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 acquired an FAA Remote Pilot certification 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 not neck-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 current card-carrying 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.
