Overview

Chase has more than 20 years of experience in the industry and has been with HITT since 2020, currently serving as vice president of insurance and risk management.

She enjoyed the intersection of construction and insurance so much, she made it her career. In the role of risk manager, Chase has an understanding of the ecosystem of the construction project from many sides including the owner/developer, general contractor, and subcontractor. In her current role, Chase leads the team that handles the risk management functions for all HITT’s projects nationwide, including property and casualty insurance, performance insurance (SDI), surety, and the captive. Her team collaborates with clients to determine the most robust and cost-effective project risk program for each project and works closely with HITT’s safety team to ensure industry-leading risk management and safety practices are carried out on jobsites nationwide.
