Carlisle Insurance Broker Chase Carlisle Recognized as a 2022 Public Sector Power Broker
Chase Carlisle, Vice President, Carlisle Insurance
Kristi Warnke, associate director of employee benefits & risk management, Corpus Christi ISD, entrusts her district’s $1.3 billion book of property assets to broker Chase Carlisle.
“He’s built the relationships, is excellent in customer service, and is someone we rely on for subject matter expert advice,” Warnke said.
This year, Carlisle secured another year of property coverage from an insurer that the school district recently settled a lawsuit with.
“They could have easily walked away from us, and we would have been paying a much larger premium somewhere else,” but Carlisle “brought them back to the table, and they insured us another year.”
Gilbert Sanchez started as director of risk management, City of Corpus Christi, six years ago.
That’s also when the city decided to move from a large, national broker to Carlisle Insurance, a local firm. Sanchez was hesitant at first, but said he’s been “pleasantly surprised” since the switch. Carlisle has been in constant communication since day one, whether it be about an update on renewals or adjustments on a claim.
Winter Storm Uri was one such event where that communication proved vital for the city. Sanchez called Carlisle late at night to see if the city had appropriate coverage at several locations following the ice storm.
For Sanchez, “that showed Chase’s continuous availability. I can call him or his team late at night, and he will receive my phone call and field any question I have regarding coverage on our contract or whatever else it may be.”
