Mr. David McDonald is the President and the Chief Operating Officer OSI Group. Before then, he was the Chairman of North American Meat Institute (NAMI). McDonald is also a member of the Board of Directors of OSI Group. In addition to that, he is also the current Director of the OSI International Foods in Australia.
David McDonald was born in the Northeastern part of Iowa and he was raised there too. He attended Iowa State University and got a Bachelor’s Degree in Animal Science from the university. He joined the OSI industries after his graduation and gradually rose to become the president of the group.
As a way of giving back to the society, David McDonald uses some of the resources of the group to improve the lives of residents of Iowa State. He is current giving support to students that are interested in agriculture or agricultural entrepreneurship. He once made it possible for some students to visit and study the facilities of OSI group in China.
In the bid to continuously expand the group, David McDonald has started launching offices and facilities in different parts of the world. This will definitely make for faster, easier, cheaper, and more convenient distribution of their products. One of the ways through which Mr. McDonald raised the bar in OSI Group is to hire a highly knowledgeable and experienced global logistic team that possesses expertise and experience in distribution within the international market.
He also ensured that the international logistic teams are always on the same page with different local logistic teams as this will promote higher productivity and efficiency. The international logistic team will get products to the local team of a particular region while the local logistic team within the region will get the products to the clients and customers.
In addition, it is the local team of a region that understands the demand, taste, and culture of the clients within their community and they will get the international logistic team informed about this. Some of the international clients of OSI Group are Starbucks, Yum, Subway, and Burger King just to mention a few.
Due to the fact that China has one of the largest populations in the world, OSI Group sees the country as a “hot” location. In the bid to continue their expansion, OSI Group acquired Baho Food in 2016. Baho Food is a Dutch-based meat processing company that serves several countries in Europe. McDonald believes that this acquisition will further reinforce the Group’s presence in the European Market. Apart from Baho Food, the group acquired several other great firms.
