Bill Yun does a lot more hugging these days.
The president of Fiduciary Trust International, which lost 87 employees on Sept. 11, 2001, saw his third child born earlier this year.
"For someone bringing a child into the world after 9/11, (it) might have brought additional fear and anxiety, but I have a renewed sense of hope and inspiration to share with my entire family," Mr. Yun said.
"I hug my wife and children just a little bit longer."
Mr. Yun and two colleagues, at a client meeting in New Jersey when a jet struck the company's Manhattan offices, rushed to FTI's backup site at an unidentified location in New Jersey. He spent the next two days there, trying to get the firm running again.
Mr. Yun said the terrorist attacks forged closer bonds between employees; retired employees came back to pitch in, and clients called and offered their support as well.
"Being part of the Fiduciary family during this time has enabled me to be stronger for my own family as well," he added.
