Peter Loftin Has Benn Honoured Several Times for His Contribution to Telecom Industry

 

Peter Loftin has been a notable name in telecom business in USA and has always been appreciated and honoured for the same. He came into light in 1983 after he established BTI that soon became one of the topmost telecom companies in the country. That time, he was very young, in his twenties, and he became a business star. But this did not come overnight, as he had dreamt of it from the time he used to sell telephones from door to door.

After his success in business, he never looked back and kept on moving ahead of many others who were in the same race. Yet, he never considered himself as a part of any race and kept himself distinguished just like his ideas and innovations. Peter Loftin was titled as North Carolina Entrepreneur of the Year by Business North Carolina Magazine.

He was also recognized by James B. Hunt, the then Governor of North Carolina, for his social contributions.

The business successes did not end for Peter Loftin and in 1999, he drew a revenue of $400 million from BTI. He served to be the chairman of BTI for a long time and the board members at that time were reputed business owners. Leading a team of well-educated, innovative, talented and rich people was a pride. Loftin never had a business background and therefore it could have been tough for him to make a place in the industry without any backup. But he managed to overcome every problem and achieved success of next level.
