About Danny

Daniel (Danny D.) and Mary D’Agostino have been residents of Satellite Beach for 20 years. Mary is a Marketing Outreach Specialist for WellCare Health Plans. Their children, Jennifer, Jessica and Joseph all attended Holland Elementary, Delaura Middle School and graduated from Satellite High (Joseph from MCC High). Daniel works at Kennedy Space Center as a Safety and Mission Assurance/Quality Assurance Engineer for Bastion Technologies, Inc., the Safety and Mission Assurance Contractor for Marshall Space Flight Center, in Huntsville, AL where he grew up. Marshall is the NASA Center for Excellence in Design and Implementation of Aerospace Propulsion Systems.. He earned a BS in Business Administration, with a Minor in Applied Statistics, from the University of Alabama in Huntsville.

Daniel is a distinguished, highly awarded, career professional in the Government Contracting arena for over 30 years. He serves as his company’s registered agent in Florida, and holds (or recently held) State Licensure in Real Estate Sales and Residential Home Inspection, illustrating knowledge of laws and practices in those activities. He is a certified team facilitator, by Tennessee Associates, giving him a skill set that drives team consensus, and efficient win-win solutions for all.

Through formal business school training, he understands the value of strategic/longer term-planning in formulating sustainable, efficient budgets and expenditures. He also knows that the only way to reduce the tax burden on residents is to highly support local business, thereby expanding tax revenues from the commercial/business base, or else to reduce costs/spending. He is a staunch supporter of law enforcement; his son currently works as a Federal Law Enforcement Officer.   

For a number of years, in addition to coaching youth sports, Daniel has served as a volunteer in  leadership of local non-profit 501(c)(3) Civic Organizations including the Brevard South Beaches Youth Football and Cheerleading Association Board of Directors (2 years Equipment Manager, and 2 years Vice President), and the Satellite Beach Little League Board of Directors (8 years – 5 years as Chief Umpire and Safety Officer), during trying times including the devastating loss of two fields during the 2004 Hurricanes. In both cases, he worked to restructure a league in dire financial straits, by working to benchmark league budgets and operational efficiencies against leagues of similar size, and reorganizing them to be on a solvent, firm financial footing going forward. He is an active volunteer at Brevard charities including Daily Bread, Space Coast Center for Mother with Children, and Via de Cristo, just to name a few. His wife, Mary is a recent past member of Women of the Moose.
