Sheldon Lavin is the Chief executive Officer and Chairman of OSI Group which is a company that deals with meat and food processing and is currently the largest food provider globally.

In the 1980s, he took over OSI Group as he purchased a monitoring interest and has never looked back since then. His experience as an investor and executive in the banking sector placed him strategically to being in that particular position at OSI Group. The OSI Group is in 17 nations and owns 65 facilities with 20,000 employees, and this means the involvement of a lot of management work. In that case, the contribution of Sheldon Lavin in his position and the success that has been realized over the years in the company has brought him out as a hardworking and dedicated individual in the food processing industry both locally and internationally. Under his management, poultry became a new product line to be introduced which as well led to the purchase of a poultry company. Having been started from a humble beginning and in a foreign country by immigrants, the OSI Group has come a long way in its achievements.
For his hard work and activities over the years especially in OSI Group, Sheldon Lavin has been presented with a Global Visionary Award by India’s Vision World Academy. He has as well overseen the recognition of OSI Group as a company being honoured with awards for preserving the environment and sustainability. In that case, he is concerned about whoever will take over his position when the time comes, and he hopes that he will continue with his good work and as well be committed to the group’s success. In addition to his remarkable successes in his career, he is as well keen on giving back to the society. Sheldon Lavin creates time to be part of charities which include the Ronald McDonald House Charities, Jewish United Fund and Boys and Girls Clubs of Chicago. With such involvement, he gets viewed from a different perspective other than the office person he seems to be throughout. With his tight schedule, one would expect that he does not have time for community initiatives. Additionally, he is a family person which means he has a lot to manage in his life.
