A close look at Dr. Mark McKenna reveals a man who is energetic, focused and committed. He attended Tulane University Medical School, recognized nationally for its emphasis on research and high quality patient care. Completing his training in surgery and medicine at the Tulane University Hospital, Dr. McKenna remained in New Orleans and practiced with his father. During this time, his interest in business and real estate led to the start of McKenna Venture Investments. Through subsequent years he continued to establish and acquire New Orleans based companies including Universal Mortgage Lending and Uptown Title, Inc.
By 2005, Dr. McKenna had developed strong ties to the community as a result of his medical practice and business interests when Hurricane Katrina devastated the city of New Orleans. The storm destroyed many of his business ventures in the area. As the city struggled to rebuild, he remained committed to the community, working to help the displaced through the redevelopment of low to moderate income housing.
After moving to Atlanta, Georgia two years later, Dr. McKenna, licensed in Surgery and Medicine by Georgia’s State Board of Medical Examiners, focused his medical practice on wellness and non-surgical aesthetic procedures. Through the establishment of Shape Medical Wellness Center in Atlanta, patients have been offered wide-ranging weight loss solutions and non-surgical procedures.
The sale of ShapeMed to Life Time Fitness Inc. provided the stimulus for launching OVME. As founder and Chief Executive Officer, Dr. McKenna emphasizes the reinvention of elective health care through technology. OVME is a tech-enabled company connecting patients with skilled health care in order to deliver quality medical solutions.
While in New Orleans, Dr. McKenna served on the board of the New Orleans Jazz Festival and the Industrial Development Board. He is currently a member of the Entrepreneurs Organization. A 2017 IdeaMensch interview noted that his regular goal setting and quiet time spent in the practice of visualization during meditation were part of his formula for success. Although Dr. McKenna spends 10 hours at work, his regular daily routine includes breakfast with his daughter, family dinner and jiu jitsu training.
