Sheldon Lavin is the talented CEO and Chairman of the renowned food processing industry: OSI Group. He also serves as OSI International Foods Ltd.’s avid president. Sheldon achieved his current top position through years of struggle. Previously, Sheldon had a fruitful career in the banking industry where he was an executive and investor. In 1970, Sheldon organized financing for Otto & Sons, the former name of OSI Industries, LLC. The company wanted funds to establish a meat processing facility to become the major Midwest provider of hamburger to the famous Corporation of McDonald.

Sheldon’s bank requested him to claim a proprietorship position in the company. He denied the proposal because the meat processing industries dealings were not related to his consulting practice. Nevertheless, Sheldon accepted to be the company’s consultant and proposed that Otto & Sons should handle his financial investment like their assets if he became their partner.

Sheldon became significantly involved in the company’s operations and supervised foreign investments. When the owner of Otto & Sons retired, Sheldon became an associate with the owner’s sons. He decided to dedicate his time to grow the company by working on a full-time basis in the late 1970s. Sheldon’s efforts led to an expansion of the company’s operations across Europe and North America. He took half of the controlling interest in OSI Group when one of the associates sold his shares. Later, Sheldon became the sole owner of OSI Group when the other partner retired.
