As president of OSI Group, David McDonald is a success story to inspire entrepreneurs and hopeful executives everywhere. In a recent interview, David was asked to reflect on his career with a particular focus on successes and the achievements that have meant the most to him. Mr. McDonald was happy to share his insights, which may further inspire others hoping to pursue similar career paths.
When asked what has made OSI so successful, David stressed the cooperation between individual companies within the corporation. He said the partnerships each organization forms helps OSI to excel as a collective. It’s the entrepreneurial spirit of everyone within the organization that drives OSI toward excellence.
Mr. McDonald was also asked to discuss the most satisfying experience he has had in his business career. Instead of looking back on his career and choosing a distant memory, David named a recent achievement. OSI recently started a new operation in China and it’s easy to understand why that event was the most satisfying event in David’s business life. It required a significant investment of time and resources to make that goal a reality, so Mr. McDonald was delighted to see it all work out. He says the facility enables OSI to move forward with their plans for that region of the world.
Even after the facility has been made ready, David says China still presents some challenges. He says connecting with quality suppliers, while negotiating with agencies within the Chinese government has been a difficult part in getting the operation going. Yet, David adds that he understands the government is only trying to protect its people and ensure positive growth for the country’s economy.
That brings David back around to discussing his insights into marketing. As the leader of global organization, Mr. McDonald has seen the benefits of working with local communities in different locations throughout the world. He says the best results come from making genuine connections with the communities in which OSI operates. As opposed to employing marketing gimmicks, David McDonald recommends connecting with local cultures. When a genuine bond is created, corporations like OSI Group can forge lasting relationships with their customers.
