2023 40 Under 40: Chase Marable

Connell Insurance Inc.

Posted online

To Chase Marable, leadership is a verb.

“Leadership is not a title given to you,” he says. “Leadership is the action in how you conduct your behaviors to yourself, others and the community.”

This philosophy has shaped the client-first approach he’s fostered as managing director at Connell Insurance. When providing risk management services, Marable, 27, strives to offer cost-effective options through a pressure-free experience to local businesses and organizations.

In addition to serving his clients, he also serves his community. Over the past three years, he’s worked as chair of the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer in Springfield. Through the event, he’s led a team of community leaders, advocates and patient families to raise more than $606,000 for pediatric cancer research and treatment.

Your proudest moment? Providing the children at St. Jude over 363 days of chemotherapy. 

Your professional aha moment? When I was mentored to focus on a niche. Being niche-based allows you to grow within an industry and develop relationships that would not be possible without a strong understanding of a certain industry or product. This allows you to excel faster and help more people.

Best piece of advice you’ve ever received? “Success has nothing to do with what you gain in life or accomplish for yourself. It’s what you do for others.” —Danny Thomas
