Mr. LATHAM. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to congratulate and recognize
Jonathan Brendemuehl 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.
Originally from Illinois, Jonathan Brens Moines home with his partner Christopher Diebel. Mr. Brendemuehl, 26, serves as the Marketing Events Coordinator for Bankers Trust Co. In this role, Jonathan manages Bankers Trust's involvement in more than 125 annual events. Outside of his career, Mr. Brendemuehl serves as president of the Downtown Neighborhood Association and is actively involved in the Des Moines Symphony and Des Moines Community Playhouse. Jonathan's passion for his career and his community sets an example that our state can be proud of.
Mr. Speaker, it is a profound honor to represent leaders like Jonathan in the United States Congress and it is with great pride that [[Page E245]] I recognize and applaud Mr. Brendemuehl 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 Jonathan 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.
