Sheldon Lavin has been working his career in the OSI Group for forty-seven years since he stepped into the firm. He is in the position of the chief executive officer and is also the president of the firm. The OSI Group Company is headquartered in Aurora in Illinois. The firm is majorly involved in meat processing as is provided meat products to the retailers and consumers around the world.
Sheldon has a broader profile in his professional career. He was initially working as an executive in the banking systems and was an investor as well. He had developed his own financial consulting industry before he joined the meat processing world. He came in to join a then so small hamburger supplier to McDonald, owned by two brothers, Otto sons. Through his tireless work, he transformed the business into what it is today-a global leader in meat products supply.
Sheldon met with the two brothers when working at a financial institution. The brothers had come to look for funding. The bank came up with the idea of him joining in partnership with Otto’s sons. He was reluctant at first but agreed on the condition that they will have an equal amount of leverage as the two brothers. Later in the year 1975, he became more interested in the business and started searching for market potential of the business in other countries. Sheldon was pleased with the culture and strategies in the company and did not hesitate when the McDonald requested him to join in full for him to continue working with them. The firm was now under the new name-OSI Group and began immediately to expand into the Europe, South Africa, and Taiwan and in the North America.
Around the 1980s, Sheldon was able to acquire the half the control of the firm’s finances as one of the partners decided to sell out his share. This went on only for a little longer when the other partner retired. Sheldon was now the full controller of the entire business interests and the sole owner of the firm. His ambitions were to transform the business into a much bigger one. OSI Group continued to enter into new markets in Philippines, India Australia China and Japan.
Currently, OSI Group has become the top in the provision of protein food supplements in the whole world. There are more than fifty-five branches in more than sixteen countries. The tremendous success of the company is credited to Sheldon’s strong educational background in accounting and finance together with his longtime experience in the field.
