Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the OSI Group, Sheldon Lavin, has been with the company since 1970 when it was still Otto & Sons. His leadership and vision have helped OSI to grow quickly from a domestic food processing company into an international company that has been named one of the top 100 businesses by Forbes. He was awarded a Global Visionary Award in 2016 by India’s Vision World Academy and, previously, was honored with a 2015 Lifetime Achievement Award by RSM US LLP for his service and work in the Chicago business world. While Lavin has talked about high-hopes for the next generation of leaders in OSI, he has no plans of going anywhere anytime soon.
Sheldon Lavin strategically plans out any purchases, acquisitions, or joint ventures that he and OSI Group take part in. He places a high value in innovations that are sustainable and green, and he ensures that OSI Group always maintains a sustainable business model that includes taking responsibility for its business practices within the communities that it serves. With a workforce of over 20,000 employees, OSI is becoming a world leader for its environmentally friendly, sustainable, and green business model, and Lavin, at age 85, plans on doing his absolute best during his life to make sure that his company maintains a sustainable supply chain, reduces its environmental impact, and is socially responsible wherever its plants or factories exist.
Sheldon Lavin is proud to work in a company that is not run like a typical company of its size. While he acknowledges there are rules to follow as well as budget limits, he maintains that OSI Group operates more like a family than a regular business and that the culture there is one that nurtures and encourages its employees to express their opinions and be the best version of themselves as possible to learn more about us: http://www.amickfarms.com/corpresponsibility.html click here.
Apart from his work with OSI, Sheldon Lavin generously donates his time to many different charitable organizations, and one of these that is closest to his heart is the Ronald Mcdonald House Charities.
