Mr. LATHAM. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to congratulate and recognize
Howard Tempero for being named a 2013 Forty Under 40 honoree by the
award-winning central Iowa publication, Business Record.
Since 2000, Business Record has undertaken an exhaustive annual review to identify a standout group of young leaders in the Greater Des Moines area who are making an impact in their communities and their careers. Each year, forty up-and-coming community and business leaders under 40 years of age are selected for this prestigious distinction, which is based on a combined criteria of community involvement and success in their chosen career field. The 2013 class of Forty Under 40 honorees join an impressive roster of 560 business leaders and growing.
Howard Tempero has been with Spindustry Digital for five years and currently serves as the Experience Design Strategist, in which he works with clients on website design and digital promotional material, among other online messages. After professional stints in Chicago and New York, Howard chose to bring his skill and expertise back to his home state. Since returning to the Des Moines area, Mr. Tempero has generated millions of dollars for Spindustry Digital and remains heavily involved in his community through the Rotary Club of Des Moines AM. Last year, Howard was recognized as a finalist for the NOVA Award from the American Marketing Association for his outstanding professional efforts. Outside of the office, Howard enjoys spending time with his wife, Megan, and their two daughters, Islalucia and Aristella, and two sons, Rezin and Corbet. In all facets of his life, Howard is an example of hard work and service that our state can be proud of.
Mr. Speaker, it is a profound honor to represent leaders like Howard in the United States Congress and it is with great pride that I recognize and applaud Mr. Tempero for utilizing his talents to better both his community and the great state of Iowa. I invite my colleagues in the House to join me in congratulating Howard on receiving this esteemed designation, thanking those at Business Record for their great work, and wishing each member of the 2013 Forty Under 40 class continued success.
