Since OSI Group deals in meat products, David McDonald tried his luck. Fortunately, he was hired as the productions manager. After many years of working at OSI group, he always got a promotion due to his hard work and dedication. As ambitious as he was, he never relented, and he always worked harder day in day out. At long last, Mr. McDonald’s dream of holding an executive position became a reality; he now serves as the chief operations officer and the president of OSI Group.
