Shannon M. Campbell began her career in the financial services industry, spending over eleven years in various positions throughout retail banking, operations, marketing and social responsibility. She has spent the last five years focusing on financial empowerment and education for youth and adults in low-wealth communities across the country.
Ms. Campbell joined Operation HOPE in 2009. In her role as Director of HOPE Corps, Operation HOPE’s global volunteer portfolio, Campbell is responsible for a network of over 10,000 individuals dedicated to the promotion of financial self-sufficiency, self-empowerment, dignity and HOPE. In support of HOPE’s 5 MILLION KIDS Initiative, HOPE Corps has launched the 5% movement and will recruit and train 25,000 HOPE Corps members to teach financial literacy, dignity and entrepreneurship throughout the United States, South Africa and Haiti by 2014.
In addition to her responsibilities at Operation HOPE, Ms. Campbell works closely with a project started through the World Economic Forum’s Young Global Leaders, called Global Dignity (www.globaldignity.org). Global Dignity was co-founded by John Hope Bryant, Professor Pekka Himanen and HRH Crown Prince Haakon of Norway. Annually, on October 20th, Young Global Leaders from around the world host events in their respective countries speaking to youth about the importance of treating both themselves and others with dignity as well as striving to lead a dignified life. Since 2009, Campbell successfully managed events in over 45 countries around the world, in which we were able to reach over 50,000 youth.
Ms. Campbell is an active volunteer in her community and is passionate about issues related to youth, education and financial empowerment. In addition to volunteering for the Banking on Our Future program, she also regularly mentors a teen girl through the Big Brothers Big Sisters program, and in 2008 was recognized as Big Sister of the Year.
