Chase Rief

Co-Founder & Technical Lead

I’m one of two co-founders of Shatterproof, and I’m responsible for the day-to-day operations, business strategy, and client development. My academic journey at the University of Southern California, where I earned bachelor’s degrees in both international relations and political science, laid the groundwork for a career that began at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and transitioned into the complex world of a large marketing firm. This experience exposed me to the challenges within large agencies, fueling my resolve to co-found Shatterproof. Our agency stands as a testament to a different way of doing business, one that fosters lasting relationships, values transparency, and relies on data-driven insights to craft creative, impactful strategies. In addition to my role at Shatterproof, I was appointed as a Newport Beach Library Trustee, a position through which I currently serve, reflecting my commitment to community engagement and lifelong learning.


Away from the professional realm, my passions lie in the embrace of the great outdoors. Whether it's sailing, boating, or skiing, I thrive when surrounded by water. My affinity for nature extends to backpacking to back-country lakes, ensuring that adventure is never far from my agenda. Fitness is more than a routine; it's a lifestyle, evident in my dedication to TRX and OrangeTheory training sessions. My collegiate days as president of Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity at USC were formative, instilling in me the enduring values of teamwork and leadership.
