According to Sheldon Lavin, leaders who seek to be innovators must be humble and maintain close ties with their employees and peers alike. Sheldon Lavin is the CEO of OSI Industries and is also a seasoned financial guru who knows the issues that break or make, small and big companies. In his career, Lavin has been largely successful and has always influenced momentous changes in companies he has worked in. The background of Sheldon Lavin’s expertise began way back in college when he majored in finance.
All through his magnificent career, Lavin has relied on his ability to look ahead and prepare for the future. The CEO says that making plans for the future, today puts a company or an individual at a better position to achieve the goals set. This is evident in the decisions OSI Industries has made, under the leadership of Lavin. OSI Industries is the fastest growing food company in the world and the company has achieved this because of consistent good decision making.
Among these includes mergers, partnerships and strategic acquisitions that the food company has made, thanks to its CEO, Sheldon Lavin. Because of Lavin’s deep knowledge and experience as an executive and also as a financial, he is able to make wise decisions when faced with a collection of variables and factors.
As the CEO he must be able to evaluate consumer behavior, source funds for expansions, anticipate and adopt technological changes and also be in control of the supply chain. According to Sheldon Lavin, it is nearly impossible for a manager to dictate all these factors, and that is why he is a big advocate for delegation. Lavin adds that every successful executive must surround himself/herself with many different experts so that he/she can be able to make a sound decision with minimal research.
The OSI Industries CEO further states that he is always updated on technological breakthroughs because he believes the future of every industry lies on the technological advancements made in their particular field. Lavin makes most of his money from investing his OSI’s profits into select money markets. His love for investing and leading a great company to higher heights, is what Lavin lives for, and it is why he still not retired, despite, him having advanced in age.
