David McDonald serves as the current President and Chief Operating Officer at OSI Group, a global supplier of value-added food products such as such as sausage links and beef patties. Through his leadership and management, the company experienced massive growth and has become a world leader in the supply of foods in 17 countries.
David graduated with a Bachelor’s degree from Animal Science from Iowa State University in 1987. In the same year, he joined OSI Industries as a Project Manager. In 2008, he became the Independent Director of Marfrig Global Foods S.A., after it acquired the operations of OSI Group in Brazil and Europe. David previously served as the chairman of North American Meat Institute, and presently serves on its Board of Directors. He is also a member of OSI Group’s board of directors and is the director of Director of OSI International Foods Pty Limited, Australia.
Ever since he joined QSI Group, McDonald has played vital role in constant expansion. Recently, QSI acquired Baho Food, a Dutch company that manufactures meat products and other foodstuffs. David said this is a great addition to the existing OSI Europe business because it gives OSI a broader presence in Europe. Additionally, OSI Group has more than 20 years presence in China, where it has numerous distribution channels and productions plants. It is a supplier for several popular brands such as McDonald’s, Burger King and Starbucks.
David is innovative, hardworking and focused. He appreciates the importance of customers in the business and acknowledges that company needs to offer more to them than just food production. Thus, QSI Group works in partnership with its clients on the target products and subsequently partners with the suppliers to attain that particular outcome. This customer involvement makes them feel included, and this has contributed massively to the ever-growing client base.
