President, Distinguished Specialty
A 30-year industry veteran, Brooks Chase leads Distinguished Specialty, a division created by Distinguished Programs’ acquisition of Fulcrum, which combined with Distinguished’s National Specialty Underwriters. The new entity, created in October 2015, specializes in the hospitality and real estate industries – industries on which Chase is an acknowledged expert, having spent the majority of his career managing risk for the resort and hotel industries. Prior to taking the lead at Distinguished Specialty, Chase was president and CEO of the Resort Hotel Association, a member-owned organization that provides insurance products and risk management support for resorts and luxury hotels. He’s also served as president and CEO of the Resort Hotel Insurance Company, and as a member of the American Hotel & Lodging Association’s Risk Management Committee.
