OSI Group President David Mcdonald

August 6, 2017

When a person thinks of a global organization, he or she may think of a large, impersonal, one-size-fits-all, generic company. However, that is not true. When a company expands globally, it actually becomes more personalized and more local in nature. How? Well, according to David McDonald, the president of OSI Group, when a company operates in different locations, the local people who live and work for each location have a good feel for local cultures and what clients need. In a given location of a company, the workers management may have grown up in that location with an understanding of what people in that locale want and/or need. Even if a foreign person from the company comes to that location, he or she can pick up on the local cultures and needs.
