David McDonald is the Chief Operating Officer, President and Board Member for OSI Group, LLC. David was born and raised on a farm in Iowa and attended college at his native Iowa State Universtiy in Ames Iowa. When David graduated from Iowa State in 1987 he embarked on his long business career with OSI Group that has seen him rise through the ranks to the top. David came into his career with OSI Group as a project manager who was given the project of expanding OSI Group’s operations in Asia. David is fully committed to OSI Group’s global expansion drive that was initiated by Chief Executive Officer and Chairman Sheldon Lavin beginning in the 1970s. David takes particular pride in the company’s achievements in China as the Asian market has been close to his heart since his earliest times with the company. He was recently thrilled with the opening of the tenth OSI Group facility in China. David also works hard at maintaining OSI Group’s long term sustainability by continuing to foster the company’s tradition of being a family-values oriented workplace that treats both customer and employee as valued family members. This environment is a major contributor to the fact that OSI Group has very low employee turnover and very high retention of long-term customers.
David has also been working hard on OSI Group’s footprint in Europe recently. The company has acquired Baho Food and Flagship Europe. These acquisitions have been described by David McDonald as a huge boost to the company’s portfolio. He expects that the additions of Baho and Flagship to the OSI family will bring in many new, high profile accounts. OSI has also recently announced that Flagship Europe will be rebranded as Creative Foods Europe. These acquisitions coincided with the massive upgrades made to OSI Group’s facility in Toledo, Spain. Improvements to the production line at that facility have led to a much-needed increase in chicken production. The facility is now producing in excess of 24,000 tons of chicken per year in its drive to give its Spanish and Portuguese customers the very best in customer service.
OSI also announced big news on the homefront with the recent purchase of the former Tyson food facility located in Chicago, Illinois. The location is now the newest OSI Group food processing facility and the second operated by the company in the Chicago region. The expectation is that this will lead to a massive increase in production for the company in this critical market.
