Sheldon Lavin is the current OSI Group LLC chairman and CEO. The global food executive first got involved with OSI Group when he handled the finances of the Illinois based Otto and Sons Company which morphed to OSI Industries. Eventually, he became the owner of this company as he continued being involved with it.
Sheldon Lavin’s vision of OSI Group has always been for it to become a renowned food processing company. The founder of the organization has managed to do this by operating the meat processing franchise like a family. Although there are policies and regulations, administrative duties and budget restrictions to follow within the company, their approach has been family oriented.
This method is particularly fostered by allowing a free working atmosphere in the company where everyone feels at home. The corporate office even has lunch together. In addition to this, the CEO has an open door policy, and the company’s executives always pay attention to everyone. The food company’s employees don’t even have to address him by any formal terms. Although Mr.Lavin has a nurturing streak, the company’s talented and loyal employees enforce it. Currently, OSI Group employs approximately 20,000 employees worldwide.
In the future, Sheldon Lavin hopes that OSI Group will continue to grow into a world class profitable organization. Although he knows that he will retire one day, he hopes that the other talented and energetic people working for the company will propel it further. Currently, the organization has more than 70 facilities in 17 countries. The company primarily produces protein products and some baked goods, vegetable based products and sauces. The company is also involved with charitable organizations and it is passionate about giving back to the community.
