A purpose driven man with no self-interest can well describe Sheldon Lavin. His vision for OSI Group is always to see it continue serving world-class outcomes with profitable growth. OSI is one of the largest company dealing with manufacturing and packaging of top meat and food products.
Sheldon Lavin has been part of OSI for the last 43 years when he started working as a financial consultant but with a future vision of being part of a business he owned. Currently, he is the CEO of OSI Group, something we can term as “a dream come true” for Sheldon. He became an active business member of OSI group in 1975 when its owner by the name Otto retired. OSI name came up after Sheldon acquired the company from Otto. OSI Group used to be a great supplier of hamburgers to the McDonald Corporation, but during this time it was financially challenged and was unable to offer these services.
This was like the right time for Sheldon Lavin to be part of OSI entirely. With his financial and accounting skills, he helped OSI Group acquire funds from financial institutions. Sheldon has always been focused on the success of the company ever since he became part of it. Through hard work, Sheldon has managed to expand the OSIs market through to Europe, Australia, Asia, Japan, North America and South America through the acquisition of other food outlets in these regions. OSI is currently with some 20000 employees who work all around the world in these outlets.
Sheldon Lavin has been working with principles which ensure OSI is always on the lead. With him as the CEO, OSI has been awarded the Globe of Honor Award by British Safety Council on 20th February 2016. Sheldon has not been left behind in the success of OSI as he has also been receiving awards of participation in different institutions. For instance, he has awards for Board Member of Rush University Medical Centre, Board Member of the Goodman Theatre and also Trustee for Ronald McDonald House Charities.
Sheldon Lavin believes in giving back to the society through charities in helping the sick children. With organizations like the Ronald McDonald House Charities, he has been able to accomplish this.
