OVME is a company that will change the game of medical aesthetics in the near future. The CEO and Founder of OVME, Dr. Mark McKenna, is an innovator and his vision for his company will reinvent this industry. His plan is to develop an app that can be used by clients to schedule botox appointments on demand. Does this sound familiar? His inspiration for his new company was the Uber app. Similar to using an app to schedule a ride from an available driver, the OVME app will connect a chain of medical offices to clients that will provide cosmetic services, such as botox treatments, at their homes on demand.
Mark is no stranger when it comes to starting taking new opportunities and new ventures. He is a successful entrepreneur who knows an opportunity when he sees one. After he graduated and earned a medical degree, he began his career as a medical doctor and surgeon at his father’s medical office. He practiced medicine for 5 years. During this time, he developed a real estate development company in New Orleans, Louisiana that became successful. He states that he was making $500,000 a year and his company was worth between 4 to 5 million dollars.
When Hurricane Katrina decimated the city of New Orleans and destroyed his real estate investments, he saw this as another opportunity. After losing almost 2 million dollars overnight, and seeing his city of birth in utter ruin, he decided to focus on rebuilding New Orleans from the ground up. He invested money in buying properties that were ravaged by the flood and built low to moderate income housing on them. He sold these properties for a modest price, rebuilding his wealth.
In a span of two years, he had made enough money to relocate to Atlanta, Georgia and created his next company, Shape Med. ShapeMed was able to generate 4 million dollars a year in revenue. He was able to put 1 million of that money into his pocket. Lifetime Fitness eventually bought his company for 4 billion dollars. He used this profit to start his present company, OVME.
