Matt Miller, Project Manager

Matt Miller began his career at Complete in 2015 as a Project Manager, learning the ins and outs of the insurance claims industry as John Minor’s right-hand man. As a graduate of Florida State University’s College of Business, John saw professionalism and acute attention to detail as traits that could contribute to successful outcomes for his clients. In his first year Matt acquired Xactimate and WIND Appraiser certifications, and more importantly gained invaluable experience in the field — walking 3.2 million square feet of commercial flat roofs and leading multiple teams daily on roof and interior hail damage inspections.

The roof inspection process has evolved with technology, and so has Matt as he has acquired both FAA 107 Remote Pilot and ITC Level 1 sUAS Thermography certifications, and serves as senior drone pilot at Complete, directing multiple inspection teams daily through the process of aerial wind damage assessments from Hurricane Michael. In addition to leading the drone operation, he also has a vital role in reviewing and finalizing CGC reports before submission to our clients.

When he isn’t deep into an Xactimate estimate or at the controls of a Mavic 2, Matt enjoys time on the golf course — and in fact is a former PGA Golf Professional. Matt looks forward to continuing to serve the insurance industry for years to come and thoroughly enjoys the process that leads to the best two words we ever hear from our clients: Thank You.

Dan Minor, Meteorologist

Dan Minor is an American Meteorological Society (AMS) – Certified Consulting Meteorologist (CCM) who has spent the last 25-plus years working full-time for the United States Navy and part-time with Complete. Dan has served many roles in various states and countries, including his most recent position as Training Department Head at the Fleet Numerical Meteorological and Oceanographic Center (FNMOC) in Monterey, CA. There, he oversaw all aspects of professional training for over 200 environmental and computer scientists, technicians, and other military personnel.

He develops opinions of these events that are backed up by radar, satellite imagery, weather observations, and eyewitness accounts. His understanding of damage-causing weather events such as hurricanes, hailstorms, and tornados is invaluable to the professionals at Complete. This information provides the ability to precisely and accurately estimate scope of damage as it relates to a particular weather event at a specific location, which adds a layer to cost estimating that very few in the industry possess.

Dan lives in Gulf Breeze, FL with his wife Rebecca and son Rex and is happy to be back at the beach where he grew up. In his spare time he enjoys scuba diving and fishing.
