Learn About Our Founder Jack Fradin

1928-2010

Fradin and Company, Ltd was founded by Providence native Jack Fradin.

Jack was a graduate of Rhode Island State College in 1949 and a member of the Phi Beta Kappa Society. He was an active member of Tau Epsilon Pi Fraternity and received the Outstanding Platoon Leader of ROTC award. He served in the Korean Conflict as a First Lieutenant in the 2nd Infantry division and was awarded the Commendation Ribbon with Medal Pendant for Meritorious Service.

Jack founded his accounting practice in 1959, and over 51 years, served as Chairman of the State Board of Accountancy, President of the State Society of Certified Public Accountants, as well as on the National Trial Board for the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.

For 34 years, Jack was also Professor of Accounting at the University of Rhode Island. His interest in and concern for his students' success made him a popular and beloved asset of the University with both his students and his peers. He earned many honors throughout his teaching career, including Teacher of the Year on numerous occasions.

On his retirement from the University, he was honored by the governor with State House Proclamation 96H8969 Proclaiming April 26, 1996 as Jack Fradin Day, in which he was declared one of the state's finest educators. He is remembered as the favorite professor by many of the more than 3,000 students he educated. A classroom is also named in his honor in the new business school at the University, and the Jack Fradin Scholarship Fund continues to support University Accounting majors.

Throughout his life, Jack served on many non-profit organizations in the Rhode Island area. He was a founding Board Member of the Rhode Island Opera Company and the treasurer for the Rhode Island Jewish Historical Society.

Jack was also a beloved husband, father and grandfather. His son and longtime partner Neil Fradin continues to lead Fradin & Company, Ltd. in the high standards of service and excellence Jack established.
