Come see the Stars! As part of our ongoing coverage of the best brokers in the commercial insurance space, Risk & Insurance®, with the sponsorship of Philadelphia Insurance, is expanding its coverage of the Rising Stars — those brokers who represent the next wave of insurance brokering talent.
Look for these expanded profiles on the Risk & Insurance website and in your social media feeds now and continuing into 2023.
We spoke with Chase Carlisle, vice president at Carlisle Insurance, and a 2022 Public Sector Power Broker winner and Rising Star.
Risk & Insurance: How did you find yourself in the brokering field? What led you to the public sector?
Chase Carlisle: I began my career in the insurance industry after graduating from Texas A&M. I was hired by Travelers to be a commercial property adjuster.
After a 16-month stint there, I moved back to Corpus Christi to join my family’s agency. As a fourth generation Carlisle in the agency, I take great pride in working for a firm that was started by my great grandfather.
Over the past 15 years, I slowly began to transition into the public entity business as I was being mentored by one of the agency principals that had a large public entity book of business.
R&I: What benefits do clients gain from working with a small, local firm like Carlisle Insurance?
CC: Today, we are an agency partner of Acrisure LLC. By being able to remain as Carlisle Insurance but partner with Acrisure, we are able to maintain our local name and presence but access global resources.
R&I: What are some of the risks your public sector clients are most concerned about when they come to you?
CC: The hottest topic in our space recently has been cyber liability and workplace violence coverages.
Unfortunately, these two risks are at an all-time high in the public sector right now.
R&I: What is your favorite part of what you do professionally each day?
CC: My favorite part of my daily job is meeting and helping people.
No day is the same as the previous, and that’s exciting to me.
My family has always operated under the principle of doing what’s right and everything else will fall in place. I put my best foot forward each day.
R&I: What advice do you have for young entrants into the risk and insurance field?
CC: My best advice for someone coming into the industry is to find a successful mentor and latch onto them. The brokers who are successful learned from someone else successful.
Secondly, continue to learn as much as possible, because knowledge is power in our industry. &
