WEX in the news


Growth is the most defining characteristic of WEX, and we owe the bulk of that growth to our relentless capacity for innovation and to our people, who power it. Both have been in the news this past month. Here’s a quick glance at some recent highlights:

Our fearless leaders

  • As CEO of a company that perennially wins awards for being a great place to work, Melissa Smith was tapped by to share some of her leadership strategies for improving company culture. (One of her tips? “Model the behavior you want to see in your employees.”)
  • The Glass Hammer interviewed Kim Ford, our senior legal director of Asia Pacific and global issuing, about how she blends two career disciplines to forge her own successful path.
  • PaymentsSource explored the ways in which health savings accounts (HSAs) are being used as recruitment tools, interviewing WEX Health’s VP of human resources, Sherry Olson, for the article.
