A message from WEX President and CEO Melissa D. Smith
As the new President and CEO of WEX Inc., I anticipate a very exciting 2014. I have been part of the WEX family for 16 years and am very proud to lead a company that has achieved so much. After completing another successful year of expansion and development, WEX has secured its place as a global leader in corporate payment solutions.
A central aspect of the WEX mission is nurturing our stellar reputation as an engaged and responsible corporate citizen. In the WEX family, “social responsibility” is more than a phrase; it is a way of living, embodied in our history of giving back.
Although WEX has more than 1,400 associates worldwide, we have always been headquartered in the state of Maine, a place renowned for its solid work ethic and generosity of spirit. We hope that people of this state recognize WEX not only as a major employer, but as a friend and neighbor. We take great pride in our longstanding moral and financial support of schools, shelters, research centers, arts groups, and other organizations that help our community thrive. We at WEX want to send the unequivocal message that we care about the place we have chosen to make not only a living, but a life.
In 2013, WEX offered time, money, and expertise to dozens of worthy organizations, as we do every year. It is part of our obligation and our mission to pay attention to our workplace, our community, our future, and our planet.
