Raining Rose, Inc. (UPIC: Raini224) COO Mike Wehr has been selected as one of this year’s honorees of the Corridor Business Journal’s Forty Under 40 Awards. The annual Forty under 40 Awards recognize 40 business leaders under age 40 who have made a difference in the Cedar Rapids-Iowa City Corridor. Nominations were taken in late summer and the honorees were chosen by a panel of the previous year’s winners.

“I am flattered by the nomination and award, but I deserve very little of the credit,” says Wehr. “We have an unbelievable team at Raining Rose that works incredibly hard to make our leadership team look great. I also am lucky to have an amazing wife who is selflessly supportive of all the different endeavors I am currently involved in. Without the support of all these individuals, my name would not be on this list.”

Judy Lubben, Raining Rose chief financial officer and vice president of administration, nominated Wehr for the award. “Mike has the ability to work side by side with people at all levels of the company with great respect to each and every person and position,” she says. “It is not often that someone gets the pleasure to work with such a dynamic person.”

Wehr is also involved in the community, serving as an alumni board member at Mount Mercy University, as well as working with the Cedar Rapids Downtown Rotary and United Way. He will lead the March of Dimes Walk for Babies in 2016.
