Chase’s passion to help others surfaced at an early age, and it was soon matched by the equally strong determination to find achievement in work and fulfillment in community volunteering. He was raised by the golden rule in a family guided by a strong moral compass and fierce work ethic, and to this day two pillars of this upbringing shape his professional character: that the true measure of a man is not how much he has or can take, but rather how much he can give of himself to others; and secondly, that principled work is a virtue worthy of reward.
Industrious and ambitious, Chase learned the meaning of working hard at age nine when his father employed him in the family tree-service business. Learning how to begin a project with the end goal in sight, he launched his own landscaping business at age 10. His early success ignited an entrepreneurial fire in him that lead to a management position at age 16 in Chase-Brandon Builders Inc., his family’s custom home construction business, where he oversaw 25 projects to completion in a six-year period – on schedule and under budget.
Complementing this hands-on experience and the managerial skills he had gained with a degree in business management, Chase began a new career in finance. He has served in numerous positions within the financial services industry, including that of international grant expert for a donor advised fund, and both domestic and international back-office operations. He was tapped to lead cross-functional teams across organizations and earned numerous awards for his ability to resolve challenges and streamline procedures.
Now, as Family Officer for Carrington Group, Chase has succeeded in bringing together his experience, strengths, and entrepreneurial spirit in a career that fulfills his desire to help others. With his background in finance, customer service, teamwork, and charitable giving, Chase knows how to leverage the team of experts at Carrington Group to bring clarity and perspective to its families and help them identify and prioritize their personal goals, and how best to achieve them.
Chase gives back to the community by helping underprivileged children find their own successes. As executive director of the Northeast Louisiana chapter of International Student Foundation, a 501c3 charity, he helps support local children who are “aging out” of foster care and wish to go to college.
