His industry experience includes energy and natural resources, financial services, manufacturing, and health care. He earned his Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Penn State University.
Chase's strong will and determination, coupled with his genuine appreciation of teamwork and different ideas, provide innovative, quality results. Chase said he joined Siegfried because of his "desire to take on diverse projects for prestigious clients."
An avid sports and outdoors enthusiast, Chase enjoys golf, skeet shooting and hiking. When he isn't spending time outside, he attends and watches sporting events, particularly college football, and regularly attends the home games of his alma mater, Penn State University.

Greg's unwavering commitment to quality and integrity, as well as his ability to remain calm in stressful environments, makes him a desirable addition to any team.
