Chase Spears is a communication expert and aerospace enthusiast who enjoys leading teams, helping leaders to communicate effectively, and living an adventurous life. He is a leader and writer who is equally at home in the board room advising senior executives on communication strategy as with a group of military paratroopers jumping out of jets overseas.
Chase’s commitment to telling the story of America’s soldiers over a 14-year career made him one of the most respected public affairs captains in the Army.
As a staff leader and commander, he became known as a leader who will tell the truth, get results and look out for his team.
Winner of the 2018 Georgetown University Spirit of PR Award, his work has been featured worldwide across networks including Fox News and CNN. Chase has published opinions in the Washington Post and Baltimore Sun. He has been quoted in regional and national publications including PR Week, the New York Times, Washington Examiner, New York Post and Australia’s Morning Bulletin.
Chase recently completed a fellowship at Georgetown University, where he consulted military history nonprofits on how to develop effective communication plans and helped to write the Army’s next generation of public affairs doctrine. He recently moved to Leavenworth, Kansas to enroll in a year-long leadership and military science program at the Army’s Command and General Staff College.
