WEX And Joan Benoit Samuelson Partner For WEX Living Well Program

Stocks in this article: WXS

WEX Inc. (NYSE: WXS), a leading provider of corporate card payment solutions, today announced that it has established a formal partnership with Olympic gold medalist Joan Benoit Samuelson to provide support to WEX employees as part of its WEX Living well program. Benoit Samuelson is one of Maine’s most recognizable athletes and winner of the first women’s Olympic marathon.

“WEX has long been committed to supporting a healthy lifestyle and we are excited to partner with Joan to enhance WEX Living well for our employees and their families,” said Michael E. Dubyak, chairman, president and CEO at WEX. “Joan was a guest speaker at a WEX company meeting in 2012 where she encouraged our employees to set their own personal health goals. Her “ Run Your Own Race” talk stressed the importance of setting daily, attainable goals, monitoring your progress and adjusting your goals as your health and fitness levels improve. As a follow up to that talk, Joan led WEX employees on a 5k fun run that was very well attended. Her enthusiasm and increased involvement in 2013 will bring us closer to our goal of having all employees actively engaged in improving their health and well being. At WEX, we see caring for one another as empowering and our support of the WEX Living well program — and our partnership with Joan — further demonstrates the respect we have for all our associates.”

As the WEX Living well ambassador, Benoit Samuelson will support WEX and its employees as they work to achieve WELCOA platinum status — recognition awarded by the Wellness Council of America. The WELCOA platinum award is granted to organizations forging new ground by linking health promotion objectives to business outcomes.

“I am honored to partner with WEX to provide healthy insights to its employees via the next phase of WEX Living well,” said Benoit Samuelson. “A healthy lifestyle is not just about running and working out. It’s about making choices that lead to both a fulfilling and rewarding lifestyle.”
