Sheldon Lavin is the CEO of the multibillion-dollar food processing company known as the OSI Group, but his success in the food industry was aided by his professional experience in other areas before being employed by Otto and Sons, the OSI Group’s original name. Before the OSI Group, Sheldon worked in the financial, banking, and investment industries and was hired by Otto and Son’s in the 1970’s as a consultant to help expand the company. By the mid-1980’s, Sheldon has helped expand the company to three different countries, worked his way up to partner, and eventually purchased a controlling interest in the company to take over as the new CEO.
Since Sheldon Lavin was hired onto the OSI Group, the company has expanded operations to 17 different countries and currently employs over twenty thousand people. Due to Sheldon’s unique philosophy of treating employees like family, the OSI Group as a whole has a low turnover rate as most employees choose to stay with the company for years. In addition to having such success in the inner workings of the company, Sheldon Lavin has been at the helm for several different internationally recognized awards for the OSI Group. In 2016, Sheldon Lavin and the entire OSI Group were awarded the Global Visionary Award for their outstanding dedication to growing as an entity, due to Sheldon’s hard work expanding the company into what it is now.
