Sheldon Lavin: The Finance Executive Who Flourished in the Food Industry

Sheldon Lavin’s name, as Chairman, President, and CEO of OSI Group, has become synonymous with the fast food industry. Rightfully so considering all he’s accomplished in leadership roles with the company. As successful as he is today it’s hard to believe that this career wasn’t his first choice. A career in finance made much more sense to Lavin early on. Pursuing a career in finance he landed his first job in the banking industry as an investor and executive. His career was going so well he founded his own financial consulting firm. His career direction began to change once he began consulting for OSI Group.

While just a consultant he helped arrange OSI’s finances and secure vital funding for the company moving forward. He was brought on as OSI’s full time financial adviser and aided in it’s goal of building a meat processing facility. This facility dominated the Midwest region. It quickly became Mcdonald’s primary supplier in the area. At this point Lavin was fully on board with OSI and accepted a role as business partner. Although highly successful of OSI Processing food, he knew OSI had the potential to be more than it was at the time.

By the 1980’s Lavin had become sole owner of OSI and it was at this time that OSI saw its biggest growth period. It expanded to multiple territories outside the nation. Today OSI is a global multibillion dollar food processor and this is largely due to Lavin’s leadership. The OSI Group was the recipient of the British Safety Council’s Globe of Honor Award in 2016.

India’s Vision World Academy awarded Lavin the Global Visionary award for his outstanding achievements in 2016. Lavin was humbled by the award and very thankful. More than two decades ago he wouldn’t even have thought he’d be in this industry let alone make an impact.
