Since then and as an entrepreneur and accountant he has had a diverse and interesting career. With the emergence of the Internet this has since evolved into a thriving business. This has since expanded to incorporate branded handbags and jewellery. In 2021 the watch business was acquired by German online watch platform Chrono24 and Frank continued to run Xupes but with handbags and jewellery. He founded McKenzie Art & Design to handle the sale of his vast collection.
