Lavin Sheldon has earned himself a reputable profile in the food and meat business. He is the current chief executive officer and chairman of the American close corporation for meat processors- OSI Group. Lavin has had a great journey in the meat industry in which he was introduced to over four decades ago when he coordinated funding for Otto & Sons-OSI Industries former company. Otto & Sons had favorable happenings to create a meat processing facility and in turn become the sole supplier of hamburgers to McDonald’s Corporation in the Midwest area; however, they were short of funding.
Lavin was skeptical about venturing into a new business as he feared it had little or no relation to his consulting practice at the time. He, therefore, declined the initial request by the bank to assume an ownership position at OSI. He was later swayed into assuming the consultant role. Lavin held McDonald’s work ethic in high esteem and so when he was asked to join OSI Group full time, he immediately accepted. Through his foresight and great supervision, the company experienced a rapid rate of growth and expanded from a local food processing enterprise into a global representation of business success with over 60 locations in 16 different countries.
As a result of his great achievement in the meat business venture, Lavin Sheldon recently received a Global Visionary Award from India’s Vision World Academy. This award acknowledges people with futuristic and original ideas in several working departments who acted on their goals and managed to turn their dreams into reality through exercising determination and perseverance to achieve their goals.
OSI-vista is an OSI Group owned company that operates about eight different locations in India. The company was acquired by OSI Group in 1995 and has been honored by the Academy to acknowledge their efforts.
After attaining a prosperous career in finance, the affluent food executive has gathered extensive proficiency in the food industry and enabled him to become the mogul he is today. This global company under Lavin’s supervision has received a substantial list of environmental and sustainability awards. Lavin hopes to influence the coming generation of entrepreneurs and corporate leaders to devote themselves to expanding their organization’s in an executive manner while promoting international trade and offering opportunities to their colleagues to enable them to impact change in the coming generation.
