Sheldon Lavin holds the office of CEO and Chairman of the OSI group. The OSI Group, headquartered in Aurora, Illinois, is a private owned company that handles processing of meat and wholesale catering services. He went into the meat processing business about 47 years ago after making a turnaround from being an investor and executive in the field of banking and started his own financial consulting firm. When he came to the OSI group, the McDonald’s Centric bugger supply was trivial, but he managed to turn it into an international food supplier. Sheldon Lavin’s accounting and finance academic background and experience he got from Financial Institute, allowed him to enter a new level of OSI.
Sheldon Lavin has also taken an active role in several charitable organizations. The most well-known charities, in this case, include the Ronald McDonald House philanthropic organizations, the Chicago Inner City Foundation, the Multiple Sclerosis Society, the Chicago Boys and Girls Clubs, the Jewish United Fund and many other Jewish charities, and the United Negro College Foundation and many more. These charitable organizations are proof of the philanthropy of Lavin. Sheldon Lavin also obtained several awards and participated in many services. These include the Trustee for Charities Ronald McDonald, a member of the Board of the Rush University Medical Center, a member of the Board of the Goodman Theater, the President and Director of the Sheba Foundation and many more.
Vision World Academy from India awarded Sheldon Lavin the Global Visionary Award early 2016. This was done as a credit of his improbable achievement in placing the OSI Group on a global stage, which allowed creating jobs around the world. The Global Visionary award is awarded to the creative thinker in different fields who have managed to turn their dreams into reality by persevering to attain their objectives. This award is given over the past five years.
OSI Group has been given many awards, after Lavin became its Chief Executive Officer. These include rewards for health management, environmental management, and security risks. Some awards include the “Golden Globe 2016” of the British Safety Council, awarded by OSI Food Solutions UK for its risk management strategies. OSI Group was also awarded an environmental award on November 25, 2016. His further role in the world of business, as well as charity, is likely to bring more honors and credit at both the national and international levels. The future holds great things in the favor of this businessman.
