Dan Minor, Vice President, Certified Meteorologist, 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. In a previous position, Dan served as a Geospatial Intelligence Officer in Washington D.C., a role that allowed him to use his weather expertise in Arctic policy and maritime domain awareness.
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.
Dan’s military experience had him cross the globe starting in a community that relied more on weather balloons and observations instead of super computers and modeling. One of his first deployment was Mcnurdo Station, Antarctica where Dan was one of the “Frozen Chosen” selected to winter over near the South Pole.
Dan was fond of his time on the USS Peleliu and provided much needed weather support out of Ghibouti Africa of our interests off the coast of Somalia. Dan was a rare breed starting out enlisted and making Chief before taking a commission on snow day at Keesler Air Force base in Biloxi.
At Complete, Dan performs forensic analysis on weather events in order to facilitate the full understanding of damage profiles to commercial, municipal, and residential buildings. 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.
