While working at a large fintech company that provides technology and operations solutions to banks and money managers, David McLaughlin recognized the growing need these institutions faced to prevent customers from conducting financial crimes through their systems. In late 2014, he launched QuantaVerse, which was acquired by AML RightSource in August 2021. 

David’s business leadership philosophy and results-oriented approach were honed over the course of both his military and corporate careers. He spent six years as a naval officer, starting in 1986 as an Ensign in the U.S. Navy and attending flight school in Pensacola, FL. A graduate of the highly regarded TOPGUN program, David also completed a combat tour in the Persian Gulf, where he was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross and two Air Medals for bravery in combat. Prior to founding QuantaVerse, David held senior executive positions with IPR International, NES Financial, and SEI. He graduated from West Virginia University and received a master’s degree from Webster University.
