Leadership in every organization is everything. The senior leaders of the foundation determine the direction on which the company takes. There is need to be careful on who is appointed in such seats. The OSI Group, best understands the impact of leadership. Through their Chief Executive Officer: Lavin, they have been able to reach greater heights. Sheldon Lavin has led to the purchase of Flagship Europe and Baho Food, which has increased the leverage of the firm.
Sheldon Lavin is a self-driven individual. He lets nothing come between him and his goals. After school, he wanted to create a series of companies which would facilitate food distribution. He knew that many firms needed financial support to expand, which he was ready to offer. To achieve his dream, he had to become a financial consultant.
It was during his time in the Consultant Firm that he came along the Otto & Sons. They needed finance to expand. He believed their strategy would work and he went ahead and processed their request. Sheldon was involved more in the business when the firm was looking for opportunities in abroad. With the retirement of their father, the sons nominated him as a partner. After a short time, Sheldon realized the firm had a great vision and decided to join Otto & Sons on a full-time basis. He is glad that his assumptions were right, and the Otto & Sons is now a prestigious firm in the nation.
