David McDonald is the COO (Chief Operating Officer) and President of OSI Group, LLC. Mr. McDonald is a graduate of Iowa State University earning a degree in Animal Science. OSI Group is based in Aurora, Illinois, but works worldwide. The company operates its entities with local management teams and tap into the local talent pool for employees. OSI has operated in China for more than 20 years and OSI sees endless growth as the economy continues to expand in that country. There are currently eight factories with two new factories on the way. In addition to expanding in China, OSI is also expanding in other parts of the world including Poland and India.
According to McDonald, offering more to client’s means developing new products so their clients can grow their business and not just production capacity. While keeping up with demand is challenging, the challenge is necessary to meet the demands of consumers. OSI works with clients to establish solutions to move them in the direction they wish to go.
David McDonald has been with OSI for more than 30 years and in that time, the company has aspired to growth. The commitment to grow and always improve its offerings has become a part of the company culture. McDonald always supports that culture and vision through his leadership and dedication to the company. McDonald also works from the entrepreneurial spirit, which is one of the founding steeping stones of OSI. Being a privately held company and not a public entity, allows OSI to be as flexible as necessary.
McDonald finds OSI customers often inspire innovation and that is what often provides the necessary challenge to search for the right solution. The process inspires the product and menu development team to try new things and improve on the offerings already provided. According to McDonald, the OSI Group is all about family. The products developed, manufactured and sold by OSI should always be good enough to serve family.
Adapting to change is the only way to ensure the continued success of OSI and provides the competitive edge over those companies that do not adapt to change. To make sure the company continues to grow, they will simply stay focused on the company vision and values. The team at OSI will always continue to improve while changing as the economy fluctuates and client’s demands change. OSI enjoys working with their clients and helping them develop solutions so their own businesses can grow.
