He serves as the President, Chief Operating Officer and Member of the Board of Directors for the global food processing and distribution giant OSI Group, LLC.

He majored in animal science, a field that had always interested him since his days growing up on the farm. When he graduated from Iowa State in 1987 he was presented with the opportunity to join the ever-expanding operations of OSI Group.

David McDonald truly believes that OSI Group has a model that will ensure sustainability for the company long into the future. The company’s culture is based on a family ethic that treats customers and employees as family members. This is the culture that was cultivated by OSI Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Sheldon Lavin and David McDonald has fully bought into this policy. OSI has very low turnover as a result of its employees being made to feel like that are important members of a team. The company also maintains its clients over long periods of time due to the incredible customer service and dedication to delivering the best food solutions in the business.
