Founder and Chief Executive Officer of QEO Insurance Group.
Prior to launching QEO, David was the powerhouse behind Deep South Insurance, turning the small family-owned business into one of the most successful insurance Managing General Agencies (MGA) in the nation. Under David’s leadership, Deep South grew to be one of the largest MGA’s of its type in the United States.
In 2008, QBE U.S. Agencies, a longtime partner of Deep South and a subsidiary of QBE Insurance Group – one of the 25 largest insurance and reinsurance companies worldwide – purchased Deep South from Disiere for $190 million. After continuing to serve as the company’s CEO to ensure a successful transition, David went on to establish QEO Insurance Group, a turnkey operation providing commercial transportation insurance with over 60 employees in 2 regional offices across the United States.
Philanthropy plays an important role in David’s life through the David & Teresa Disiere Foundation, a charity organization he runs with his wife, Teresa. Their charitable support focuses on efforts that “help change the world one child a time”, providing assistance to underprivileged children and disaster relief to families in need. The charity undertakes community and charitable activities across Texas and the nation, particularly those that benefit children.
David is also a keen collector, with impressive collections spanning classic cars, Lalique Sculptures, art and books.
David earned an M.B.A. from Southern Methodist University.
