Early Life and Education
Jenny Campbell was born on 5th October 1961 in Hyde, Cheshire, in northwest England. Born into a family of bankers, Campbell continued to pursue the field as her career as well. She was a part of the Manchester High School for Girls, and at 16 years of age, she left high school and devoted her time and effort to advance in the banking field. Her first job after leaving high school was at a National Westminster Bank branch, commonly known as NatWest, a central commercial and retail bank. Campbell further acquired her banking qualifications and continued to develop her career.
Campbell married a member of the Royal Air Force, Andrew, who is now retired after serving 30 years in the RAF. The couple has two sons, Rik and Tom, both of whom are in their 20s. Jenny lives with her husband at a beautiful country estate in Suffolk, England, with her three gundog retrievers whom she is very fond of.
Career & Net Worth Building
After her work at NatWest, Campbell pursued a different path in order to achieve a higher status in the business. She took on the responsibility of saving a failing cash machine business by the Royal Bank of Scotland.
Due to rapid and untimely expansion, Hanco ATM systems had been earning losses for the RBS. Due to Campbell’s experience, she was appointed as the Head of Operations of the company, where she continued to manage the business and allowed it to be profitable effectively. However, the RBS decided to sell the firm in 2007, and Campbell saw this as an opportunity to broaden her horizons in the banking field and therefore bought Hanco ATM systems. Jenny felt that there was much room for the business to grow and be successful throughout Europe. She saw potential in the ATM company and therefore decided to invest money into the business.
In 2010, Campbell became the owner of the business and renamed it YourCash Europe. Under the supervision of Jenny, the company grew rapidly and bore many successes for Campbell. She exited the non-management stakeholders from her business in 2013 and, therefore, became the primary stakeholder of the successful company.
Jenny continued to run YourCash for ten years before selling it in 2016 when Euronet Worldwide Inc. acquired the business.
