How PeggyBank came to be
PeggyBank was founded in Omaha, Nebraska in 2010. Our roots however, stretch a lot further back.
Growing up in the 1970's, PeggyBank founder Jim Simon was fascinated by his family's home video camera. He loved the technology sure, but even more, he loved the camera's ability to capture the events that shaped his family and friend's lives. Jim filmed everything, his siblings' birthday parties, his grandparents' anniversaries and even his own comedy routines.
Fast-forward to 2010, when Jim attempted to transfer all the photos, slides, audio recordings, and home movies that he had collected over the decades to digital. It wasn't an easy task. Because technology changes rapidly, he had media in dozens of older formats that modern devices couldn't read.
Realizing that millions of other people must be in the same predicament, Jim started PeggyBank. Sadly, after the passing of his father, Jim inherited years of photographic and film memories from his Dad. Knowing how wonderful it was to relive and save these moments, Jim wanted to help other families get their cherished memories out of boxes and the attic and onto a modern, crisp, clear and easily shared digital format.
Jim had a successful career in a series of Internet ventures with Omaha Steaks, America Online, and Pear's Gourmet behind him. He knew first-hand how to bring cutting-edge technology to the marketplace in the most user-friendly way possible.
So Jim assembled a Dream Team of audio/visual experts, web designers, and marketers, including Marcia Kapustin. A pioneer in media production for politicians, professional sports teams, and rock stars, Marcia brings a wealth of talent, experience and passion to the task of preserving and sharing family memories.
