Sheldon Lavin Makes OSI Group Amazing

Sheldon Lavin is a well-known name in the food processing industry. In the business since 1970, he helped finance the OSI Group. It started when a company called Otto and Sons were given the unique opportunity to supply meat for the McDonald’s Corporation. They couldn’t afford to build the facility they would need to take on the job. After they courted him for a while Lavin finally agreed to help in 1975. McDonald’s requested he go full time with the business now called OSI and so he did. The business was now owned by the Otto brothers and he became their full-time partner.

Over the years the company grew immensely and is now an international food procession company. In fact, the company started as a small time supplier of burgers and grew into what it is today. It is now the largest company that supplies McDonald’s in network.

Under Sheldon Lavin as a CEO, the company has grown to over twenty thousand employees across the world. He has prided himself on being able to retain employees and creating a family atmosphere for his employees. There are headquarters for the OSI group in Austrailia, China, India, and thirteen other countries with over fifty locations.

He’s been honored with awards for accomplishing so much with OSI Group and focuses on being a charitable leader and keeping the company environmentally friendly. A big part of his overall plan for the company is based on his beliefs that sustainability is the key to running a successful company. This means he looks at everything from a social and environmental lens as well as factoring in economics.

Among the many hats he is happy to wear within his company, he also is a trustee for Ronald McDonald House Charities, a board member of Rush University Medical Center, and President of The Sheba Foundation. Though he’s well past retiring age, he shows no signs of slowing down and enjoys working with and for his successful company. He’s a charitable CEO and unlike a lot of the company heads out there, it’s why so many people love working for OSO Group and Sheldon Lavin.
