William Min ’90 serves as general counsel and executive vice president for the risk and business analytics division of RELX by day and as a volunteer emergency medical technician crew chief for the Westport Emergency Medical Service in Connecticut by night. Min was profiled by Corporate Counsel for his volunteer service.
Saturday nights are anything but typical for William Min, general counsel and executive vice president for the risk and business analytics division of RELX, which includes LexisNexis Risk Solutions and Reed Business Information.
Every other Saturday at 11 p.m., Min begins his eight-hour shift as a volunteer emergency medical technician crew chief for the Westport Emergency Medical Service in Connecticut. He typically works in Atlanta during the week and returns on the weekends to Westport, where his family lives. He’s been doing this for more than 21 years and has racked up more than 6,000 hours on the ambulance.
Corporate Counsel: What was it that motivated you initially to volunteer with EMT services?
William Min: I had been living in the community for a few years and there was an ad in the local paper that they were starting an EMT class. I thought it was important to give back and so I signed up to take the training class. For me, I think part of what’s important is for folks to be able to contribute back in a meaningful way. Volunteering not only provides personal satisfaction but I think it’s also a good example of how you can do things in your life to reach certain balances.
