Mr. LATHAM. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to congratulate and recognize
Shane Greenleaf 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.

At UNI, Shane met his wife Jennifer, and together they have two children, Maya and Braxten. Today, Shane is the Vice President of Commercial Banking at First American Bank where he manages a $50 million loan portfolio. Shane's efforts in the last year have earned him and his organization numerous top lending awards. Outside of work, Shane is actively involved in leadership roles with Candeo and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Iowa. In both facets of his life, Mr. Greenleaf 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 Shane in the United States Congress and it is with great pride that I recognize and applaud Mr. Greenleaf 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 Shane 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.
