Many people don’t care about knowing the past of the investors when they get to the top. They only care about what the investors are doing at that particular moment. That is where many people fail because you cannot understand a building without understanding the foundation of the building. All the traits that are making an investor stay at the top were developed along the way of their career.
David McDonald is among the individuals who have a history that does not match their present. He was raised in Lowa. Her family was humble, and no one knew he could become the President of OSI Group McDonalds. He studied Animal Science at Iowa State University (ISU).
After his studies, he secured a project manager job at Otto & Sons. The firm was still a local butchery. He has, therefore, watched the gradual growth of the company to the multinational company it is today. His contribution in the firm led him to be named the chief operating officer (COO) and President of OSI Group McDonalds.
David McDonald says that the past three decades of his life have been exciting because he has been doing something he loves. He has always loved biology and agriculture. He is, therefore, not bored of doing the same thing at OSI Group McDonalds for 30 years.
Everyone is scared at some point along the business because the whole thing is unpredictable. There are moments where things constantly go contrary from our expectations, and we begin to doubt whether the path we are following is right. However, David McDonald says that there was never a time where he doubted the strategies of OSI Group McDonalds could work. He has always had faith with the plans of the company. He adds that although their legal laws they have to adhere to, being a private company, there are some things that they are able to forego.
Thanks to the contribution of David McDonald, the firm has been able to open more than 65 locations in 16 countries across the world. With their investments, they have been able to employ more than 20000 employees, which is just one of the way the firm benefits the society.
