Chad FrazellGM & Director of Sales
I’m an ambitious and driven sales entrepreneur from Zionsville, IN. Graduating from Purdue University in 2007 (Boiler Up!), I moved to Indy shortly thereafter to cut my teeth in the business world.
I quickly found the corporate lifestyle unappealing and joined The Web Guys, where I’ve happily been ever since. I’ve spent more than 10 years helping grow our agency into a digital marketing power house, serving as Sales Executive, Client Success, Director of Sales and currently General Manager. The most rewarding aspect for me is building relationships with phenomenal people on a daily basis, while providing a service that truly impacts and improves the lives of our partners.
Facts About Me: Professional entrepreneur and Under Armour wearer by day. Dog lover and reality TV aficionado by night. Crossfitter and Old Fashioned drinker. Best dad jokes in all the land. Period.
Chad SmithSenior Client Success
I grew up in western Pennsylvania (God’s Country) and moved to Indiana for school. After a number of years here I married my beautiful wife, and we’re now parents to two crazy and wonderful kiddos. My favorite activities include cycling, hunting, playing almost any sport, and most of all spending time with my wife and kids.
Some of the best things about working at The Web Guys are seeing our clients succeed and building relationships with them. Also, I eat cake in a bowl filled with cold milk. It will change your life.
Lindsey JohnsonSenior Digital Strategist
After working at The Web Guys for more than seven years, what I love most is the family-like culture we’ve created and the integrity with which we treat each of our respected clients. The loves of my life are my two pitbull pups – Neeko & Bayne – my boyfriend, Andrew, and our little fragile sack of vital organs and responsibility scheduled to make his appearance in August 2017! My spirit animal is Tina Belcher. I very seriously think I am the 5th Golden Girl.
I breathe sarcasm, despise high fives & love live music. I am super-duper superstitious, enthralled by all things tattooed & think Tim Burton = genius. I have a strange affinity for odd numbers & can regularly be found dancing to music only I can hear! I love being surrounded by positive people and try to be happy/fun; continually challenging myself to grow personally and professionally. I truly believe “if you don’t roll with it, you roll under it.”
Ben TuckerTechnical Director
I am a father, husband, Purdue graduate and a tech hungry robot. I love spending time with my family and finding new ways to use technology in my life either at home or at work. I enjoy working hard and will work toward finding a solution for any problem that I face. The harder the challenge, the more fun I have.
Otabek AskarovDevelopment Team
Hi! I’m Otabek and/or BK. I moved to the US recently and discovering America for myself. I’m a father, husband, son and friend of my friends. I enjoy creating magic on the internet with our team, and love to spend time with my daughter and son. I value “wasting time” for reading and learning English.
Danny MooreClient Success
I’m incredibly goal oriented. Work hard, play hard. That’s my mentality. I’m a real team player who gets things done. OK… Sorry about that. Boss was looking. Who am I, really? I like to have a lot of fun and not take anything too serious. I spend most of time with my wife, kids, and dog. When the weather is nice I prefer to be out on a golf course somewhere.
I also spend a lot of time growing my YouTube channel – currently over 100,000 subscribers – woo! I really love working in the digital space mostly due to the challenges and freedoms it offers up. The online marketing world is constantly changing and keeping us on our toes. It’s an exciting field to be in and I’m excited to see what the future holds. Welp, see ya later.
Elizabeth AmbsClient Success
I always knew I had a knack for all things web-related back in my teen years: it was the moment my mother asked me “How do you make this thing reappear again on my screen?” But showing my mother the ways of minimizing and maximizing her browser was just the beginning. Once I got my summer internship at The Web Guys back in 2013, I quickly learned the ways to harness the power of online content and ads for marketing. As a seasoned-regular at The Web Guys, I enjoy making the office cringe with horrible puns daily.
Likes: Video games, skin care products, and stormy days where you don’t want to get out of bed and shirk your adult responsibilities instead.
Dislikes: Bug bites, that blonde kid from The Karate Kid, and that blonde kid from the Harry Potter series.
Haley FreckClient Success
Hi, my name is Haley Freck! I enjoy watching videos of dogs on Facebook, taking long walks through the TJ Maxx candle aisle, and adding to my long list of Pinterest cooking/crafting fails. When I am not spending my time with those activities, you can find me trying to reach my goals of: keeping up to date with new digital marketing trends, expanding my knowledge of Adobe, and someday owning a cow farm (but that is a different story).
I love the digital marketing industry because it is always changing. It is awesome knowing that things are constantly evolving and people are continuously coming up with new techniques and resources. Catch me at The Web Guys, HOW BOU DAH.
Emmelyn BrandtClient Success
Well hello, Emmelyn here! In my free time you can find me consuming unhealthy amounts of sushi, playing hide and seek with my dog Margo, or rewatching the Office all too often. I enjoy advocating for people and animals alike, whether it be helping to save elephants in Cambodia or a client reach their marketing goals.
Digital marketing became my passion in college because of the fact that there is always something new to learn. It’s definitely an industry that keeps you on your toes with new strategies to try. You can find me at The Web Guys munching on some wasabi almonds, listening to my Spotify Discover Weekly and of course getting work done!
Ryan SmithWeb Design Specialist
I’m Pulitzer Prize-nominated artist with long time background in newspapers who decided to move to the digital world full-time to expand my horizons. I’ve called Indianapolis, Muncie, IN, and New Orleans home. Good design to me isn’t just making something look pretty – it’s about putting the research into a project to present it in the easiest, most compelling way possible for the end audience while eliciting an emotional response provided by other art forms.
I have three dogs all with very human personalities, and I certainly talk to them as such. I live with my wonderful girlfriend of two years who keeps me on my toes but grounded. I think it’s important to learn as many skills as possible throughout life, like self defense, and am currently a red belt in Taekwondo. The NBA, and basketball in general, is my biggest hobby love in life, followed by pro wrestling (OOOOOHHHH YYYEEAAAAHHH!). I play a mean air harmonica. It’s never too late to decide to be happy on any given day.
