OSI Industries Expands Its Holdings In Europe By Buying Baho Food

Not long after enhancing its domestic production capabilities with the acquisition of a Tyson Food plant, OSI Industries made a big acquisition that will enhance its already powerful reach into Europe. The acquisition was Baho Food which specializes in deli meats and snack food production, and their inventory will now include even more foods since it will be adding meats from their new parent company. Baho Food CEO John Balvers will remain on as will other company employees, and he expressed his delight at now being able to better serve Baho Food’s customers. Five major subsidiaries that will also be under OSI Industries’ control will be Gelderland Frischwaren, Vital Convenience, Henri van de Bilt, Bakx Foods and Q Smart Life that have served Baho Food’s specialties to 18 countries across Europe.

OSI Industries may not get as much recognition as their biggest partner, McDonald’s, but they can certainly be credited with providing the quality meats that have given customers a smile while dining at their fast food restaurants. Their partnership with McDonald’s started back in 1955 while they were known as Otto & Sons. The company’s namesake came from a Chicago butcher and meat market owner named Otto Kolschowsky who had started the business at a home shop in 1909 and then opened a larger market center in 1926. McDonald’s became the first client that would drive high demands for meat production from Otto & Sons, and they effectively became the catalyst that triggered a period of major growth beyond not only the Midwest borders, but also US borders.

Sheldon Lavin, the current chairman and CEO of OSI Industries can be credited with growing the company and giving it one of the best reputations in the meat industry. His experience in banking gave him the knowledge of how to manage the company’s funds wisely, and he knew which key investments to make and when. One of the most important things he wanted OSI Industries to invest in was safety both in equipment and in how various procedures would be handled. The company has been commended by several international agencies including the British Safety Council for maintaining environmentally-safe practices and training employees in safe product handling. In addition to Baho Food, OSI Industries has several other partners and farm suppliers in its portfolio including a joint venture with Select Ready Foods in Canada, Amick Farms in Batesburg, SC, Fair Oak Farms in Pleasant Prarie WI, Nation Pizza, K&K Foods in Taiwan and GenOSI in the Philippines.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi: Legacy In The Field Of Banking

Bradesco Bank will be welcoming their newest president, Octavio de Lazari Junior. He will be replacing Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi as the president of Bradesco Bank, and the board of executives chose him because of his excellent background in the field of managing finances. According to Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi, he is delighted after he was informed that his successor would be Octavio de Lazari Junior. He knew that his successor has enough experiences to continue the changes that he initiated with the company. Octavio de Lazari Junior said that he is a big fan of Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi, and he will be continuing his legacy which resulted in the exponential growth of Bradesco Bank.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi was born in the same city where Bradesco Bank was founded more than 90 years ago. As a child, he witnessed how the financial institution grew and how they cared for their clients. In his young heart, he promised that he would be working with Bradesco Bank someday.

When he turned 17 years old, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi thought that he should start sending his application letter to the company, hoping that the management will hire him despite his young age. He was surprised when he was informed that he would start working with the company as a clerk, and he exerted all of his effort to get noticed by the management, and he was given a promotion later on.

When he was in the managerial position, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi continued his impressive performance with the company. He was given multiple promotions until he reached the executive department. Just like Octavio de Lazari Junior, he was also selected by the board of directors to replace the head of Bradesco Bank who has to retire because of his old age. Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi never expected that out of all the individuals who have expressed their interest in becoming the next president, he is the one which the board of directors would choose. Upon taking the position, his first objective is how the company would be able to face the growing competition against the combined forces of Banco Itau and Unibanco. He would meet his colleagues and talk about their present situation, but he seemed not to be impressed with the solutions presented to him. Later on, he thought about purchasing HSBC Brazil to increase Bradesco Bank’s value.

The transaction went through after months of bargaining, and Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi had to pay $5.2 billion for the transaction. It was the costliest thing that the company purchased, but all of the money that they had to pay for HSBC Brazil was worth it. Immediately after the sale, the value of Bradesco Bank increased. Many investors have noted the immediate changes, and they purchase shares from Bradesco Bank, further driving its value. This legacy left behind by Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi will be continued by the next set of officials who will be serving the company anew, and they stated that they will also adapt his unique approach in dealing with other companies.

