Janet Cowell is a business investment expert who has helped create thousands
of North Carolina jobs. As a state Senator she has protected North Carolina
pensions and invested in our future by raising teacher pay, improving schools,
and making college more affordable for North Carolina families.
Janet Cowell is the first person in her family to run for public office. Despite
this she is not the first person in her family to be involved in public service.
Her father was a Methodist Minister and her mother was a school teacher.
Janet attended the University of Pennsylvania and later graduated with an
MBA from the Wharton School of Business – the top business school in
America. In 1989 Janet was studying abroad in China when the Democracy riots
broke out. As a foreign student she witnessed firsthand people struggling to
have a democratic form of government this largely inspired her public service.
After college Janet Cowell worked for HSBC bank and Lehman Brothers as a stock
analyst. Janet’s work as a securities analyst helped open up the Asian
investment market to more Americans and ensured that money managers made wise
investments in solid companies that would provide healthy returns for millions
of retirees and other investors here in the United States.
Janet was first elected to the Raleigh City Council in 2001 and was elected
to the North Carolina State Senate in 2004.
