Producing quality products that customers enjoy is one of the essential elements of success in the food processing industry. Businesses that have succeeded in this highly competitive field are also able to stay on top of the game and evolve as their industry changes. The businesses within the industry that can achieve these goals tend to be ones that have a strong company culture that fosters entrepreneurship. When all of these factors are in place, a business can find success in the world of food processing and wholesale. OSI Group is a company that lives up to all of these standards and this has allowed the company to become a leader in its field.
A big part of the reason that OSI Group has been able to meet and exceed these standards is because of the work of its President, David McDonald. He has been with the food processing firm from Illinois since 1987 and has seen and done it all. He also worked in many different roles for the company on his way up the corporate ladder. David McDonald is one of the primary leaders of a world-leading food company but his life began simply enough on the Iowa farm that he was raised on. There is no doubt that this farming upbringing taught him the definition of hard work. That is a lesson that has continued to serve him well throughout his life. He quickly landed his job at OSI Group after he graduated from Iowa State.
It was not long after coming to work for the Aurora, Illinois company that David had already started to impressive the leadership. He quickly made major inroads in OSI’s plans to continue to grow in a number of global markets. The concept of partnerships has always been one that David McDonald values. His value for partnership building has always helped him in expanding OSI’s global footprint. David understands the value of learning about the cultures of the places where OSI does business. This has allowed him to foster many valuable relationships that have helped the company to serve its customer base better.
