Sheldon Lavin, Chairman and CEO of OSI Group, LLC

Sheldon Lavin’s meat and food processing industry was not built in a single day. However, it has taken years of stages and redefinition to become what it is by now, for this reason, it is important to develop facilitated business capabilities that never mean the same thing every day. This is an industry whose leadership has survived for over four decades through all stages of development. When Sheldon Lavin entered the field, he had a limited capability to accept leadership skills. He didn’t know how to manage a typical food and meat processing company like OSI Group. However, his skill in management and business has propelled the company to greater heights of growth and development.

Before Sheldon Lavin joined the OSI Group of Companies, he was working as a financial consultant in his firm. He supplied the necessary funds to support the two owners of the OSI group to succeed in business. However, it was not enough for the two brothers. Their skills in business and management were poor. This is the reason why business was running out of hand. They, therefore, requested Sheldon Lavin to take over the management and ownership of the company. However, he declined because all he wanted is to offer financial solutions rather getting involved in the actual business. When he saw that the two brothers were serious about their mission, he decided to take over the management of the company. In the end, he delivered the company from the hands of the losers.

Sheldon Lavin has worked to gain success as a trusted food and meat processing company with over 20,000 employees. The company has its presence in more than 16 countries with a reported number of 60 facilities by now. This is a massive amount of success for someone who was not willing to take up leadership in this industry. Sheldon Lavin is also happy with the corporate culture and employees who work with to achieve the dream of the company. We have a unique culture in the business that separates our mode of business and technology. The reason why OSI Group of Companies succeeds is that of customer satisfaction.
