Currently, Sheldon Lavin is offering his services as the CEO of OSI Groups. A company over the years has been able to keep their reputation in being the best when it comes to manufacturing and packaging of the meat and food products. The company is based in Aurora, Illinois. The first time that Sheldon Lavin joined the firm he didn’t know much feeling like an outsider. However, things changed in the 1970s as he became active in the company activities at the time the company name was Otto & Sons, and the owners were the sons of Mr. Otto.
In the 1970s the potential that Otto and Sons had was evident. In fact, that time they had the chance of being able to acquire the reputation of being the largest supplier of hamburgers in the McDonald’s Corporation. The sad thing is that at the time things were not going well and they could not deliver. That was a clear indication that Sheldon Lavin needed and he stepped in to become the financial advisor of the company. He changed things around to acquire the growth they have now. After a while, he became actively involved in the company, and he didn’t just offer the company with financial advice. He assisted the company in the investment and sourcing of new business overseas. It was the same time that Mr. Otto retired and Sheldon decided that he was going to partner with the sons.
He put in a lot of commitment and hard work to ensure that the operations that OSI Group handled expanded across parts of the country. Soon after that, he got the controlling interest, and the company became his. Sheldon Lavin has been able to change the view people have when it comes to the meat and food processing industry. He has gained the needed understanding of the large-scale operations that will help the companies in being able to manage supply chains that are complex. Sheldon Lavin seeks help from others because he believes that without the support of teamwork he would not have achieved everything alone. The enforced collaboration in the company has helped in the reduction of turnover from the time he started managing the company.
