MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- 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. 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 countless months of research and extensive use of existing databases on behalf of this organizations 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 had/is having on their industry as a whole (both in his/her current role and prior roles), the success and impact the company itself has had/is having under his/her leadership, special awards or accolades both in the executives' professional and/or personal lives, participation in community/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 1986, when I started Loffler Companies in my garage, I have focused on listening to clients, learning what their needs were, and working to build solutions to make their businesses run better," commented Jim Loffler.
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 eight consecutive years and Minneapolis St Paul Business Journal's "Best Places to Work" for two years in a row.
