There is not necessarily a position that can prepare you to be a capable Chief Executive Officer. Most people who fill this critical role in a corporation’s leadership structure have qualifications such as previous leadership experience, a good sense of how to develop strategy and solve big picture problemS and the ability to learn as they go in tense situations. Sheldon Lavin, the Chief Executive Officer of a company that is known as the OSI Group has all of thesequalities in droves.
OSI Group is a global corporation that supplies critical food products to a wide variety of businesses and brands. OSI Group started out as a company that largely provided supplies to the international fast food chain McDonalds however under the leadership of its current Chief Executive Officer Sheldon Lavin the company was able to grow beyond that point and take its expertise to other businesses and marketplaces. Under Sheldon Lavin’s capable leadership OSI Group has grown to be an international food company that employs 20,000 people across the world but the OSI Group did not start out this way. Before Sheldon Lavin assumed the role of Chief Executive Officer OSI Group was a company that was known as Otto and Sons that Sheldon Lavin worked with as a consultant.
As a consultant Sheldon Lavin helped the company grow and take on an important role as a regional supplier for McDonald’s restaurants that were located in the Mid-west at the time. Eventually Sheldon took on a more involved role in the company and he became a full-time staff member as the company transitioned from being a family business to a large corporation with a global reach. Before Lavin came to OSI Group he worked as a banker in the world of financial services.
