President & Founder
"I don't want to belong to any club that will accept me as a member." - Groucho Marx
Fred Winchar is the president and founder of QuadW International, Inc. and its parent company QuadW International. Fred has more than 30 years of experience in the fields of Executive Management, Marketing, Business Development, and Internet Technology. He has served as a guest lecturer for student engagements at Arizona State University and University of Las Vegas.
Fred is literally 10 times better than one in a million, due to the fact that he can write cursive forward, backward, upside down, and upside down and backwards. Also, he’s just a super guy.
"A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves." - Lao Tzu
Patrick has been with the company since its foundation and has grown from his position as SEO Writer to head all operations and projects for the company.
In his time with QuadW International, Inc. Patrick has honed his skills in sales and marketing, web design and development, SEM and SEO, reputation management, and all other facets of the company, making him the ideal executive for the team (our words, not his. He’s also modest. But not the “too modest” thing, where you just want to tell the person to take the compliment already. He’s just the right amount of modesty).
Digital Content Manager
"Sometimes, life is hard. Things go wrong. In life and in love and in business an in friendship and in health. When things get tough, this is what you should do: Make. Good. Art." - Neil Gaiman
Bill Kurland operates as the Digital Content Manager for QuadW International, Inc. Bill has grown with the company as he, like Patrick, began working for the company as a Content Writer. Bill got proactive in his position and began learning everything he could about modern SEO and SEM techniques and how to properly implement content that reflects current techniques and strategies. Bill likes to consider himself the James Joyce of modern online content (we don’t have the heart to tell him otherwise).
Should you find yourself on the phone with Bill and feel like wasting 30 to 45 minutes of your day, ask him about guitar-based music from the 1940s to the present day, but remember that we warned you.
Web Development Supervisor
"A filing cabinet is a place where you can lose things systematically." - T.H. Thompson
Jason Frumkin is the head of web development for QuadW International, Inc., specifically focusing on the creation of dynamic elements such as application integration and database engineering. In addition to his work as a database engineer and overseeing the web development team, he has a rich background in custom CSS, HTML5, and JQuery.
Jason is also a heck of a guitar player and will on occasion serenade the office with his six-string stylings. We ask him to do it more often, but he just keeps saying, “Always keep ‘em wanting more.”
"Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Don’t teach a man to fish…and feed yourself. He’s a grown man. And fishing’s not that hard." - Ron Swanson
Patrick Murray is the SEO Specialist at QuadW International, Inc. Patrick has years of experience in web development, but has primarily focused his knowledge in the field of Search Engine Optimization and Search Engine Marketing. Before joining the QuadW International, Inc. team in 2012, Pat honed his skills as an SEO coordinator for a web development company that served multiple high profile clients in several industries including professional sports, real estate, and credit bureaus.
Pat really likes video games and “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.” He has been working in secret on a project that would merge his two passions into an unlicensed “Sunny” video game, primarily focusing on the gamer attempting to eat many wheels of cheese before proceeding onto the next “date” level.
In 2014, Patrick received Google Adwords certification and became a member of Google Partners. Patrick passed both the Fundamentals exam with a 90% and the Advanced Display exam with 93% on the first try. Statistics from early 2013 place the number of Google AdWords Individually Qualified Professionals worldwide at less than 20,000.

"It’s art if it can’t be explained. It’s fashion if no one asks for an explanation. It’s design if it doesn’t need explanation." - Wouter Stokkel
Joe is the youngest member of the QuadW team, which means that we treat him like our little brother and tease him about how much Monster he drinks and how many chicken wings he eats on a daily basis. Joe is also one of the most talented designers any of us have ever seen. He passed on a number of full ride scholarships for automotive technical colleges and jobs in the automotive industry in order to pursue his creativity through web design.
Joe designed this site. With our help of course (or at least that’s what we tell ourselves).

"There are three sides to every story: Your side, my side, and the truth. And no one is lying. Memories shared serve each differently." - Robert Evans
Brian is a content writer/strategist who enjoys creating engaging new content, learning new things, and chicken wings. Originally from a small town in upstate New York, Brian was found in a basket deep in the woods of Adams, New York and spent his first formative years being raised by a family of badgers (or so the legend told by his parents goes).
In his free time, Brian enjoys playing video games, reading comics, and watching way too much pro wrestling. He has been writing, blogging, and scripting for most of his life.

Stan enjoys writing so much that he is currently working on a novel of his own, which will in part be influenced by his deep love for comic books and mixed martial arts.

"Every generation imagines itself to be more intelligent than the one that went before it, and wiser than the one that comes after it." - George Orwell
Aib is an avid basketball fan and enjoys both watching and playing the game. He also has an affinity for video games (especially those in the "RPG" genre), and although he doesn’t always have time to pick up a good book, he is voracious when it comes to attaining knowledge about everything and anything.
“Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.”- Bruce Lee
Andrew is a Content Writer for QuadW International, Inc. and a bit of a Renaissance Man.
Andrew has a Bachelors in Arts and Sciences from Concordia and plans on returning in order to receive his MA in a field related to psychology. As a craftsman he was won several competitions for his building skills. A wrestler throughout his high school years, he trained in mixed martial arts in college including kickboxing, Jiu Jitsu, and Muay Thai. He has also been in several bands throughout the years, but is now content to sing solos at his church during the holidays.
We once asked Andrew to change a light bulb and he said he could only help if the light bulb wanted to change. On top of psychology major, musician, mixed martial artist, and craftsman, we can apparently add amateur comedian to the list as well.
“To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift.” –Steve Prefontaine
Alec is currently attending the University of Minnesota – Carlson School of Management, where he is studying Management Information Systems. During his freshman year there he was the Ping Pong Club President and enjoys a friendly challenge.
Alec loves sports including golf and basketball and he ran cross country and track at his high school, although his biggest claim to fame was capturing the votes of his high school peers and being awarded with the distinction of “Softest Hair” (he encourages you to touch it yourself if you have the opportunity. He’s pretty proud of it).
Born and bred in Minnesota, Alec can bust out a mean “MinnesOooohtan” accent and tell you the best places to go, “Oat ‘n aboat,” in the area when asked.
"Someday it'll all be done by machines. Information machines." - From Gravity's Rainbow, by Thomas Pynchon
