In the world of food and meat services, Sheldon Lavin is a titan in the industry, acting as the prototype for many young entrepreneurs seeking to leave their mark. While Mr. Lavin’s status in the meat and food services industry is unquestioned today, he entered the business having very little intimate knowledge of the intricacies. Today, Mr. Lavin is the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of OSI Group, which is one of the preeminent corporations involved in food services. It was in 1970 that Mr. Lavin got his start in food services when he was asked by the bank to locate funding for an up and coming meat processing company called Otto and Son’s. It was due to Mr. Lavin’s knowledge of the banking industry that made him the prime candidate to help close the deal. Upon receiving the funding, Otto and Son’s would create a new meat processing company that would allow them to become the midwestern meat supplier for McDonald’s Corporation.

Mr. Lavin was asked to join Otto and Son’s as an executive to help improve relations between all parties, and although he initially declined, he agreed to become a long-term consultant. In declining to join Otto and Son’s initially, Mr. Lavin was also aware of incredible potential being a part of the company held and negotiated a caveat that stated that he would be able to join at a later date if he became interested. While working as a consultant for Otto and Son’s he became a more integral part in the overseas operations of the company, and eventually decided to take Otto and Son’s up on their initial offer to join the company on a full-time basis. After becoming a full-time executive at Otto and Son’s, which would later become OSI Group, Mr. Lavin launched a campaign that led to a rapid expansion for the company. Under the direction of Mr. Lavin OSI Group quickly became a multinational company, setting up offices in places such as South Africa, Australia, the Philippines, and Japan.

A the ripe age of 81, Sheldon Lavin is still involved in the daily workings of OSI Group, which now employs over 20,000 people in 60 countries around the world. Because of his incredible track record, Mr. Lavin continues to build upon his supreme level of prestige, recently receiving the Global Visionary Award from India’s Vision World Academy.
