Sheldon Lavin is the newest recipient of the Global Visionary Award. This award honors business leaders who have shown persistence and hard work with an eye on accomplishing the goals they’ve set. The Vision World Academy in India is responsible for selecting the awardees. Mr. Lavin is the 81-year-old Chairman and CEO of OSI Group, LLC.
In 1970, back when OSI was known as Otto & Sons, Sheldon joined the meat processing company after assisting them in arranging to finance. Mr. Lavin had previously had a successful career in finance as an investor and banking executive. When the family owned company needed financing for a new meat processing facility, Sheldon helped them work it out. Before joining the company, however, he was skeptical about his expertise in the business so he at first came in as a consultant.
Lavin’s involvement in the company peaked when they started eyeing expansion overseas. This led him to join the company full time, and he subsequently became a partner after the patriarch of the family retired. The quest for expansion began with opening new facilities in North America, then Europe. In the 1980’s, the company was breaking new ground in South America then Australia and Asia as well as South Africa.
One of the two brothers sought to liquidate his stake, and Mr. Lavin bought his shares and thus gained a 50% controlling interest in the company. A few years later, the remaining brother retired selling Sheldon his stake and thus giving him 100% of the company. With Sheldon at the helm of OSI, the company has witnessed phenomenal international growth. It has slowly grown from a local family owned business to a billion dollar global food processor with 20,000 employees in 55 facilities across 16 countries.
With over 43 years of experience, Sheldon has had a successful career with OSI. He is the current President of OSI International Foods Limited. Sheldon was also the director of the National Fish and Wildlife Association and is the General Trustee of the Rush University Medical Center. He has been married for 55 years and has three children.
