Mark McKenna, MD, MBA, is a reputed medical doctor licensed to carry out surgery in Georgia and Florida State Board of Medical Examiners. McKenna graduated from Tulane University Medical School. Although he first ventured into the real estate industry, his interest in the medical segment remained. In 2007 he launched ShapeMed, an aesthetic and wellness medical practice in Atlanta, GA. Under his leadership, Dr. McKenna has steered the firm into achieving Black Diamond Certification. The certification recognizes leaders in the medical aesthetics sector who demonstrate a commitment to innovate and excellence in patient care. This was a significant milestone as only less than one percent of MD’s in the country achieves that accreditation.
In July 2017, he founded OVME, a leading consumer facing, and technology driven medical aesthetic firm that is restructuring elective healthcare. Dr. McKenna is also the founder of Universal Mortgage Lending and Uptown Title. These companies offer building, financing, and real estate closing services. Under his leadership, the two firms grew tremendously.
Interview with Ideamensch
In a recent interview with Ideamensch, Dr. McKenna outlined his path to success. The idea of OVME came from his experience in the industry. He saw that as the only idea to disrupt the sector. Setting goals and following them to the letter is a recipe for success that has helped shape Dr. Mark McKenna to the person he is today. Meditation and setting smart goals will enable you realize your objectives.
Dr. McKenna is fascinated with the decline in smoking in the United States. He also believes that his character of being an insatiable reader helps him understand market trends and guide him in wise investment. If given a chance to start again, the successful surgeon would take it. He would then spend more time trying to find his passion at a young age. McKenna believes that it is wise to go slowly and he regrets some steps he took quickly.
Surrounding with smarter people is the only way you can grow your business. As an intelligent person, Dr. Mark gave a business idea that has not been fully exploited, the retail brick and mortar crypto currency business.
