OSI group began as a modest neighbourhood butcher, but today it is an internationally recognized conglomerate which defines growth and expansion better than better than any other company. Today it’s listed among the high riders of the food industry. All this growth could not have been possible if it weren’t for its exemplary group of leaders among them, David McDonald. David McDonald has been an integral part of the food company and having been brought up on a farm; he has always had the passion for being in the food industry. In respect to this, he attended Lowa State University where he studied animal science and emerged with outstanding results a factor that saw him being honoured with the Wallace E. Barron outstanding senior award.
Fresh from school, equipped with the right knowledge from his education and experience from growing up in a farm, David began as an intern at OSI and worked his way up the ladder to become the Chief Operating officer of OSI group. His experience growing up on a farm largely influences his style of leadership to date. Additionally, the fact that he joined the firm when it was still in its early stages of growth has helped him gain a deeper understanding of how it works and also how the market works. It is thanks to this that David McDonalds can come up with strategies which only help in propelling the company to the top. For instance, David has been the cornerstone of most decisions.

He has also been the force behind OSI Group’s recent expansion into countries like Europe and China. David McDonald’s presence at OSI group has positively impacted the growth of the company which is now listed on Forbes list of the most significant private companies and runs in about seventeen countries with over 65 branches and more than 2000 employees.
