The internationally known food processing company the OSI Group owes its amazing growth over the past four decades to its visionary CEO Sheldon Lavin. After a successful career as a banker and the owner of an accounting firm, Lavin used his degrees in accounting and finance and his years of experience to make the former meat market into a global brand. One with a presence in almost 90 countries and the winner of countless awards for food quality, worker safety and excellent management of the environmental impact that his company’s food production facilities have.
But Sheldon Lavin is much more than just a talented, successful businessman, he is also a caring human being who has created a warm, family atmosphere at his company and supports a wide range of charitable causes and organizations around the globe. Two organizations to which he generously gives his time are the National Fish & Wildlife Foundation, where he is director, and Rush University Medical Center, where Lavin is general trustee. Plus, he is a loving husband and father and spends a great deal of time making his grandchildren happy. The octogenarian does all of this while remaining involved in the day-to-day operations of the OSI Group.
At the OSI Group Lavin is a beloved chief executive who maintains an open door policy to encourage his staff to share their ideas and concerns with him. He also regularly has meals with his employees and is on a first name basis with most of them. Many consider Sheldon Lavin to be the ideal role model for modern business executives. He and his company have also won numerous awards. One of the most recent is the 2016 Global Visionary award bestowed on him by the World Vision Academy. The organization, which is based in India, cited his decades of work transforming his company into a major force in the food production industry as their reason for choosing him.
Lavin extended the OSI Group’s presence worldwide by building state-of-the-art food processing facilities and acquiring companies like Flagship Europe, Baho Food and Amick Farms.
