Andrew Wessels
Biography
Andrew Wessels is the Founder and CEO of The Marque. A natural communicator and a successful entrepreneur in his own right, Andrew traded a first-class cricket career in his native South Africa for a British-based business trajectory; from J.P Morgan Investment Management to Carphone Warehouse where he helped set up the Wireless Internet Portfolio (later to become Frontiers Capital). Since then, Andrew has focused his energies on innovative start-ups and helped launch Marquis Jet in Europe (later sold to Netjets) and Storm Solutions, a telecoms business which he successfully exited in 2012.

Whilst pondering his next business move, Andrew spotted a gap in the market that gave rise in 2015 to The Marque Global; a personal business network and digital platform with an exclusive, powerful member base. The global thought leader behind managing online profiles, Andrew is now steering business profiling into its digital future with The Marque, a profile management business for the 21st Century. Embracing an emerging future in online image media, a future in which our online profiles are certain to be as, if not more, important than their real-life counterparts, The Marque has rapidly become a global prototype; the de facto source of trusted, elegantly crafted information about successful people on the web. ‘Two years ago, nobody cared about their online profile’, says Andrew. ‘That has all changed and here at The Marque we are passionate about spearheading that change.’

The anti-social network

Who are you? Managing partner and philanthropist? Rapper and VC investor? Chairman and talk show host?  For some individuals, one title is simply not enough. This was the thinking behind The Marque (www.themarque.com), which appears to be the anti-LinkedIn of online professional profiling.  The rationale is quite straightforward; there is a certain type of person for who the internet currently simply does not cater...says founder of the business Andrew Wessels.
