Over the years, OSI Group has been experiencing an exponential rate of growth. David McDonald has also been part of the growth that has been taking part in OSI Group. As a man who has served at OSI Group for at least three decades, David McDonald started out as a mere projects manager, and he was able to rise in the ranks, and he currently serves as the president of OSI Group and the chief operating officer.
OSI Group has been able to gain a positive reputation over the years, and they are currently among the leading food services providers globally. A company that was once a butcher shop is now a multinational corporation. It all started when some German immigrants settled in Chicago, Illinois. One immigrant by the name Otto Kolschowsky saw it fit to start a butcher shop that would serve the neighborhood. The butcher shop expanded and their services were even procured by the McDonald’s fast food joint. There and then, the McDonald’s entity relied on Otto & Sons as their primary supplier of meat products. Well, that was just part of the growth that the OSI Group experienced in the past. As of now, OSI Group has expanded far and wide, and they are operating on a global spectrum.
