David McDonald: One Ambitious Dream for the OSI Group  0

The OSI Group transformed into the world’s largest producer and distributor of meat and protein products, and all of this is possible because of David McDonald’s actions. David McDonald is the current president and chief executive officer of the company, and he has one ambitious goal – to infiltrate each country and be able to sell the products from the OSI Group. Before he was chosen by the board of directors to become the company’s president and chief executive officer, David McDonald was the managing director of Marfrig, a Brazilian and European subsidiary of the OSI Group. Due to his influence in the department, he managed to get the attention of the management, and he was promoted to a higher position. Now that he was named as the company’s leader, David McDonald wanted to strengthen the presence of the company overseas and ordered more local management teams to be created. Local management teams vary from country to country, but all of them have one main goal – to ensure that the operation of the OSI Group abroad is smooth and going.

David McDonald can be considered as one of the main reasons why the OSI Group became a global powerhouse. It has been his desire since the beginning to contribute greatly to his OSI company’s success. He never failed the company with his dream, as they are currently beating their previous records and has been enjoying the stay at the pedestal. Currently, the OSI Group has partnerships with different companies abroad, and they are also acquiring smaller firms who are considered as competitors in the food industry, just like Baho Foods. The OSI Group acquired Baho Foods because they wanted to improve their presence on the European continent. Baho Foods is a Dutch company which also sells the same thing that the OSI sells, and David McDonald thought that by acquiring the firm, there would be less competition in the market, which is advantageous to the OSI Group.

Today, David McDonald is busy monitoring the company’s Asian satellite offices and facilities. According to David McDonald, they are putting a lot of emphasis and importance in Asia because most of their customers live on the continent. Home to more than half of the total human population, Asia became a favorite for firms like the OSI Group because of its sheer number of people. David McDonald claimed that a place with more people means that there can be a huge number of potential customers that would drive the revenues higher.

David McDonald- Taking OSI To New Heights  0

Founded almost a century ago in 1909, OSI Group has grown by leaps and bounds under the direction of David McDonald, the man who currently serves as the company’s president and it’s Chief Operations Officer. One of the most recent achievements that the company has had under his leadership was the acquisition of Baho Foods which is a leading Dutch company that specializes in the processing of Delhi meat and other foods. The company has operations in several countries across different continents including Germany and the Netherlands and its recent acquisition by the OSI Group is a move that will serve to compliment the group’s wide range of products and also expand its reach into some new territories, considering the OSI Group, the parent company, is one of the largest processors of meat in the country. Originally started in Chicago, Illinois, the company moved its headquarters to Aurora and today has a total of ten processing facilities in China alone. This is one of the few testaments to the growth that the group has continued to enjoy under David’s leadership.

If you are running one of the biggest meat processing companies in the world then you need someone at the forefront who knows what he is doing, has a keen eye for business and comes with the experience that is needed to get the job done. And David McDonald is just the man. He holds a Bachelors Degree in Animal Science from the Iowa State University and has been with the IOS Group ever since. As a true testament to his hard working nature, David started working at the company as a mere Project Manager Right after graduating from the university and brought in a lot of experience too since he was also serving as the chairman of North American Meat Institute. It is only through sheer hard work, determination and dedication to duty that he eventually rose to the position that he now holds. In addition to his position at the OSI Group, David also serves as a member of the company’s Board of Directors and is in charge of all the company’s operations in Australia.
