Lavin always knew that he wanted to work in the global food industry, and after graduating with a degree in finance, he began this career as a banking investor and financial consultant. His vision was to help businesses in the global food industry secure the funds they needed to thrive. His journey with OSI began with him securing the capital needed to expand back when OSI was just a small, family business known as Otto & Sons. Because Otto & Sons became so successful from that expansion, some would say that Otto & Sons was lucky to have worked with Sheldon Lavin. Lavin sees it the opposite way. He believes that he was the lucky one, and that Otto & Sons was his big break. As the company continued to grow, Lavin became a partner in the company. When his partner retired, he took over as CEO. Lavin helped OSI become a global phenomenon in the food processing and distribution industry. In 2017, the company was ranked #58 on Forbes’ list of the Top 100 Private American companies. Lavin has won several awards for his exemplary performance. One of awards was the Global Visionary Award by India’s Vision World Academy in 2016.
