setting have helped him achieve success. He does wish that he had taken things a little slower, particularity when he was in school, so he could have attained more direction in his life. He counts Michael Bloomberg, Elon Musk, and Barack Obama as his influences.
In 2013 Dr.McKenna appeared in the first episode of the CBS series, Doctorpreneur. This series ran segments that brought attention to the entrepreneurial aspects of medicine. Dr. McKenna provided information on ShapeMed, which at the time was making plans to begin franchise sales. In 2012, ShapeMed received re-qualification for the “Black diamond” certification which is given out by Allergen Inc. This certification recognizes medical clinics who specialize in medical aesthetics.
