Only a few entrepreneurs live to enjoy the fruits of their so-called tough journey when it comes to careers-success. For the likes of Sheldon Lavin, entrepreneurship is a path that they have its blueprint. Sheldon is among the few talented individuals whose stay in the business world has always been filled with success. Today, Sheldon is celebrated for his outward contribution towards OSI Group.
The talented fellow serves as OSI’s CEO. Besides, Sheldon serves as the chairman of the board of the company. OSI is a private company based in Aurora, Illinois. However, with Lavin onboard, the company’s operations surpass that of most public entities in the game. Today, OSI Group is celebrated for being a leader in the meat processing business as well as food services.
When it comes to experience, Sheldon boasts of holding more than what is needed. The talented CEO owns more than 47 years of experience in the meat processing game. This experience places Sheldon in a better position to steer OSI Group to an incredible level. Previously, Sheldon used to serve in the investing and banking sector where he held an executive role. Sheldon also managed a financial consulting firm of his own which boasted his understanding of business as a whole.
Sheldon joined OSI when it was just a small company supplying at McDonald’s. However, within no time and under Sheldon’s tenure, OSI Group has grown into a global platform with a credible reputation.
Sheldon’s life in the meat industry runs back to the 70s while he was still working in the finance sector. Otto and Sons were in dire need of financial support which saw them approach Sheldon with a promising deal. The engagement saw Sheldon acquire a leadership position at the company, little did he know it was to be his career breakthrough. Within a short time, Sheldon was getting more involved with the group as he was a talented asset.
Over time, and with the aid of Sheldon, OSI Group had gone beyond the borders to North America, Taiwan, and Europe.

Today, OSI Group is named as a leading supplier of proteins around the world. The company has over 55 facilities in 16 countries. However, Sheldon insists that the numbers are likely to skyrocket in the future.
