Dr. Mark McKenna is a genius when it comes to building businesses.
After graduating Tulsa University Medical School, Dr. Mark McKenna would join his father’s medical practice in New Orleans. Dr. Mark McKenna’s parents were both entrepreneurs themselves – his dad, ran his own medical practice and his mom, owned a publishing company. He would work for his dad for 5 years, but while in all, the two would start a real estate development firm titled, ‘McKenna Venture Investments’. The business would thrive and would expand to two other companies, ‘Universal Mortgage Lending’ and ‘Uptown Title, Inc. The business would grow to a worth of $5 million a year and employ 50+.
Heart-break would strike in 2005 when most of the real estate business gets destroyed on the account of Hurricane Katrina. As a result, the business would accumulate zero cash-flow. Dr. Mark McKenna and his father would attempt to rebuild the business, it had minor successes, but the business wouldn’t be very lucrative, so it was sold for $700,000.
Dr. Mark McKenna would leave New Orleans and reside in Atlanta, Ga. He wouldn’t let the disaster of New Orleans get the best of his care, so he picked up his spirits and started a new business, ShapeMed. The ShapeMed business would provide Atlanta with weight loss and non-surgical aesthetic solutions that the community would absolutely love. The business would grow to $4 million in revenue a year.
Dr. McKenna would sell the business to Life Time Fitness Inc. and even work for the acquirer as their National Medical Director of Life. A year later, the doctor would start his own Atlanta-based company, UVME.
Since 2016, the UVME business has been in existence, providing innovative aesthetic procedures and products from a team of certified goal-oriented caregiving professionals with a positive spirit towards making people look and feel better.
