The growth of any business is highly dependent on the company’s efforts in creating a good working environment with all partners. This is important businesses depend on each other and the failure of one could ultimately be the failure of all.
According to David McDonald, the President of OSI Group, success in business can only be measured by how much an organisation values its partnerships. The ability to view and treat every customer, and also the staff in an organisation as partners in business allows for tremendous growth. This, David McDonald says, is the only forum that allows the organisation to better understand a client’s needs, and make for timely and efficient delivery of goods or services as needed. This creates trust which in return translates to repeat business.
David McDonald has served at OSI Group for close to 30 years, having joined the organisation in 1987, soon after graduating with a degree in Animal Science from Iowa State University. Under his leadership, OSI Group has acquired among others, Baho Foods, a Dutch meat and poultry processing company. The move to acquire Baho Foods, which has been in the food processing and distribution business for over 60 years is largely seen as an opportunity for OSI Group to expand its reach to Europe. OSI group has also acquired Chicago based Tyson Foods, an acquisition which under David McDonald’s supervision saw OSI Group retain all the staff members who would have otherwise lost their jobs with the early closure of the company.
David McDonald has led OSI Group to greater heights every year with his exceptional leadership and relationship building skills during his tenure at the organisation. This has earned him respect in the food processing and distribution industry, and also in social circles. He is one of the few scholars who have been awarded the Wallace E. Barron Outstanding Senior Award, a world-recognized award that is given to the most respected and influential individuals in the business world today.
