is now a 100-person management
consulting firm working with For-

inflection points, such as: mergers/
acquisitions, strategy shifts, emerg-
ing competitive/market pressures,
significant regulation changes, or
scaling infrastructure in preparation
for significant growth.
Chase is the founding partner of
and leads the overall strategic direction. She has over 25 years of
experience in consulting and works
with clients in the areas of strategic planning, strategy execution,
complex problem solving and decision-making, and building leadership capacity.
And a part of that strategy is
born out of what Chase calls “the
engine,” an out-of-the-box opportunity for clients.
The engine is a creative space for
teams to gather, dream, plan and grow,
she says. “Our collaboration center
is designed to accommodate groups
from 10 to 100 or more in a profes-
sional, comfortable environment and
is specifically configured for group
decision-making,” Chase says. “The
space is equipped for strategic and
planning sessions, training, board
meetings, problem-solving, ideation
sessions and team receptions.”
Chase counts The Engine as a
differentiator for the firm—a place
where clients can collaborate, cre-
ate and connect and where teams
meet to expand possibilities and get
Another differentiator for the
firm, Chase says, are the people.
“We have a great team. They
come from a variety of industries
and bring years of practical expe-
rience to engagements,” she says.
“They have both the miles and the
scars that define them as experts in
their fields. While we may come
from diverse backgrounds, we are
connected by our similarities—the
most prominent being—a commit-
ment to making a positive differ-
ence in the work we do.”
And that great team is no ac-
cident. Chase says a great deal of
time and effort go into c3’s hiring
process to make sure the firm has
the right people.
“Our people are the difference.
We hire great people. We develop exceptional leaders,” she says.
“We leverage the collective to
solve your wicked problems. c3 is
