The team

Alan Borain – Resources Director and Co-founder

Alan created Chase. Yeah … he’s that guy – the one who answered the call to find a better way of getting things done. In 1994, after owning and running several successful advertising agencies, Alan developed a management system to help companies overcome the same frustrations he had faced – by giving them control of their entire project pipeline. With ongoing development, that software became the Chase Agency Management System we produce today. Alan is innovative, inspirational, and actively involved in making sure that Chase leads in solving the unique problems faced by the advertising industry.
