David McDonald is the kind of man who feels passionate about few things. He is a simple man who loves his family, his hometown, and his White Sox. There is one thing that McDonald is passionate about though, and that is high quality, value added proteins and other commodity food products to leading distributors and end market retailers all over the world. As such he is in a perfect position as president of the OSI Group, one of the world’s leading suppliers of such protein based food products.
The products that are offered by OSI range from sausage links to beef patties and everything in between. There is also a growing business in meat alternative for markets such as India, Indonesia, and the middle east. The company is privately held and currently operates more than 50 facilities in 17 countries with two more facilities opening in china in the next year. Not a bad place to be for a company that started as Otto & Sons Meats in the late 60’s and was for the longest time the biggest supplier of beef patties exclusively to McDonald’s Systems for use in their signature Quarter Pounder and Big Mac Sandwiches.
There are other things that matter to McDonald though, his family being at the top of that list. He also feels very strong in his desire to help make the world a better place through his extensive work with non-profits and other philanthropic endeavors. He is still an avid supporter of Iowa State University, where he got his Bachelors of Science in Business in 1987. He is a member of Alpha Gamma Ro and is still active in the organization, helping to foster a sense of purpose and achievement in the next generation of leaders that will come forth from its stories and prestigious ranks.
He is a leader with an extensive background of success, being recruited directly into the position of OSI president from his time at Iowa State. Even to this day is passionate about a spirit of growth and engagement to the challenges of the future. It is in that philosophy that he strives to make OSI better every single day to learn more about us: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OSI_Group click here.
