A Message From WEX Chairman & CEO
Michael E. Dubyak
Twenty-nine years ago, a tiny Maine company appeared
quietly on the business scene with a handful of employees,
one fleet fueling card, three customers, and a big dream.
With the vision, drive, and skill of a dedicated workforce, that
dream became WEX Inc..
WEX is now a leading international provider of
B2B physical, digital and virtual card product solutions. Like
most influential companies, we could be headquartered
almost anywhere in the world. But our home, and our
inspiration, is Maine, a place known for natural beauty,
genuine hospitality, and a strong work ethic. It is a place
where a corporation can feel like a family.
At WEX we believe that our "family" extends
far beyond the defined footprint of our headquarters. We
understand we live in a larger community to which we
feel a profound sense of commitment and gratitude. This
community is where we raise our children, support our
schools, reach out to the needy, and nurture our souls
through the arts. It is not merely our obligation to contribute
to the life of our community, it is our privilege.
The social responsibility of a company is often measured in
dollars and cents. WEX has donated hundreds of
thousands of dollars every year to fund scholarships, civic
programs, leadership conferences, lecture series, the arts and
other charitable organizations that help our community flourish.
Social responsibility is also measured in volunteer efforts.
Whether serving on a non-profit board or just giving of one's
time to a community project, it's the giving back, however
one chooses to do so, that is important. At WEX the
phrase "corporate social responsibility" is deeply ingrained
and deeply personal. Our commitment to supporting a vibrant,
thriving community honors our humble beginnings and shapes
our collective future. Most of all, it reflects our values.
