Dr. Mark McKenna realized early on in his career while attending Tulane University Medical that it would be difficult to earn a good amount of money being a doctor. After graduating, he decided to get involved in real estate, but after Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, he decided to move on to Atlanta Georgia to seek his fortune. There, he started up ShapeMed, which had many different offices that provided its clientele with cosmetic related treatments. Realizing the potential to make a huge gain, he sold ShapeMed to Lifetime Fitness in 2015 and eventually, completely, moved on from it once it was acquired by private equity.
Dr. Mark McKenna then decided to startup OVME, which is a chain of cosmetic medical offices in the United States that also connects customers with practitioners who can serve them right in their own home. Part of what sets OVME apart from other businesses that try to emulate its model is the fact that it is using modern technology to a much greater extent, which is allowing the company to offer mobile apps and virtual consults to help its customers receive better service. An amazing innovation OVME has made is in the way that it connects customers with medical providers. By creating a network of medical aesthetic professionals, the company can directly connect them with customers who are seeking their services. This gets rid of alot of the normal costs that go with the territory.
Dr. Mark McKenna raised $4 million for the startup costs of OVME, which helped him to build their initial clinics in Nashville and Atlanta and to develop the important mobile app. He has commented that while there may be some local competition for business model, there is no one that is offering what OVME does on a national level. Looking ahead, Dr. Mark McKenna believes that he can grow OVME into a multi-million dollar company that has possibly earned $25 million within the next half-decade. The name of the company sounds like “of me,” and this refers to the fact that the company is there to serve, you, the customer who will fund its success.
