The OSI Group has been riding on a wonderful arc of development and great success since the turn of the millennium. David McDonald in the career of over three decades at OSI Group managed to reach a position of chief operating officer (COO) and firm’s president, after being a drop out from college. He joined the OSI Group as a project manager.
The international leader in the food industry is OSI Group presently. It all began when a German immigrant, early in the 20th century started a neighborhood butcher shop in Chicago. Luckily, in the mid of the century it turned into one of the major regional meat traders for the then-novel McDonald’s restaurant series. After some time it became one of that company’s most important worldwide suppliers. It has spread out rapidly everywhere, also planned to start new projects in the United States and globally, just over in the last quarter century. More about of David McDonald at bizjournal.com
