David Boyd

President, QuesTec Mechanical


here are a few guiding principles that David lives by:

• Love God with all my heart, mind, soul, and strength, and love others as Christ loves me.

• Always be learning and growing.

• Character matters more
than reputation. 

• Relationships matter more than being right.  

• Gratitude will lead to happiness.

“These took a while to get put into words, but they are a conglomeration of all the amazing sources I have had in my life,” David says. “Some of these come from my church, from leadership books I have read through the years, from my dad’s leadership philosophy at work and life, and from different people who have poured into me over the years.” 

It is evident that first and foremost, David is a family man. Being a father of four, a husband, a son, and a brother are big motivators. When asked who he gives credit to for where he is today, the answer came easily.

“My parents and my wife. My dad has always challenged me and believed in me more than I believed in myself; my mom was always one who encouraged me and called out things in me and things I did that others did not notice,” he says. “My wife has supported me and sacrificed to allow me to pursue growing QuesTec into what it is today; she does not flinch to call me out when I need to grow and her words of affirmation fuel me to keep working my hardest.” 

His brother, Matt Boyd, also recognizes David’s drive and determination.

“Over David’s career at QuesTec his leadership, vision, and drive have helped push the company to be the largest mechanical contractor in central Missouri, growing the reach of projects performed to over 10 states,” Matt explains. “Sitting at the head of QuesTec for the last three years his influence has led to some of the best years in company history. Outside of work, he is active in Rotary, coaching soccer for Sporting Columbia rec league, Christian Fellowship Church and School, often taking a leadership role wherever he volunteers.” 

David also gives a lot of credit to his mentor, John Harvey, founder of ASELSI International.

“When I was 15 years old my dad took me on a mission trip with Christian Fellowship Church to Guatemala.  We served a missions group called ASELSI (Association of Equipping the Saints International),” he says.  It was through ASELSI that David met John. “John mentored me in serving others, in leadership, in working with teams, in communications.  John invited me into his home and shared his personal library of leadership books. This love of reading has completely impacted my leadership skills and equipped me to step into the role of president of Questec.”