The career of Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi began around 48 years ago when he fully committed to be working in Bradesco Organization. Prior to joining this company, he has served Odontoprev S.A as the Chairman of the Board of Directors, also as a Member of the Board of Directors of ArcelorMittal Brasil. He has served in Marketing and Fundraising Commission of ABECIP, in National Association of Private Pensions, in National Federation of Supplementary Health and in National Confederation of Financial Institutions as the President.

In Bradesco Bank, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi has served as the Chairman of the Board of the Bank since 2017 and has been serving as the director since 2010. He graduated with Philosophy and later a postgraduate degree in Social Psychology. His contribution in the organization is quite recommendable.

Adam Milstein Allies Saban And Adelson In Effort To Fight Enemies Of Jews

Defending not only the Jewish homeland but also their way of life and pride is what Adam Milstein has written a lot about lately. He published an article in the Jewish News Syndicate in which he disclosed that he was forming a task force of Jewish-Americans committed to fighting the spread of antisemitism. This task force has been planned with the help of Sheldon Adelson and Haim Saban, two men who each support different political parties but who each have a desire to stop hate against the Jewish community. Milstein has compared what today’s Jews will need to do as part of this task force with what Judas Maccabeus did in the ancient world when he used his ingenuity to defeat Greek oppressors. Adam Milstein believes the foundation to the ultimate defeat of antisemitism are Jews looking out for each other and supporting Israel even if they don’t agree with all of its politics.

Israel is a very near and dear place to Adam Milstein because he grew up in Haifa and witnessed many of the wars they had throughout the 1950s, 60s and even as he served in their military in the 1970s. He was in the battalion commanded by Ariel Sharon that captured Egyptian territories during the Yom Kippur War, and he’s made several references to the tactical maneuvers Israel has made in defeating its enemies. Milstein attended the Technion Institute during his undergraduate school years and then finished a master’s degree at Univesity of Southern California. He developed an acumen for making investments in residential and commercial properties which led to him starting Hager Pacific Properties along with David Hager and Robert Neal, and the company has billions in property assets under management.

Adam Milstein wanted to build collaborations between leaders like Adelson and Saban and involve various rabbis and other synagogue board members, so he founded the Milstein Family Foundation and the Israeli-American Council to do so. The largest group his philanthropy is directed at is Jewish college students, and organizations like Hillel International and Hasbara Fellowships exist to give those students a voice. Milstein also is a board member of StandWithUs which promotes Israeli causes through mass media distribution.

Graham Edwards Top Man In London Real Estate

Thanks to Graham Edwards who is the CEO of Telereal Trillium, the real estate market levels in London has hit record highs. Telereal and Trillium were formerly two separate companies. In 2009 these two powerful real estate companies joined forces. This collaboration is a great example of large-scale property transaction. Edward Graham played a very important role in this deal being orchestrated.

Graham contacted the CEO of Trillium, Ian Ellis with the idea for the collaboration. Edward made this move at the first hearing of Trillium being put up on the market. Graham was named as the Chief Executive Officer of the combined companies Telereal Trillium.

This contract began building Edward Graham’s Legacy as a prominent CEO. As an extension to the first deal when Telereal was formed, the negotiations of Graham was a Trillium from Land Securities Group Plc. acquisition. The new company Telereal Trillium had a large amount of leverage in the market of property management. There had to then be a determination of what was to be done with the collective resources of Edwards and the non-executive director, Ellis.

The new entity had a tremendous amount of equity at hand and made it easy for a quick deal to be made but Edwards chose not to rush in to anything so soon. He was also in no rush to show the power that was held by the new entity either. Graham was smart enough to know that there was no need to make any deals within the first year of the company collaboration. He feels that just like making a deal can be the right thing to do, he believes that not making a deal can be the right thing to do also (http://www.fasttrack.co.uk/company_profile/telereal-trillium/).

Graham Edwards Telereal went to King’s College located in London as well as the University of Cambridge. He graduated from both entities. His education has allow his several opportunities to land positions at higher level organizations. He even serves as an investment officer of Talisman Global Asset Management.
