Mark Anthony Jenkins breathes life into people through leadership, inspiration, and motivation. He was born and raised in the Bronx and studied Business Management and Marketing at Fordham University. After his studies, he pursued his passion for becoming an entrepreneur.
Jenkins entered the speaking circuit in 1994, where he launched a company called, Jenkins Communications. This company featured and promoted motivational training seminars to uplift individuals, churches, schools and, non- profit organizations. As an upcoming speaker in the 90’s, he delivered high-energy, thought-provoking presentations that encouraged others to abandon conformity and live up to their full potential. The messages spoke of derived from his own life experiences; one that others may apply to their own lives. During this time he was mentored by motivational speaker, Les Brown.
At the turn of the 21st century, he left the speaking circuit and started the East Coast Black Business & Professionals Network. During this time he became known hosting business network mixers in New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Washington, DC, and Delaware. Hosting networking mixer was not enough so years later in 2011 he changed the mission and the name and the New York African American Chamber of Commerce was born.
Jenkins is also the President and CEO of Black Expo America, Inc., a national trade show and marketing company based in New York City. The New York Black Expo Inc in partnership with the New York African American Chamber of Commerce helps market, advertise and promote African American, Caribbean American and African products and services via monthly networking events, business conferences, and expos.
In recognition of his marketing success as a business owner, Jenkins has been interviewed on WHCR. He has also been highlighted in the Network Journal and several other magazine articles. Jenkins says he put his unique marketing concept on everything when there is a need. Mark Anthony Jenkins is also bringing the 2014 New York Black Expo to the New York area. “There has not been a particular business expo focusing on the African American, Caribbean American, and African products and services. The New York Black Expo will focus on developing, growing and educating African-Americans, Caribbean Americans and Africans via entrepreneurial, business planning and financial literacy seminars and workshops.”
