Jim Loffler, Loffler Companies Founder and CEO, Named to the Minnesota 500 List of the Most Powerful Leaders for Second Consecutive Year

Driven by the same mission and focus for the past 33 years, Jim Loffler is recognized for his leadership and drive to help clients and his employees succeed, as well as giving back to the community.

Jim Loffler, founder of Loffler Companies, has been recognized as one of the 500 Most Powerful Business Leaders in Minnesota by Greenspring Media, a division of Minnesota Monthly, for the second year in a row. To evaluate how powerful and influential the considered leaders were, evaluators looked at their record of innovation and legacy, dedication and passion, industry drivers and community contributions.

The Minnesota 500 began as a list of more than 7,000 executives across multiple industries in the state of Minnesota. After months of research and extensive use of existing databases on behalf of this organization’s editors, they culled this down to the Top 500. They used a host of criteria in the process, looking at everything from the impact each executive has on their industry as a whole, the success and impact the company itself has under his leadership, special awards or accolades in the executives’ professional and personal lives, participation in community and philanthropic endeavors, position on other boards, and several other factors.

“I am humbled and very honored to be recognized as a top Minnesota business leader. Since I started Loffler Companies in 1986, I have focused on listening to clients, learning what their needs were, and working to build solutions to make their businesses run better and help them succeed,” explained Loffler. “Our success is only possible because of our passionate team who takes pride in exceeding the expectations of our clients, our community and each other.”

Loffler’s mission has remained the same; “We are an independent professional services organization dedicated to providing superior managed IT solutions, office technologies and services. The foundation of our success is based on exceeding the expectations of our clients, employees, partners and community.”

Jim’s leadership contributes to a work environment that has earned Loffler distinctions from Inc. 5000 magazine as a Fastest Growing Private Companies in America for 10 consecutive years. Loffler employees respond to his leadership and guidance, completing surveys that have earned the company a place on the Star Tribune’s “Top Workplace” list for nine consecutive years and Minneapolis St Paul Business Journal’s “Best Places to Work” for four years in a row.

A family-owned and nationally recognized leader in business technology and service, Loffler Companies has a 33-year history of giving back to the community, supporting many great causes including Ronald McDonald House, Susan G Komen Race for the Cure, Special Olympics Minnesota, Coco’s Heart Dog Rescue, Memorial Blood Center, Hope for Children, Feed My Starving Children, and more.
