As a man of many talents, David McDonald is the epitome of hard work and success. Heading one of the largest multinational company is no joke. As president of OSI Group, he has made the conglomerate a leader in its industry.
Initially founded in 1909, OSI has witnessed a revolution from one plant to branches in Europe, Asia, and the United States. The food processing company celebrates 20 years operating in China. With the growth of China’s economy, OSI also witnessed a boom in its sales and revenue, selling different kinds of products including beef, eggs, and pork among others.
One man is credited with the accomplishments. As chief of operations, David McDonald has been with the company since 1987. Born in Pennsylvania, David nicknamed Dave is a graduate in Animal Science from Iowa State University. Immediately after his graduation, David McDonald started working up to his current position as President. The idea of a China base is one of his brainchildren. With the growing Chinese population, David pointed out the market as a competitive advantage for the firm.
Also having served as project manager at OSI, David McDonald has worked to ensure the company adapts to the changing world. By identifying consumer trends, OSI can adjust to new changes. The strategy has a major impact on how they manage their food products, the animals, labeling, and sourcing. Serving different consumers means helping different preferences and OSI has been able to satisfy local cultures and customers tastes.
Under his astute leadership, OSI Group has broadened its capabilities and market. For example, the acquisition of Baho foods was an expert business move. The addition of Dutch-based food processor with efforts from David helped grow the presence into the new Europe market. With five subsidiaries across Europe, David recognized Baho as an excellent expansion opportunity. The chief officer of OSI was also quick to point out that the acquisition was to help OSI expand their customer base by entering new markets.
The future of OSI is secured under the visionary guidance of Donald McDonald, as he looks to grow and improve the conglomerate abilities.
