Brad Chase has nearly 15 years of experience directing international communications programs for corporations, non-profits, politicians, startups and human rights campaigns. He is partner at Capitol Media Partners, which he co-founded with Richard Grenell, the longest-serving U.S. spokesperson in United Nations history. Chase frequently writes for, appears on-air and is quoted by news outlets like CBS News, CNBC, CNN, Forbes, FOX News, The Hollywood Reporter, The Huffington Post and more. In 2016, he directed the successful campaign to fight the parole of Charles Manson's followers. The story went viral through interviews with Megyn Kelly and Robin Roberts, leading 150,000 people to sign a petition to the Governor of California. In 2014, Chase led Capitol Media Partners' pro bono support for the six former U.S. Army soldiers who broke a five-year silence about their service in Afghanistan with Bowe Bergdahl. Exposing the facts of his disappearance and sharing their eyewitness accounts spurred international headlines and led to Congressional hearings about the White House's negotiations with the Taliban. In 2012, Chase ran the communications strategy for the campaign to free Jason Puracal, a U.S. citizen wrongly imprisoned for 22 months in Nicaragua. Global media exposure - including CNN’s AC360, AP, Reuters and The Today Show - was an integral part of winning Puracal’s release. In 2011, he was named to the PR News "15 to Watch" list, which recognizes the best emerging communications executives in the United States. In 2009, Chase was the Director of Communications and interim department head for DaVita Inc, a Fortune 500 company with more than 34,000 employees. Prior to DaVita, he was a consultant for leading international firms like FleishmanHillard, Hill & Knowlton and Weber Shandwick - and has represented blue-chip companies such as Hilton, Safeway, Symantec and Wal-Mart. His expertise spans the communications spectrum: issues/crisis management, strategic media, public affairs, customer engagement, social media, integrated marketing communications and corporate social responsibility.
