Loffler Companies’ Director of Information Technology leading impressive IT solutions team and expanding product and service offerings
James Loffler, Director of Information Technology Solutions at Loffler Companies, has been selected as a member of the (Real) Power 50 by Minnesota Business magazine, an annual list of remarkable professionals in the Minnesota business community.
Business executives named to the list are described as “the linchpins in the company, connectors in their industry, the heart of the operation and the ones who make things happen.” Nominees were selected by trusted individuals who suggested impressive leaders in their communities who were also “movers and shakers.” Each nominee was thoroughly evaluated and reference-checked before being named to the list. Winners will be showcased in the May 2014 issue of Minnesota Business and at a celebration event.
“To be selected as one of the (Real) Power 50 winners is certainly an honor. I feel fortunate to be part of an organization where everyone works together toward a common goal – serving our clients in the best way we can,” said James. “I couldn’t do this alone; it’s our team of the best and brightest that makes Loffler Companies successful.”
After graduating from the University of St. Thomas and starting his career at a telecommunications company for two years, James joined Loffler Companies in a beginning sales territory position in 2006. Earning the trust and confidence of his peers and management, he was named Director of Information Technology Solutions in 2013, and soon after promoted to be a member of Loffler Companies’ Senior Leadership Team.
“I couldn’t be more proud of what James has accomplished and the leadership role he has embraced at Loffler Companies,” said Jim Loffler, President and CEO, Loffler Companies. “His dedication to our clients and the team he works with contributes to the growth and success of this company every day.”
As an active member of the community, James helped lead the Loffler Tittsburgh Wheelers in the Hartford & RE/Max Breast Cancer Bicycle Ride last August. The team rode 100 miles as part of the event and raised $11,000 for the charity. Loffler Companies supports many other great causes which James is part of including the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure (Gold Sponsor), American Cancer Society, Ronald McDonald House, VEAP (Volunteers Enlisted to Assist People), Memorial Blood Centers, Cornerstone, thinkPINKkids, Feed My Starving Children, Catholic Charities, St. Joseph’s Home for Children and more. A family-owned and nationally recognized leader in business technology and service since 1986, Loffler Companies has a history of giving back to the community, recently winning the prestigious Jefferson Award for Public Service.
James’ direction contributes to a work environment that has earned Loffler distinctions from Inc. 5000 magazine as a Fastest Growing Private Companies in America for six consecutive years. Loffler employees respond to his leadership and guidance, completing surveys that have earned the company a place on the StarTribune’s “Top Workplace” list and Minnesota Business magazine’s “100 Best Places to Work in Minnesota.”
