Sheldon Lavin is the current Chairman and the Chief Executive Officer of OSI Group, a company that is the global leader in food supplies in major retail outlets.

Sheldon came to know the activities of OSI Group as an outsider and he never knew that he could end up serving in such a prestigious position. In 1970, he had already started to be involved in the group’s operations. During that period, the company was called Otto & Sons Company and it was owned as well as managed by Otto and his two sons.
Sheldon Lavin’s History at the Company
In 1970, the company was full of great potential and they got an opportunity to supply Hamburger to McDonald’s Corporation. The company was going through a very rough financial path and they could not manage to deliver anything. They decided to look for a consultant to chart the way forward. His contributions were immense and they were able to get financing from great institutions. That was the beginning of their expansions and they felt they owed Sheldon.
BY 1975, Sheldon had become a regular person at the company and he became actively involved in the company’s leadership. He worked at helping the business expand to other continents and it was during this period when Otto decided to retire. Sheldon agreed to continue partnering with the sons for the company’s success. As a result, the company was able to change from Otto & Sons to Osi Group. The company through the active involvement of Sheldon Lavin started penetrating internationally. Some of the countries they managed to expand to during that period are South Africa, North America, Europe, Australia, the Philippines, Taiwan, Asia and also Japan.
After helping the company spread to all those countries, Sheldon Lavin managed to purchase 100% voting control of the company and thus taking over the position of the chairman. He managed to change how the food and meat processing industry used to operate. The company has since then started specializing in large-scale operations.
Sheldon Lavin works under the collaboration of focused individuals who are passionate about career growth as well as success. He has managed to enhance teamwork across the whole industry.
