President and Chief Operating Officer at OSI Group, David McDonald has been making his presence felt in the business world for quite some time. Under his leadership OSI has grown to pretty big levels. Today the company has more than twenty thousand employees. Still evolving, OSI currently has nearly seventy employees in seventeen countries.
The history of OSI is quite remarkable. Their history stems from the American immigrant experience. The family-based, immigrant group was rebranded as Otto & Sons in 1928. They have a history that dates back to one of the biggest and most successful fast food chains ever: McDonalds. Ray Kroc opened the first McDonald’s restaurant in 1955 and soon began trying to expand the store across the country. Before expanding he had a hand shake agreement with the sons of Otto Kolschowsky—Arthur and Harry. The company soon expanded in a major way. Otto & Sons joined and helped establish the blueprint. Otto and Sons had become a global group.
OSI would soon transform its technology to become a global brand. A technological transformation made their work easier, and much affordable. David McDonald is largely responsible for this continued growth. This transformation included things like flash freezing food processing allowing for new opportunities for product expansion and cost reduction.
David McDonald has built quite a resume over time. Outside of serving as Project Manager of OSI Industries, David McDonald has served as Chairman of North American Meat Institute. Furthermore he has served as an Independent Director at Marfrig Global Foods S.A. since December 2008. Today David McDonald is a member of OSI Group’s board of directors and works as the Director of OSI International Foods. He has built an amazing reputation and track record for success.
