Sheldon Lavin: Being Successful in the Food Industry

Sheldon Lavin is the current chairman and chief executive officer of the OSI Group, LLC. Which is the world’s largest supplier of protein products, food services, and retail products. His career with the food industry began 40 years ago, and through his leadership, OSI Group, LLC managed to expand to over 17 countries, and their products are known for their award winning taste and quality. Despite the time that Sheldon Lavin have spent working in the food industry, it was not his first choice of career. It was actually an accident why Sheldon Lavin found working with the OSI Group, LLC.

Back when he was still in the financial world, Sheldon Lavin used to own a financial consulting firm which aids small and medium sized businesses in looking for a bank that would help them with their finances. The founders of OSI Group, LLC, known back then as Otto & Sons, have visited his financial consulting firms in the 1970s because they needed more funds, as the company was chosen by McDonald’s to be one of their official suppliers of burger patties. Sheldon Lavin spoke with the owners and decided to contact a bank that is also a partner of his financial consulting firm. The banks left a condition that in order for them to release the funds that the company needs, Sheldon Lavin must be given an ownership position at Otto & Sons. Finding that he is too busy working inside his office, Sheldon Lavin rejected condition. The bank amended the condition and wrote that Sheldon Lavin must be given a financial investment that has a degree comparable to the Otto family. Sheldon Lavin accepted the new deal, and he started his journey in the food industry, although he is working indirectly.

Otto & Sons grew from a medium sized company into a large corporation. It has also rebranded into OSI Group, LLC, and it is still growing. The patriarch of the Otto family who originally founded company decided to step down from his position and gave it to his sons. However, the sons of the Otto family patriarch have also stated their will of living a simple life away from the corporate world, so they sold their remaining stakes to Sheldon Lavin, and had him lead the company.
