Sheldon Lavin Is The Chairman And CEO Of OSI Group September 18, 2017

Sheldon Lavin took his time to build a meat industry career. He entered the industry more than four decades ago. Lavin was an outsider who had success in investments. He worked in the banking industry and owned a consulting firm. Lavin took an unlikely path to become Chairman and CEO of OSI Group. He has transformed the formerly family-owned company into a worldwide supplier of food products. OSI operates under several brand names that include OSI Industries LLC, OSI International Foods LLC and OSI International Inc. OSI International Inc is the parent company of OSI’s international investments.

OSI Group currently employs more than 20,000 workers. Lavin is proud of the fact that he has established a culture of employees that believe in the company’s vision from the top ranks to the very bottom. He feels that the environment he created is unique and family-oriented. This is proven by the tremendous longevity of the company’s workforce. There is very little turnover at OSI, which is indicative of a healthy work setting.

Sheldon Lavin initially became involved with the meat industry in 1970. Otto and Sons was the predecessor to OSI. Lavin arranged the financing for Otto and Sons to build the plant they needed to secure its business relationship with the McDonald’s Corporation. The business venture needed funding. The bank recommended that Lavin play a role and suggested that he have an ownership position at Otto and Sons. Sheldon Lavin was not interested in such a business arrangement at the start. However, he did offer his services as a consultant. His stipulation to the Otto and Sons family was that he would have the same degree of leverage within the company as the current owners if he was to come in as a partner.

By 1975 Sheldon Lavin was thoroughly involved in the inner workings of Otto and Sons. He initiated overseas investments. Lavin became a partner with Otto Kolschowsky’s sons after Otto retired from the daily workings of the business. During this time McDonald’s executives requested that Lavin be involved in the business on a full-time basis. Lavin’s respect for the McDonald’s corporation convinced him to come in to Otto and Sons full time. The company then became known as OSI Group.

OSI Group expanded across North America and into Europe throughout the 70s. Eventually South America and Taiwan became working territories. By the early 80s Lavin had secured half of the controlling interest in OSI. This was after one of the original partners decided to sell his stake. The last partner retired over 13 years ago. This gave Sheldon Lavin 100% control over OSI Group.

The Brown Agency: For the Well-Rounded Individual

The Brown Agency, the biggest modeling agency in Texas, was established with the merging of Texas’ two largest talent agencies- Wilhelmina Austin and Heyman Talent-South. Separately, these two agencies were the best of their kind, but once they joined forces they started producing some of the most talented and well-rounded models in the area.

Previously, Wilhelmina Austin dominated as a modeling agency in Texas, whereas Heyman Talent-South took the cake as a successful acting talent agency. The idea was to create one full-service agency with the ability to hire those looking to model, to act or to do both and to help perfect their skills in both areas. Later on, an area was even created for those interested in theater. Employees of the Brown Agency say this alliance was the best thing that could’ve happened- the combination of people so skilled in these two very diverse talents has created something that is quite close to indestructible in terms of agencies of their kind.

Although these two agencies were superstars on their own, uniting them seemed to only make them all the more powerful. With the establishment of the Brown Agency, Justin Brown took on the roles of both CEO and president. The company’s headquarters are located in Austin, although offices have been created around Dallas and the company frequently shows its face in Los Angeles.

Models lucky enough to join this agency leave with very substantial additions to their resumes; throughout their time working with the Brown Agency, they become very well-versed in both acting and modeling. This experience helps shape them into highly qualified candidates for any future jobs they may take interest in. Whether one wants to be on the front cover of a magazine, strut down the runway or be the next aspiring actor, the Brown Agency provides these talented individuals with the fundamental stepping stones (as well as a few extras) to reach their goals.

Already having helped many aspiring actors and models reach goals that far surpass their wildest dreams, the joining of Wilhelmina Austin and Heyman Talent-South to create the Brown Agency has proven to be a good idea for everyone involved. Visit their Instagram account for more.

Suing for Justice; defending the Meek September 5, 2017

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin might not have founded the Lacey and Larkin Frontera fund had they not endured a gruesome ordeal of violent detention. They endured it though, and hence, through the darkness, an opportunity to provide light was formed.

Nonetheless, they would have still found a way to get justice for the oppressed members of the Hispanic community in Arizona. Already, the two veteran journalists had exposed Sheriff Joe Arpaio for his oppressive and abrasive tactics of silencing the media and any verbal critic of his.

The self-proclaimed toughest sheriff in America had subjected them to subjugation for far too long and their cries had been finally had.

The genesis of the conflict between Larkin and Lacey and Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio began through a former journalist at the Phoenix Times. The Phoenix Times was co-founded by Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin and, therefore, they took up the journalist’s work when he departed for better career prospects.

He had picked up several complaints about Mr. Arpaio’s abuse of office and began investigating him. He had found out that despite the sheriff’s 72,000 dollars annual salary, he had made cash deposits of 690,000 in local real estate investments.

He had also recorded numerous complaints from locals in Hispanic neighborhoods that the sheriff would raid their homes with either search or arrest warrants, and take some of them into custody. Some never came back as they died in jail of treatable illnesses that they didn’t suffer from before their arrests. The numbers were alarming: 60 deaths in less than three years.

The situation got worse when the Village Voice Media executives and founders published an expose detailing all the transgressions of which county law enforcer was guilty. The sheriff used intimidation in response and a grand stand off ensued.

The defiant reporters ended up on the cold floors of the county jails as the situation got bad real quick. Larkin and Lacey sued Maricopa County for wrongful arrest and malicious conspiracy by its officials to silence the media.

They won the lawsuit which dragged in court for five years and were awarded 3.75 million dollars. They founded the Frontera Fund and donated to it the 3.75 million dollars.

The Frontera Fund liaises with other entities that lobby for civil, human and migrant rights. It supports all causes that undertake the protection of the First Amendment from any violation. The initiative primarily focuses on the emancipation of immigrants and Hispanics in the United States, especially in Arizona. Read more: Village Voice Media | Wikipedia and Phoenix New Time

It does so by partnering with lobby groups that prosecute biased laws and policies. Popularly referred as the Closed Fist Approach, lobby groups like the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) use constitutional litigation to challenge the constitutionality of policies that criminalize immigration.

Another approach, the Open Fist Approach uses civil litigation against abrasive county, state and federal officials to set precedence against any violation of the First Amendment. Most lobby groups which further similar causes as those of the Frontera Fund receive publication and legal support from it. It also offers financial support in just situations.

He also had to work to ensure that he was doing things the right way and that he was allowing people the chance to experience more in their own situations.

For Oncotarget to be as successful as what he wanted, he chose to include other specialists. The most important thing that these people did was provide valuable insight into what was going on and what they would be able to do to get more from the best cancer treatment that they were dealing with so that they would be as successful as possible.When Mikhail Blagosklonny first created Oncotarget, he knew what he could do and how he would be able to experience more for his practice.
