Matt joined WDT immediately after graduating from the University of Oklahoma (2006) and has served WDT in many roles during his tenure. He began his career as a Forensic Meteorologist where he analyzed various meteorological datasets to generate weather verification reports and products that are widely used in the insurance and roofing/restoration industries. Matt quickly took over management of WDTʼs Forensic Weather department where he oversaw the day to day operations and was responsible for innovation of new forensic weather products. As part of Mattʼs instrumental role in the Forensics business, he lead the effort to unify the WDT and Verisk Climate offering as that partnership was forged. Matt recently transitioned to a role in business development where he can use his strong meteorological and project management background to help prospective customers solve unique problems to make better business decisions based on WDTʼs weather products and services. Matt focuses on GIS, aviation, and government opportunities and continues to collaborate with Verisk Climate on sales into the insurance and restoration industries.
