Chase Hale was drawn to American Heritage by the values and priorities signaled in its mission statement. After completing a bachelors degree in general accounting and a masters degree in financial accounting (BYU Marriott School of Management), Chase began his professional career with Deloitte & Touche. Chase specialized as a financial-statement auditor in Deloitte's North Carolina practice where he also is licensed as a Certified Public Accountant. Chase made the jump from public accounting to industry when he accepted an offer to work for MasTec Network Solutions, a project-management company specializing in wireless-telecommunications infrastructure; Chase's last position before leaving MasTec was as the Regional Finance Controller for the Carolinas market. Chase and his wife Laura look forward to the positive impact the school will have on their family as their five children attend as students and as the prescribed literature, history lessons, and other aspects of school curriculum become a starting point for dinner-time and other-family discussions.
