There is a common saying about the winners that states,
“A winner is a dreamer who never gives up.”
The name of Peter Loftin will always be on the list of the dreamers who dared to see a dream and put his best efforts to make that dream come true. Paving his stones through a lot of hard work, enthusiasm and of course intelligence – a commoner of the United States has made his way to be one of the most successful business owners in the country.
He is considered to be the star of North Carolina and never left a single stone unturned to make the place and its people take pride in the fact that Peter belonged to the place. North Carolina was not only his birthplace, but that is the place from where he has got his education from.
Family and Early Life
It is often said that the reflection of humbleness and generosity in a human character is often deep-rooted in their early lives. The more simple background a person comes from, his actions after he becomes successful, gets reflected in his works. For Peter Loftin, his journey was deep-rooted in his background.
He was born in a simple family residing in North Carolina. His mother, Maree Nelson Loftin was an Elementary School teacher. His father, on the other hand, was Robert G. Loftin was a Korean War veteran. He was retired personnel from US Government Social Security Administration. When he was associated with the administrative work, he negotiated the Union Contract for all the Social Security Administration employees.
Evidently, his family was extremely simple, and that is why his humanitarian morals were always healthy. He went into doing a number charitable works in his career with the same values he received from his childhood. Now, apart from being a business tycoon and a thoroughly popular man, he is also a family man. He has a 19-year old boy with his ex-wife along with two other children who live with Peter. They all belong to one happy family just like he was in his childhood days.
Charity work of the Unsung Hero
Peter has not started his charitable work to popularize himself, or he never did it for making it a point of media attention. His early works of charity stand to prove the fact.
While he was in his twenties, he started a campaign called “Coats for Kids”. The primary purpose of the campaign was to provide winter coats to the underprivileged children during the winter holidays. There were not two or three children, but Peter Loftin made sure that thousands of needy and deserted children can feel the warmth during the chilled winter of the United States.
Another notable charitable contribution of his early career needs to be mentioned here. He was the father figure of BTI, Business Telecom Inc. It is undoubtedly one of the top telecommunication networks in the nation. Being a responsible education enthusiast, he showed his generosity by providing the disabled rural schools of North Carolina with free internet service. The NCEITA, the North Carolina Electronics and Information Technologies Association, gave him the award “Corporate Citizen of the Year Award” for this significant contribution.
Undoubtedly, the successful entrepreneur, rather business tycoon, everyone is aware of, Peter Loftin has found his encouragement and inspiration from his simple life, and he never forgot to give it back to his hometown. His very acts define his core humanity underneath his hardcore corporate entity.
