Nancy Shevell – Biography and Age
It is not strange or unheard of to have a spouse whose glory and limelight overshadows you, especially when that spouse is one of the greatest performers to ever live. However, it doesn’t negate your own successes, especially when you are Nancy Shevell, the Vice-President of a business conglomerate.
Nancy was born on the 20th of November 1959 to parents, Myron and Arlene Shevell in New York but was raised in Edison, New Jersey. She came into an affluent family as her father was the owner of the transportation company, New England Motor Freight.
A very determined Nancy would later run her father’s transportation business, a fact that comes as no surprise due to the fact that as a child, she was often more interested in toy trucks, choosing to play with them as part of her tomboy persona instead of the girly dolls that most girls were known for. She would spend more time at her father’s truck terminals, playing around with co-workers. As a young girl, other activities she enjoyed included skiing and flying. She also represented her high school in the all-girl football team.
For her education, Nancy Shevell naturally followed up her childhood interest to the college level, majoring in transportation at Arizona State University where she continued her track record of finding more comfort in male-dominated spaces. Upon graduation, she joined her father’s business in 1983, faced with the arduous task of returning the business to its glory days after a string of bad years which had been a result of her father’s bad partnership with his brother and accusations of fraud.
Despite a massive reluctance to continue with the business as the stress of her father’s mess piled on, she persevered and would later become the Vice-President of Shevell Group of Companies, which comprised of several companies, including the New England Motor Freight. In 2001, as a reward and in recognition of her work as Vice-President, she was named onto the board of The Metropolitan Transportation Authority by George Pataki, who was the governor of New York at the time.
However, it is not all typically male interests for Nancy. She is also known to frequently enjoy fashion shows, which she regularly attends with her husband, Paul McCartney.
For someone who has worked as hard as Nancy Shevell has running many shows in male-dominated spaces, turns out that those years of playing with toy trucks instead of dolls bore their own fruits. Life as the Vice-President of a company she helped transform into a success story has helped Nancy Shevell to a sizeable net worth of $200 million.
